In Luke’s record of Jesus’s “sermon on the plain” he contrasts blessing and sorrow, two contrasting expressions of life experience.  Is this a word for the church today as it was for the ‘People of God’ that Jesus addressed face to face?
Today’s mantra “with man all things are possible” leans toward heaven-on-earth by our own making, as though one day humankind will have solved the problem of pain.
Luke 6:17-26
