Luke 9:51-62 [The Message]

"Discipleship places heavy demands on followers of Jesus.  The way Jesus takes involves and unprotected mission, a clear choice about priorities, and a clean break with the past."  [quote from my studies this week].  Luke 9 is the beginning of the end: Jesus heading towards Jerusalem, knowing that his way of love, life and liberation will most likely lead towards a cross than a coronation celebration.  In a sense it's the beginning (in the next chapters) of what we might call "Jesus' Following Instructions for Dummies and Disciples."

Oakland is gone.

A funny photo I received a while back, portraying the Imperial Power of Star Wars, having vanquished Oakland moving across the bay to attack San Francisco.  I guess that it could be one way to deal with budget cuts that no one wants to tackle.
