Episode 51: Blind Dates – Rev. Dr. Kevin Payne

“First Sundays” are a lot like a blind date. I can’t remember where I first heard that comparison, but I have found it to be true. Transitions can be unnerving, fearful, and anxious times. We’re getting to know one another, and there are many emotions that we can be experiencing. In the Gospel lesson for today Jesus send out 72 of his followers into villages to proclaim the Good News to all who would hear. They didn’t choose the villages to which they were sent, nor did they choose the time they were being sent, what they were bringing with them, or how long they would be staying. Yet, the reports from them come back with amazing results. We must remember that we’re being brought together and sent into the world by the great “matchmaker,” who is at work sending us to divine appointments.
