In the Gospel today we hear that Jesus made a visit home. Word about this radical teacher had gotten around and the religious leaders were not happy. In an effort to protect their son and brother, Jesus’ family try to restrain him in order to protect him. The people who have gathered try to dismiss Jesus’ teachings saying he has "gone out of his mind." The religious leaders even go so far as to say that he is possessed by a demon! Perhaps their way of explaining away someone that they could not cope with. Who in our society is explained away? Who do we wish would stop speak-ing out because it makes us uncomfortable? Who do we know who is speaking the truth and yes is dismissed by those in authority? Who tries to silence others?

One of the criticisms of Christians today is we are not Christ like or are no longer challenged by the gospel message. Sometimes it is easier to "keep your head down." But Jesus knows that in order to bring change, to work for God’s kingdom of love and justice and peace you must stick you head above the parapet, whether that be in our communities, families, or our church.

"I began to wonder if anyone still believed Jesus meant those things he said. I thought if we just stopped and asked, "what if he really meant it?" it could turn the world upside down. It is a shame Christians have become so normal."

- Shane Claiborne
