This Week at Worship

Good day to one and all.

 

This Sunday we gather in community at worship to give God our thanksgiving and to hear God's living words for us in music, scripture, words and prayer. Trinity worships at 9:30 and St. James at 11.

 

Our Scripture readings this Sunday are from the Book of Judges, Chapter 4, verses 1 through 7 and the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 25, verses 14 through 30.

 

Our first reading from Judges is a violent text. There is talk of sin, violence and war. Sadly, then and today, the human condition continues to be marked by broken relationships with God, war and violence. Where might you see God in this reading? Where might you see God active and present in the violence and wars of our day? This is the second to last Sunday that we will hear a reading from the Gospel of Matthew for some time. In our reading this Sunday, Jesus teaches his followers by using a parable. You'll recall that Jesus uses parables quite often in his teaching. A parable is a simple story that uses references that people would know in order to illustrate a greater holy, Godly or spiritual lesson. In our reading from Matthew, we hear what is called the Parable of the Talents. Is Jesus speaking of God's in-breaking Kingdom? Stewardship? Positive thinking? Faithfulness? Responsibility? Let's gather on Sunday to listen to God's living words for us and wrestle together what these readings mean for us today.

 

Blessings on your day and weekend.
