Third Sunday after Trinity

Luke 15:1-10

Trinity III 2013 Wordle
In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

“This Man receives sinners and eats with them.”

Oh, those Pharisees...so right, yet they get things so wrong! We tend to pick on them a bit, don’t we? With good reason, I suppose. These are the hyper-righteous folks of Jesus’ time. They are at the temple as often as they can be. They know Moses and the Prophets forward and backward. They speak long prayers. They give generously to the temple. They teach the law without reproach. They follow the law to high precision (no, not perfectly, but nearly perfectly). This all sounds well-and-good, doesn’t it?
