Luke 4:14-21

2007-01-17 — Nepotism, like charity, begins at home

BIBLE PASSAGE — Then Jesus, filled with the power of the Spirit, returned to Galilee, and a report about him spread through all the surrounding country. He began to teach in their synagogues and was praised by everyone. When he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, he went to the synagogue on the sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” And he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. Then he began to say to them, “Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” — Third Sunday after the Epiphany, Series C

    In the words of the first Mayor Daley, “If I can’t help my family and friends, who can I help?”

    See, this is why the man was a brilliant mayor. He had such a command of logic.

    This is Joan again. This comic has really stuck in my brain. I finally remembered the awsome idea which Paul explains: We are all called to be “the Boss’ kids.”
