“(In the synagogue Jesus) opened the scroll and found the passage which says, ‘The spirit of the Lord is upon me because he has anointed me; he has sent me to announce good news to the poor, to proclaim release for prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind; to let the broken victims go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.’ …’Today’, he said, ‘in your very hearing this text has come true.’”
“Let not your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And when I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me.”
What is the good news?
Some time ago - speaking in blog time, that is, a few month's ago - Bishop Dorsey Henderson (Upper South Carolina) wrote "[r]ecently I had a conversation with a Bible teacher in our diocese who was incensed that, in his opinion, she did not express the correct “priority”. ... I am surprised that there is criticism about Ms. Jefferts Shori’s response. " He asked "what do you think" and received a number of comments. The first comment he received: salvation has priority over social services.
UPDATE: What is Chris Sugden trying to say at Anglican Mainstream? Does he see some contradiction in Schori's words?
