The 16th Sunday after Pentecost

Sunday School

Our Sunday School resumes this morning.

Holy Eucharist, Rite II

Our Old Testament readings have transformed from the narrative of the Kings (David and Solomon) to the Wisdom literature.  Today's offering is from Proverbs.

From the Epistle of James, we are taken to task for the tendency of people to favor the wealthy over the poor, based upon appearances.  Indeed, that is the direct opposite of the Golden Rule.  James goes farther in addressing the balance between "faith" and "works."

Our Gospel reading from Mark captures Jesus' encounter with the Syrophoenician woman

Readings for Proper 18, Track I, Year B
Proverbs 22:1-2, 8-9, 22-23
Psalm 125
