Eighth Sunday after Epiphany (B15)

Mark 2:13-22

Hey, Not So Fast!

[...] Now John's disciples and the Pharisees were fasting; and people came and said to him, "Why do John's disciples and the disciples of the Pharisees fast, but your disciples do not fast?"

Jesus said to them, "The wedding guests cannot fast while the bridegroom is with them, can they? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast. The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast on that day. "No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old cloak; otherwise, the patch pulls away from it, the new from the old, and a worse tear is made. And no one puts new wine into old wineskins; otherwise, the wine will burst the skins, and the wine is lost, and so are the skins; but one puts new wine into fresh wineskins."

New teaching, new approach - Jesus was hardly orthodox, and his newness would be a continual problem for the scribes and the religious establishment. New wine, old wineskins. New material, old clothes. This is a pattern that repeats itself many times and many ways. May we be ever open to the new work God creates in and around us, discerning the fruits of the spirit and not getting hung-up on the method of delivery!
