B127 - Pentecost 5 (Proper 8)

Our guest this week is Rev. Dr. Garry Worete Deverell, Trawloolway man, Anglican Priest, and Vice-Chancellor’s Fellow in Indigenous Theologies at the University of Divinity. We discuss themes of vulnerability and weakness in 2 Cor 8:7-15 and Mark 5:21-43 which accompany teaching of “genuine love” and moments of healing and faith. We also reflect on what the laments in 2 Sam 1:17-27 and Psalm 130 in terms of how Christians might continue to lament in helpful ways.

We refer to Musa Dube’s “Fifty Years of Bleeding” and this episode of the New Testament Review podcast discussing Candida Moss’s article on Mark 5.

Garry Deverell blogs at Uncommon Prayers and his latest book is called Gondwana Theology: A Trawloolway man reflects on Christian Faith.
