Hey, everyone! It's #sermoniac time!

Hey, everyone! It's time for another #sermoniac post!  I suspect Rev. Anne Vouga reads ahead in the Lectionary and assigns me to preach on the Sundays when the readings are strange and scary. ;)

This time I need to work out what Jesus meant when he told the crowds that they would have to "hate their families" and "give up their possessions" (yes, all of them) in order to follow him.  

So help me out here, and as always, you don't have to be a seminary geek or even a believer to play, just keep it respectful, please:  How do we read this challenging advice? What might we do with it to help us live better lives in 2013?
