21st Sunday After Penticost - Year B

Crow coming in for a landing (corvus brachyhynchos)This week's Lectionary readings are:
In the Job reading, I found it interesting that God brags about feeding the ravens, when today at least, we usually think of ravens as bad or signs of evil or death.

I was also struck by Hebrews 5:2 "[Every high priest] is able to deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is subject to weakness;" and how that varies from so much of the religious based political commentary lately, which assumes that the speaker knows what is right and everyone else better follow them to get on the straight and narrow.
