A sermon my church was nice enough to let me give.
Proper 15 (20) | Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost
Year C | August 14, 2016
12:49 “I came to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!50 I have a baptism with which to be baptized, and what stress I am under until it is completed!51 Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division!
12:52 From now on five in one household will be divided, three against two and two against three; 53 they will be divided: father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”
12:54 He also said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you immediately say, ‘It is going to rain’; and so it happens. 55 And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, ‘There will be scorching heat’; and it happens. 56 You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?
