“Jesus repeatedly warns his disciples about the dangers and suffering that will come. Yet strangely he does not warn his disciples because he wants them to avoid the struggle, or escape the suffering. Rather it seems a call to be awake, to read the signs of the times, to be present in the time of tribulation: in the midst of danger to be attentive to God and to one another.”
A sermon from Revd Richard Carter, delivered on the Thirteenth Sunday after Trinity.
