Does God Change? with Jim Kast-Keat #LectioCast

Tripp Fuller

Listen to how Jim responds to being put on the spot with this one: Does God change? And it only gets better from there! Jeremiah 18:1-11 The God who can change, and who can change our futures. Here is the potter who can start over with the malformed lump.  Psalm 139:1-6, 13-18 When God knows everything, when it seems that all the days of our life are written in God’s book—what is there to preach? Wait to see what Jim breaks out! Philemon 1:1-21 From sexuality in the psalm to slavery in Philemon—jrdk tells you how it holds together. And Jim says—PREACH THAT. Put it into the larger picture of systems and structures.  Luke 14:25-33 Daniel discloses an early harbinger of his subsequent Enneagram diagnosis. But there’s more going on than real hate: it’s about the cost of following Jesus that we have to be ready for.  Jim Kast-Keat is the Associate Minister for Education at Middle Collegiate Church in the East Village of New York City.

Hospitality and the Fruit of Your Lips with Jim Kast-Keat #LectioCast

Tripp Fuller

Divine hospitality is put on display in God’s great acts of salvation. And God wants God’s people to reflect that lavish hospitality to one another and to expect that God’s own desire is to continue lavishing such abundance on God’s people in the present. Jeremiah 2:4-13 Strong words from God when Israel does not live up to the story that God has given it. This is a passage for you if you’ve got something strong to say—where have we truly fallen into idolatry? Psalm 81:1, 10-16 Who is God? Well, what has God done? That tells you who God wants to be, here and now, for the people: God wants to give you good things—better things than you are capable of getting for yourself! Hebrews 13:1-8, 15-16 Hospitality is the answer to the problems besetting the people of God in the OT texts. Hebrews undermines a somewhat useless over-spiritualized ideas about the Christian life. Luke 14:1, 7-14 A story about communion: God’s radical acceptance of us, lived at the table. It also holds up a mirror to us: how many of us even know someone who doesn’t have the wherewithal to invite us back over for dinner so that we could invite that person to our party?
