WELCOMES YOU!!

The Fifthteenth Sunday after Pentecost

22 September 2019

As we are invited today to consider what it means to be managers (rather than owners) of all that we have.  It is cruial to recall that we are bought with a price.  "Christ Jesus, himself human,...gave himself a ransom for all."  Apart from the generosity of God, we have nothing---we are nothing.  By God's gracious favor we have everything we need.

Amos 8:4-7

Amoswas called by God to prophesy in the Northern Kingdom of Israel.  Peace and prosperity in Israel led to corrupt business practices and oppression of the poor.  The prophet declares that God will not tolerate such a situation.

Psalm 113

The Lord lifts up the poor from the ashes.

1 Timothy 2:1-7

The Pastoral Epistles offer insight into how early Christians understood many practical matters, such as church administration and worship.  The church's focused prayer for others is an expression of the single-minded passion God has toward us in Jesus.

Luke 16:1-13

Jesus tells the curious story of a dishonest man who cheats his employer and then is commended by him for having acted so, shrewdly.  Jesus wonders why his own followers are less creative and diligent in their stewardship given that they are managers of a far more valuable household.

 

Blessings for Students and Teachers

 

Let us pray for all who arebeginning a new school year, that both students and teachers awill be blessed in their academic endeavors.

Almighty God, you give wisdom and knowledge.  Grant theachers the gift of joy and insight, and students the gift of diligence and openness, that all may grow in whiat is good and honest and tgrue.  Support all who teach and all who learn, that together we may know and follow your ways; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
