God, Self & Other – Luke 28: Go and Bless (the Sending of the 70)

Few words terrify the typical Christian like “evangelism.” It instantly conjures images of hellfire preachers on corners or, worse yet, the awkwardly forced conversation about Jesus with a “non-believing” friend (ugh!).

It’s worth noting that Jesus did neither of these, nor asked it of his disciples.

Jesus did, however, send. He sent ill-equipped, nervous followers to carry the good news of the presence of kingdom of God, and to bless whatever instances of grace they might find already at work. In this episode we look at this call to go and to bless; and hopefully discover it is quite a gift to be sent.

The passage for this week is Luke 10:1-16 (NRSV).
