Dylan's lectionary is wonderful this week!

I think I would also mention the tendency of mean-spirited, angry, fearful Christians proof-texting their positions to hurt anyone in disagreement. My observation of this reality makes me take the idea of real evil seriously, but I still trust that the faithful pilgrimage is not a crusade against evil. We have to take evil seriously - even Jesus himself is tempted in the wilderness - but it is for God to deal with - Jesus simply resists the temptation.
