Jesus is newly on a preaching circuit when he ends up in his hometown congregation in Galilee. He had become a bit of a celebrity preacher by the time he went back to his hometown to preach, but nothing can prepare him for this. He stands in the pulpit in front of his daddy and mama, and the woman who scolded him for taking too much cake at social hour when he was five, and the person who taught his 5th grade Our Whole Lives class when he made his first ridiculous off-colored joke. He looks over the crowd, reads a small passage from the scroll, and sits down. Then he stands back up and says “Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing” and drops the mic.
Come hear one of your home-grown preach for the first time in the pulpit of her childhood on the “Power of Today.”
