Pulpit Fictionplus podcast. Reflections of lectionary text, pop culture, current events, etc. Robb Mc Coy and Eric Fistler,
Last Sunday we heard Jesus called Philip and Nathanael. Did they know him already? Or was this their first contact with him? In any case there was something remarkably compelling about Jesus to cause these and others to follow him into an uncertain future.
The astonishing feature of the Mark rogness is that they followed Jesus with no idea of where it would lead. We know very little of the background of any of the disciples whom Jesus calls.
Matthew was a tax collector Matthew 9: What had the other seven done before Jesus came into their lives? As far as we can tell, the twelve persons Jesus called to be his companions were ordinary men.
He picked people probably much like you and me. Furthermore, his disciples were anything but perfect. Many times they misunderstood him. They often hesitated to follow him.
Judas betrayed him and Peter denied him. The capital of Israel was Jerusalem in the former southern kingdom, the religious center with the temple. It is no wonder that Jesus was greeted with such skepticism when he travelled to Jerusalem from his home in Galilee with his Galilean friends.
We believe that God calls each one of us. God not only calls us to follow Jesus, but also calls us into the fields and careers of our lives. God calls people to be pastors and church workers. God calls every single one of us.
In the Middle Ages the clergy was considered a higher status of Christian than laypersons. They usually lived in communities -- monasteries and convents -- unlike laypersons.
The Reformation eliminated those distinctions between clergy and lay by affirming that God calls everybody. We also have callings within family structures -- mother, father, aunt, uncle, child, etc. We serve God in these family callings as well. A friend of mine is a junior high school teacher.
Since he was active in his congregation as a boy, some of his relatives urged him to consider becoming a pastor. He told his own pastor that he felt no calling to be a pastor but felt God wanted him to be a school teacher. After trying unsuccessfully to avoid his calling, he finally arrives in Nineveh and delivers the shortest sermon in the Bible, an eight-word threat of destruction.
To his dismay the sermon is effective.Opinion for Mark Realty, Inc. v. Rogness, So. 2d — Brought to you by Free Law Project, a non-profit dedicated to creating high quality open legal information.
