Queerying 18th after Pentecost C

Suzannah Porter and Brooke McLain musically queery the RCL readings.

How do you build community in a dumpster fire? 

What makes you glad to be alive?

What priorities get lost when your focus zooms in too close?

What have you learned from times when you have needed God to take the wheel?


Rev. Emily E. Ewing queeries the Gospel reading.
ID: the background shows the setting for Former President George W. Bush's speech implying that the mission was accomplished in Iraq.  In the foreground, President Biden is visible from his 60 Minutes interview in which he stated, "the pandemic is over" and over his left shoulder is a COVID molecule saying "hi, still here"
Gospel: Luke 17:11-19
11On the way to Jerusalem Jesus was going through the region between Samaria and Galilee. 12As he entered a village, ten lepers approached him. Keeping their distance, 13they called out, saying, “Jesus, Commander, have mercy on us!”

14When he saw them, Jesus said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were made clean.

15Then one of them, when they saw that they were healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice. 16They prostrated themself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him. And they were a Samaritan.

17Then Jesus asked, “Were not ten made clean? But the other nine, where are they? 18Was none of them found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19Then Jesus said to them, “Get up and go on your way; your faith has made you well.”

Queeries for the text:
What is between Samaria and Galilee?
What is leprosy?
To whom do we show ourselves when made clean?
What makes you turn back?
When is turning back good?
How do we classify foreigner?
How does faith heal? How doesn't it?

What are your queeries?
