We’re often told how important it is to ease our way into a new responsibility. To take it easy. Don’t bite off more than we can chew. Ask questions. Well, it appears that Jesus never got that memo. In the story we read today of his first sermon preached to his home congregation he chooses a doozy of a text. And then he preaches an even bigger doozy of a sermon. And yet its a sermon that we need to hear too, maybe now more than ever.
