Sermon from Last Sunday After Pentecost

LAST SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
November 20, 2022
Proper 29: Jeremiah 23:1-6; Psalm 46; Colossians 1:11-20; Saint Luke 23:33-43

In nomine Jesu!

Today is the last Sunday of the Church Year, which means absolutely nothing except that we are concluding, until November 30, 2025, our nearly-every-Sunday reading of Saint Luke’s Gospel. Luke has gone to great lengths to remind us that it’s more than “the least, the last and the lost” whom Jesus embraces and enfolds into the Kingdom of God. Over the last twelve months we have seen Jesus gather a somewhat motley crew together, from “shepherds, abiding in the fields” to a bandit dying with him on an adjacent cross. This morning I want to remind you of them because, as Jesus gathers, embraces, and enfolds them and us into God’s beloved community, there still is much for us to learn about the shape that community is supposed to take as we seek, this side of Paradise, to be more inclusive. The message is this: In the beloved community Christ calls the Kingdom of God there is more to diversity than mere inclusion.
