Adventures with Justice! (Sermon, Oct. 16, 2016)

Hello Friends!

This week’s story from Luke is about the persistent widow, who begs an unjust judge for justice until he finally gives in and grants it.  This passage seems a little bit all over the place. Luke states at the beginning that it is about Jesus teaching the disciples about prayer, but then in the middle it talks a lot about justice, with the confrontation between the vulnerable widow and the power-wielding judge. Then it ends with God’s promise of justice and a question about faith. That is quite a lot for only 8 verses.

Luke 18:1-8, Sermon, Proper 24, Year C, Oct. 16, 2016

Thanks for stopping by!
