Thirteenth Sunday After Trinity – Church Back Home – August 30, 2015

Following this Gospel reading can cause controversy, according to some. Everyone thinks they know the story of the “Good Samaritan”, but how often have we looked at it in any depth?

Again, we have an issue we see today, shown in Jesus’ time. In those days, Samaritans were the ones referred to as “those people” in much the same way as people today refer to immigrants, gay people, people of color, or anyone else who does not seem entitled to be “one of us”.

Jesus got a lawyer to admit that a Samaritan would be a neighbor! Doesn’t that have some implication for us?<br?>
