What a great talk Lucas brought on Sunday! It's been really great hearing people processing it.
One of the things Lucas mentioned that I've been thinking about this week is that Jesus didn't have pat answers to people's questions. Jesus may have repeated himself, but we know that he wasn't always repeating himself. He answered different questions in different ways. He answered the same question asked by different people in different ways. He always seemed to be paying attention to the specific question and the specific asker.
What would our gospel conversations look like if we made commitments to give no pat answers? I don't know, but I'd be excited to see.
