Theme: Be Not Afraid? Are You Serious, Jesus? A Mini Sermon on Fear from Nadia Bolz-Weber

Luke 13:22, 31-34 (NRSV)

Please note: While we typically do not gather for worship on fifth Sundays, given what is happening in the world, we WILL gather for online Sunday Circle. We will not be making sandwiches for outdoor church. Other arrangements have been made for food for the Outdoor Church community.

In this text from Luke, Jesus has set his face to his Passion, continues to teach along the way of the Kin-dom, is warned that Herod wants to do away with him, and his response is pretty bold! Jesus knows Herod wants to kill him and yet he keeps his face set to Jerusalem – and the work laid out in front of him.

So how – Jesus – can we, who are so afraid – possibly keep showing up and setting our faces to our future? You tell us to “be not afraid”, but seriously, Jesus – that is not enough to make us not afraid! So how do we be right now? How!?!

Prayer for the Fifth Sunday in Lent: Covenant God, may we find ourselves trusting you when the evidence tells us otherwise. May we find ourselves following you when the world says not to. May we find ourselves living with the impossible when everything else says we can’t. May we hear the promise in our souls, and live it in our world. Amen.
