This Sunday, we gather to celebrate the Reign of Christ over all of life. Our Scripture reading is from the prophet Jeremiah, who writes to God’s people in exile in Babylon about their call to be faithful even in a strange land, and whose words continue to inspire us to faithfulness in the ordinary and extraordinary moments of our own lives. Sunday School begins at 9am, and worship with Holy Communion begins at 10am. We hope you join us at St. Paul’s this Sunday!
Narrative Lectionary Daily Readings
The Narrative Lectionary focuses our congregation on one Scripture reading each Sunday. Below are some suggested readings to make connections between this past Sunday’s and next Sunday’s texts or to examine related stories in Scripture (from the fine folks at www.clergystuff.com). Further resources for reflection can be found in the inserts in Sunday’s bulletin. (Updated Mondays.)
