Rev Jana Norman – Length 13:32




Pentecost 16 – In this week's gospel passage, Jesus declares that we have to give away all our possessions, in order to be one of his disciples. Which seems extreme, when compared with other teachings which extol the joy and pleasure to be found in sharing. A deeper meaning is suggested – that by giving up being possessed by things, we will find ourselves open to the unexpected and unknown presence of God. All great spirituality is about letting go.
Luke 14: 25-33
