Dear <<First Name>>,
There are an abundance of conflicting perspectives on politics, art, religion, family. We have conversations all the time that make us realize that, for better or worse, some people see the same situation from a completely different perspective than we do.
In Sunday's scripture, we pick up where we left of this past week. Jesus has announced his ministry of good news to the poor in the synagogue in Nazareth, but finds himself unable to heal the people of his hometown. Perhaps they cannot change their perspective on the carpenter's son, to see him as something more? Perhaps they cannot change their perspective on God, and how God's healing works? We only know that this difference of perspective leads to big conflict, and they even talk about throwing Jesus off a cliff.
This has me wondering about my own perspective. Would I see things like Jesus? Or would I be one of the hometown crowd unable to see and be healed? I want to see Jesus for who he is, Messiah, Healer, Bringer of Good News. How do I train my eyes and heart to see with Jesus's perspective?
If you also want to see Jesus' work as good news, healing and joy, join us on Sunday to get some perspective.
