Jesus Is Flipping Tables: A Sermon by Canon Vanessa Butler

In today’s gospel, “Jesus is flipping tables, ya’ll,” Canon Vanessa Butler says. The story of Jesus turning over the tables of moneylenders in the temple is well-known, but the Ten Commandments offer us a deeper way to read it. This Lent, she suggests we take up the commandments “not as an obligation, but as a gift, a grace-filled guide to deeper and right relationship with God and others.”
