Uncovering God’s Love…through our Enemies – Sherri Guenther Trautwein

 March 13, 2022

This second Sunday of Lent, we’ll continue with our theme, “Uncovering God’s Love.” Our text from Luke’s Gospel makes reference to Herod and to those who threatened and killed the prophets in days gone by. How might we Uncover God’s Love in the face of those who would be our enemies? What does it look like for our relationships with one another to be revealed for what they truly are and set in the light of God’s justice and peace?

Luke 13:31-35

The Lament over Jerusalem
At that very hour some Pharisees came and said to him, ‘Get away from here, for Herod wants to kill you.’ He said to them, ‘Go and tell that fox for me, “Listen, I am casting out demons and performing cures today and tomorrow, and on the third day I finish my work. Yet today, tomorrow, and the next day I must be on my way, because it is impossible for a prophet to be killed away from Jerusalem.” Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often have I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing! See, your house is left to you. And I tell you, you will not see me until the time comes when you say, “Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.” ’
