Click here to listen to this past Sunday’s sermon. The title of the sermon was “The Wrong Question” and the Scripture Reading was Luke 10:25-37. I tried to remind myself and all who were present of how radical this story is. Though we all think we know all about the story of the good Samaritan, this story reminds us that we are called not just to love those whom we know and love. Rather, we are called to a way of life that isn’t interested in restricting our sphere of responsibility. If the wrong question is “Who is my neighbor” or “Who do I have to help?,” a much better question is “How can I help” when we are confronted with need. This is the radical love that Christian discipleship calls us to and frees us for.
