July 3 – “The Traveler” Luke 10:1-11, 16-20
The traveler is always an outsider, visiting new places and adjusting to customs and cultures outside their own experience. Jesus warns the disciples that not everyone will welcome them on their journey.
We too, will suffer rejection on our journey as Jesus’ followers. Jesus wants us to make the most of the places we are welcomed and not worry so much about the places that turn us away. It is the places of welcome where an outsider becomes an insider. Embrace them, find them and create them for others.
July 10 - “The Neighbor” Luke 10:25-37
Who is our neighbor? The parable of the Good Samaritan reminds us that the outsider is our neighbor, perhaps even more a neighbor than the so-called “insiders” across the street. Neighbors act with love and grace when it is least expected. Who are the neighbors in your life and how are you called to be a neighbor, inviting and welcoming in spite of perceived differences and disagreements?
