What teamwork that was! Thank you, Sue O'Hare
A "Sermon" for August 23, 2015
Over the last few weeks, we have heard Jesus explain that he is the bread of life and invite people to eat his flesh and drink his blood. It is sacramental language, but many in his audience took Jesus literally, were scandalized, and turned away.
In the passage we just heard, we learn that the scandal shook not only the crowd, but even Jesus’ disciples. Some complain. Many no longer go about with him.
The apostles—the twelve—stand by Jesus. Still, the lesson is clear: People go through times of testing. Even the best and most faithful struggle at times. Even the best and most faithful fail at times. Struggle and failure are part of the deal.
One way Christians talk about this ongoing struggle to be true to our deepest convictions and our best selves is as a kind of “spiritual warfare.”
Now I have never been entirely comfortable with the language of spiritual warfare . . . ..(click on title)
