In the Gospel of Matthew is the Sermon on the Mount with the blessings in God’s kin-dom community. In Luke, Jesus speaks what is called the Sermon on the Plain with four “blesseds” and four “woes”. We immediately start wondering whether we are included or excluded. WE wonder what it is that we have to do to be “blessed”. Of course, that increases the tension for us in looking at our lives. Jesus’ message for us might just surprise us.
Come and be with us Sunday as we seek to “Live in the Tension” of being faithful in 2019.
