“When Jesus Brings A Match”

Dr. Diane Lipsett, preaching
Psalm 82
Jeremiah 23:23-25, 28-29
Luke 12:49-56

In divisive times like ours, we long for and need messages of peace and comfort. Yet in the Gospel today, Jesus refuses any easy peace that avoids or maintains harsh realities. In fact, he says he's kindling fire. Perhaps Jesus' fiery words may help us grasp how to live faithfully amid conflict.
