Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost, Year C
Good Grief Sunday
August 14, 2016

I came to bring fire to the earth, and now I wish it were already kindled! I have a baptism with which to be baptized, and what stress I am under until it is completed! Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division! From now on five in one household will be divided, three against two and two against three; they will be divided: father against son and son against father. Mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.” – Luke 12.49-53 (NRSV)
