19th Sunday after Pentecost

  • Holy Trinity Lutheran Church 7220 Southeast Cesar E Chavez Boulevard Portland, OR, 97202 United States (map)

Today's gospel combines a saying that makes many of us uncomfortable with a story we find comforting.  Jesus' saying on divorce is another of his rejections of human legislation in favor of the original intent of God's law.  Jesus' rebuke of the disciples who are fending off the children should challenge us as well.  What does it mean to receive the kingdom of God as a child does?
