"Mission Mindset" – Luke 10:1-11
Sermon by the Rev. Ben Brannan from Sunday, July 3, 2022. "'Whatever house you enter, first say, "Peace to this house!"' This peace is not a simple hello or greeting. This is a peace that is representative of God’s salvation, that is God’s salvific shalom. This shalom is to be the opening word to all people. . . . As we engage with others, as the 70 did long ago, we must be grounded first in God’s peace, the peace that surpasses all understanding. It is more than a calming presence. It is confidence in God’s abiding presence with us that then allows us to share that presence with others. This peace is the enfolding reality of God’s love. It is the fulfilment of the promise as we read in the first chapter of Luke. It is a peace made known in the birth of Jesus Christ, who came 'to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace' (Luke 1:79)."
