Letters from a Pastor to His People- November 17, 2019
At first glance, you might look at these readings and not have a warm, fuzzy feeling. They might not appear very consoling to you. "Lo, the day is coming, blazing like an oven...We hear that some are conducting themselves among you in a disorderly way...There will be powerful earthquakes, famines, and plagues from place to place...You will even be handed over by parents, brothers, relatives, and friends, and they will put some of you to death...You will be hated by all because of my name..."
Yes, it is actually, 'yipee.' At least it is 'yipee' to me, and not because I'm a masochist. I take consolation in these readings because they affirm to me how awesome Jesus was and how, once again, the most important thing is our soul and not any material object.
