Jesus is disrupting the comfort of his followers and casting them out to bring peace to the nations in this week's gospel. It's unsettling and yet joyful! Our team come from the length of the country this week, with Jonathan Gale, Gillian Townsley and Richard Johnson joining Mike as he supposedly has a week off in Kapiti!
Jesus does not do what we as individuals or we as the church tend to expect him to. Today's Gospel reading is a clear example of this, which means it brings with it daunting challenges, thought-provoking good news, and a lot to think about as we live our everyday lives. A now-familiar panel of Judy, Jerry and Chris join Mike to talk it through.
Te Pouhere is something unique to our Anglican province: both something we are living and something we are striving towards. This week Mere Montgomery (Tikanga Pasefika), Katene Eruera (Tikanga Maori) and Kelvin Wright (Tikanga Pakeha) weave discussions on the Gospel reading with reflections on what Te Pouhere means, and could mean, for us.
