This is the sermon Bishop Scott Mayer preached at the 70th anniversary of St. Luke's in the Meadow, Fort Worth, TX. Luke writes of Jesus’s return to his hometown, and his startling statement in the synagogue following the reading of the prophet Isaiah. Bishop Mayer speaks of the apostles only slowly coming to understand that Jesus’ ministry is to everyone, even the gentiles – that the message of God’s love is for everyone. And he speaks of St. Luke’s 70 years of being witnesses to that love.
