Jesus showed courage in the face of fear and opposition. Contrary to popular images of Jesus, he was not stoic, dispassionate, or timid. Instead, Jesus is brave and daring, his love is fierce. He called Herod Antipas a fox and likened himself to a mother hen who takes on danger to protect her young. Listen as Pastor David invites us to cultivate the courage of Jesus and let go of fear, in a message entitled, Be a Hen in the Fox’s Den.

Jesus told a parable of a despised Samaritan who helped a person that had been beaten and left for dead on the road to Jericho. Jesus shared this story in response to the question: “Who is my neighbor?” It’s a powerful story that seeks to crack the stereotypes and prejudices that perpetuate an “us vs. them” mentality. As Shane Claiborne points out, we should be ready to do what the “good” Samaritan did, but we should also be willing to rethink the whole road to Jericho. Listen as Shane invites us to consider how Jesus calls his disciples to reimagine what it looks like to be peacemakers.
