Lee Gatiss expounds the Lectionary Bible readings for the week known as Proper 17 (Year C), which are Jeremiah 2:4-13, Hebrews 13:1-16, and Luke 14:1-14.

There are some shocking and humbling substitutions in the readings for this Sunday, as humans exchange what is good in God’s eyes for temporary trinkets of their own.
