The Gospel Reading. Luke 10:38-42

38As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”
41 “Martha, Martha,”the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things,42but few things are needed—or indeed only one.Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

Parable of  "Who is My Neighbor"

Luke 10:25-37
25On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
26 “What is written in the Law?”he replied. “How do you read it?”
27He answered, “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
28 “You have answered correctly,”Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”
29But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”
30In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead.31A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side.32So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.33But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.34He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him.35The next day he took out two denariiand gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’
36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”
37The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”
Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

Mary to Jesus as in  Aristotle to Plato 

Luke 10:38-42

38As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”
41 “Martha, Martha,”the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things,42but few things are needed—or indeed only one.Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

The Point so Far: These People are doing what they should be doing. But.....

Send out the 70 (or is that 72)

Luke 10:1-12

1After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. 2He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. 3Go! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves. 4Do not take a purse or bag or sandals; and do not greet anyone on the road.
5 “When you enter a house, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’6If someone who promotes peace is there, your peace will rest on them; if not, it will return to you. 7Stay there, eating and drinking whatever they give you, for the worker deserves his wages. Do not move around from house to house.
8 “When you enter a town and are welcomed, eat what is offered to you.9Heal the sick who are there and tell them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’10But when you enter a town and are not welcomed, go into its streets and say,11‘Even the dust of your town we wipe from our feet as a warning to you. Yet be sure of this: The kingdom of God has come near.’12I tell you, it will be more bearable on that day for Sodom than for that town.

Faith Of Theology :

The Most Damaging Attitude in Our Churches

Why subtle cynicism doesn't look like Jesus.

cynicism[1]

[theme_button type="theme_button medium" link="http://www.relevantmagazine.com/god/church/most-damaging-attitude-our-churches" window="_blank" ]Read this Article[/theme_button]

It was an attitude I learned in Church, and I used to believe it was a strength.  I thought I was simply a critical thinker, full of constructive insights. My husband and I shared a “gift for reflection” and spun many conversations around what we considered to be compelling observations about what the Church and other people were doing wrong and what they could do better. Never mind the fact that our tips were not actually being presented to those we believed would benefit from them. At least we saw the problems, right?

Army of Me: Searching for You

51JaPzeuBrL._SL500_AA280_[1]

http://www.relevantmagazine.com/the-drop/searching-you

In 2007, with the backing of a major label and his dreams at the brink of realization, Army of Me's Vince Scheuerman injured his vocal cords 3 weeks prior to the release of his debut record Citizen. It took 2 years for him to fully recover his voice and despair set in as the dream he had worked on for so long fell apart. But as his voice slowly returned, friends and supporters encouraged him to keep going.

Fast forward 5 years, 2012 opened doors to new friendships, a new hometown of Nashville, a producer Daniel James (Canon Blue), a string arranger Jeremy Larson, and a mixer Chad Howat (Paper Route). These were not only collaborators, but friends and a community— a small army, out of which Searching for You has emerged.

Daniel and Vince selected a specific pallet of sounds for what is now the new Army Of Me album - acoustic guitar, piano, strings, melotron, organ, and vocals that feature the lyric and story. The sound is beautiful, simple, and sensitive. After years of struggle, resistance, and pain, this record represents all of that; as well as the courage to keep moving forward.
