Lectionary Mixtape: 3rd Sunday after Pentecost C

Third Sunday after Pentecost C

Text: Galatians 1:11-17

11For I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel that was proclaimed by me is not of human origin; 12for I did not receive it from a human source, nor was I taught it, but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ. 13You have heard, no doubt, of my earlier life in Judaism. I was violently persecuting the church of God and was trying to destroy it.14I advanced in Judaism beyond many among my people of the same age, for I was far more zealous for the traditions of my ancestors. 15But when God, who had set me apart before I was born and called me through his grace, was pleased 16to reveal his Son to me, so that I might proclaim him among the Gentiles, I did not confer with any human being,17nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were already apostles before me, but I went away at once into Arabia, and afterwards I returned to Damascus.

Song: I’m From Nowhere

Artist: Neko Case

Album: The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, the More I Love You

And there you are,
At the edge of the world…
Dangling with my heart a’ pounding.
Above a gulf of hamstrung promises
You sang like “Auld Lang Syne”,
You wanted it so badly that you believed them at the time

With every fashion’s flame,
Every jet plane-lie,
Every second helping of that off-ramp fame we die,
A little…

You’re right, I’m from Nowhere
You’re right, I’m from Nowhere
You’re right, I’m from Nowhere
You’re right.
