"John the Baptist's version of faith is too hard! Jesus' is too easy! Just like us, they want what THEY want: a God, a faith, that is 'just right.' And, of course, 'just right' usually means 'just like me.' Not surprisingly, Jesus isn't having it."
The Rev. E. Suzanne Wille preaches on the fifth Sunday after Pentecost (July 9, 2017).
Readings: Gen. 24:34-38, 42-49; Ps. 45:10-17; Rom. 7:15-25a; Matt. 11:16-19, 25-30.
