Sermon Text: Luke 4:20-32
You’ve probably heard this phrase: “To every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” This weekend at St. Paul’s it’s all about reaction! The action of crucifying Jesus produced equal and opposite reactions from the two thieves. One ridiculed Jesus, while the other asked for a spot next to him in paradise.
In Jesus’ ministry there always seemed to be equal and opposite reactions. One of those times happened in this week’s Gospel. The towns of Nazareth and Capernaum had equal and opposite reactions to Jesus.
