Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost, Lectionary Year A
Ezekiel 18:1-4, 24-32
Ezekiel's message to God's people during the time of exile speaks to how we can respond today to our history and current circumstances. This week those circumstances included the charges against the killer of Breonna Taylor, the ongoing pandemic, Rev. Lenny Duncan's call for reparations in the ELCA.
Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost, Lectionary Year A
Our guest preacher for this week, Shelby Condray, is a renaissance man in San Diego with a theological degree from Boston University and a passion for justice as an expression of the Gospel. His reflections on the shooting of Jacob Blake and the deaths of other Black and brown people at the hands of the state intersect with the prophetic words of Jeremiah, Paul, and Jesus to weave a powerful image of what it means for us to take up our cross. Enjoy.
