Some questions, and some invitations in today’s sermon on the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37): who are the modern day people crying out for help on the street? How are we stopping to help, or how are we crossing the road? How are we who live the gospel called to amplify love in our current divided and conflict-filled climate of 2016? And how are we committing our whole selves – our money, our time, our energy, our creativity, our faith – to the work of love in the world, and to the communities, organizations, and places that work together to be spaces of dreaming that love, living that love, and changing the world?
