WPC Warm Up, June 22, 2015
Throughout life we are celebrated for our strengths. Whether we are good in school, work, specific skills or general abilities we are encouraged to "put our best foot forward." But what happens when the bottom falls out in one aspect of life? This is what has happened to the widow in Luke 7. She has lost the equivalent of her entire retirement portfolio and in many ways her identity in her community. She has come to a place where she would begin to fade into the background and become an unsightly, marginal entity. But the story doesn't end here. Come this Sunday and find out what happens when Jesus "sees" this widow. How might it affect the places in our lives that are unsightly? How might Jesus respond to us?
