NazarethFirst? Nah!

The first time the people riot in Luke is in response to Jesus preaching in his hometown.

#confession #Love and #Politics

Generous Jesus, we confess that you are the Son of God. You heal the sick, you comfort the stricken, you find the lost ones. Yet, we confess we find it easier to love you than our neighbor.
