The Thirteenth Sunday After Pentecost
This week Jeremiah learns that youth is no excuse, Paul explains the stability of the New Creation, and, for the third week in a row, Jesus calls people names again, albeit while healing a woman whom no one else could heal. All this plus the infamous "rabbi fines" and how Christian devotion is now defined by receiving Bible verses on a Blackberry.
