B40.2: The Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost, Year B (2018)

Rachel May

Rachel May, Pastor of Boulevard United Methodist Church in Richmond, Virginia, preaches a sermon on the Gospel lesson from John 6:56-69. “Jesus has known all along that his ministry would repel as well as attract,” she says. “’Blessed are those whom I do not offend,” Jesus acknowledges elsewhere in the gospels. It hurts to think about people leaving because we know that when people do leave, it hurts. People leave in John 6.” But leaving isn’t the whole story. “Some of the disenchanted go away,” May says, “But others go deeper.”
