    August 25: What Almost Killed Jesus

                   

    Early in his ministry, Jesus’ hometown neighbors tried to murder him. Not because he claimed to be God. Not because he broke the laws of the Sabbath. But because he claimed that God might actually love other cultures. His bold sermon and the visceral reaction remind us that followers of Jesus are called to boldly proclaim God’s love for all races, no matter what it costs them.

    August 18: Racist & Religious

                   

    From Jonah to Peter to the reaction of Jesus’ neighbors from Nazareth, God’s people have struggled with the “other,” even if the other is a brother or sister in God’s family. This message helps us see that race is as much of a perennial problem as jealousy, pride, or greed, which God deals with through confrontation, repentance, and faith.
