Follow a New Path
How do you picture Jesus? For most it includes serene scenes of Jesus with children gathered at his feet or Jesus with the disciples sharing a meal. Some picture Jesus teaching on a hillside or in a boat while others see the Sallman painting that hung in my Grandmother’s home. Perhaps these are the images that come up because we find some level of comfort in them. One image we don’t usually pull up first is angry Jesus - yet we know in fact he did get angry. On Sunday we will look at defiant Jesus - an image where he calls others to task for taking advantage of others and disrespecting God. So hold on to your coffee and donut because Jesus is coming to church on Sunday… and he doesn’t look very happy.
