Pentecost 10 C August 18, 2019   (Ps 80, Isaiah 5:1-7, Hebrews 11:23-31, 12:1-2) Luke 12:49-56      Stormy weather **************************************************************** Jesus seems to be in a stormy mood today – telling us he’s come to bring fire on earth and division in families – asking ‘how is it we can tell what the weather’s going to be – looking at the signs of earth and sky – but we don’t know how to interpret the signs of the times?’ We may not have as good a “weather-eye” as people in Jesus’ day – who mostly worked outside, observed nature closely, and could tell with a quick look at clouds and sky – what kind of weather was coming. Now weather-watching’s become an industry, with entire tv channels and websites dedicated to nothing but weather.  And though many people claim to understand the signs of the times… Whether any really do – God knows…  And… We’re in the middle of Luke’s gospel now and the mood is very different from our opening chapters – where, before Christmas, in Luke’s first chapter, we heard Zechariah, daddy of John the Baptist, prophesying of Jesus leading us into paths of peace. Then in Luke’s second chapter, angels we have heard on high tell shepherds tending their flocks by night – (that) baby Jesus, born this night, represents God’s promise of peace on earth, mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled.  And as it is in the beginning, so again it will be in the end – as Jesus, risen from the dead, greets disciples saying Peace be with you. But here in the middle of the story, Jesus is telling us – be ready for division – before we get to multiplication. Be prepared for family feuds… and stormy weather… Over the years I’ve often tried to avoid difficult scripture readings when they come up in our lectionary bible reading schedule. But difficult readings come up rather frequently, since scripture comments on life, and life is good, but difficult. And Jesus tells us he hasn’t come to make life less difficult. More interestingly and healthily difficult – but not less difficult. So – our lectionary bible reading schedule often clusters difficult bible readings together thematically to make it harder for pastors like me to wimp out and cherry-pick only the sweetest scriptures while avoiding the more difficult parts of the bible. Parts of the word of God we do need to hear and consider. If it were otherwise, why does Jesus give us so many difficult sayings to ponder? But over time I’ve been slowly learning – there’s nearly always good news somewhere even in the hardest parts of scripture… If we’re patient enough to listen and hear. What’s been helping me see and hear more of the good news that’s nearly always there, mixed-in with what’s otherwise harder-to-hear-news… has been learning more about the bible’s many ways of communicating indirectly – through analogies, parables, poetry and allusions to other parts of the bible. Parts of scripture are labeled as songs, and in Judaism nearly all scripture has at times been sung in worship settings… So, following the lead of bible scholars, I hear God and Israel singing to each other today – each using vineyard as a familiar and affectionate nick-name for Israel. And since...
