A11: The Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany, Year A (2020)

Phillip Martin

Listen as Phillip Martin, pastor of Epiphany Lutheran Church in Richmond, Virginia sheds light on today’s passage from Matthew 5:13-20. He says, “While your light is important, Jesus is not speaking about individual lights here. He is speaking to his disciples as a group…their power as a collective.” This concept can be quite challenging to our individualistic society. Perhaps we have much to learn from our early Christian predecessors about how to light and flavor our world today.
