    Those who wanted to follow Christ were told to follow him and not even burry their dead. This sermon explores how Jesus called to deeper discipleship.

    Grumpy Jesus: Feelings and Focus Have you ever been grumpy? I don't mean mere frustration; I mean, have you ever been in a place where no one could do anything right? Maybe you haven’t, but I bet you can notice it in other people. That sounds a lot like Jesus in Today's Gospel reading. more

When I more
