  • The author of Ephesians tells his hearers that Christ has torn down the dividing walls between them, that formerly hostile groups are now part of one humanity, no longer strangers. Considering the divisions in our world today, what if we really believed the wall was already down, that a truce was already made?

    Ephesians 2:11-22; 2 Samuel 7:1-14a

  • In this Sunday's gospel, Jesus calls his disciples to leave home without everything except for one outfit, and to wear sandals. In a "don't leave home without it" culture, what does it mean to follow Jesus today? On a weekend when we celebrate national independence, what if we are called to be inter-dependent, on God and on each other? At a time when our nation is struggling to move beyond some of our racial baggage, how might Christians model letting go of anything that keeps us divided or insular? And can these questions really be answered in twelve minutes or less?

    Mark 6:1-3, 2 Samuel 5:1-5

  • "The earth is the Lord's and all that is in it," proclaims Psalm 24. Forgetting the wisdom of God's unique power can prove dangerous, as we discover when we think the earth is ours to do with as we please. Mark's gospel shows the danger of what happens when we forget God's power at work in the lives of others, and try to claim some of that power for ourselves. How do you remember God's power in your life? How does it help you prioritize and keep perspective?

    Mark 6:14-29, Psalm 24
