Homilies on Proper 15

Beyond Mom and Apple Pie  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 12: 49–56
Summary: We think we would like an uncontroversial, comforting Jesus. But Jesus doesn’t fit that mold. Jesus the Savior, healer and teacher is also a Jesus who brings division and conflict as a result of change and discipleship. We must give up our efforts to keep Jesus on a shelf, and instead leave our comfort zone to join him in his work in the world.

Boot Camp for Christians  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 12: 49–56
Summary: Jesus is heading toward Jerusalem where he knows he will be arrested, humiliated and finally nailed to a cross. On his way, he talks with his followers about the hardships ahead for them as well. In case they are being carried along on a spiritual cloud, he wants them to face the harsh realities of being Christian. For you and me the specifics of those dangers are not the same as in Jesus’ day. Few of us will have to sacrifice the love of our parents, brothers or sisters. For us, the challenge of following Jesus is different but just as real. That’s why Jesus provides us with this boot camp conversation about discipleship.

Friendly Fire  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 12: 49–53
Summary: It is true that Jesus said that he came to spread fire upon the earth. However, not all fire is destructive. If there is anything that Jesus was not, it was destructive. So we look beyond the destructive power of fire to reflect on the meaning of divine fire, the gift that it can be and how we are called to spread it.

Fire of Life  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 12: 49–56
Luke 12: 49–53 for LFM
Summary: What looks like an almost senseless rant on the part of Jesus (Who, after all, would want to be labeled anti-family today?) really speaks to the need for us to be a community of faith and support against the temptations of the world that surround us. What choices are you making between the world’s priorities and those of Jesus?

The Bad News About the Good News  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 12: 49–56
Summary: Though Jesus words sound like he desires for families to be at odds with each other, in reality he is merely trying to help his followers understand the consequences of his truth.

Divided Households and Faithful Followers  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 12: 49–56
Luke 12: 49–53 for LFM
