The people of Nazareth were happy to have Jesus back – but only on their terms. They wanted the carpenter back. They wanted God to put everything back to how it was – before Jesus left. We too can be tempted to think God will restore things to how they were in the past, but God is a God of the future.

Listen to the sermon preached by the Revd Bryce Amner on Sunday 8 July 2018.
