This week Bryce Wiebe, an ordained deacon in the PC(USA), and currently Associate for Vital Congregations with Eastminster Presbytery in Northeast Ohio brings us this week’s lectionary reflection.
Title – What is Truth?
Scripture – John 11:1-44
Themes – Can we hear the truth from inconvenient sources? Looking at recent scholarship suggesting Mary Magdalene and not Martha was the potential speaker of the famous acclimation of Jesus as Son of God, we wonder about how we dismiss, currently, the voices of those whom we could hold close. Who has good news to share?
