Twenty-sixth Sunday after Pentecost
November 18, 2018
10:00 AM Worship
and Sunday School

    “Look, Teacher, what large stones and what large buildings.” 
    All too often all our culture has to offer is spectacle. There is a constant and ongoing competition for our attention, we live in, nurture, and are trapped within a culture of the outrageous. It’s always something, some kind of spectacle that distracts us from what matters, from what’s urgent.
    Jesus is about to be just one more person crushed by the empire, to offer all he had in a gesture that had to seem ridiculously inconsequential, and yet would change – indeed, save – the world that barely noticed. And yet as he approaches his moment of sacrifice, as tensions increase and the plot thickens, all his disciples can manage is an embarrassingly feeble, “Look, Teacher, what large stones and what large buildings.”
    - David Lose
