20TH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY (Proper 23)
SUNDAY OCTOBER 14TH 2018
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today. Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.
In our worship today, let us dare to open ourselves to acknowledge our wealth and our failure to ensure that all human beings share in it.
COLLECT FOR THE 20th SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY
God, the giver of life, whose Holy Spirit wells up within your Church:
by the Spirit’s gifts equip us to live the gospel of Christ
and make us eager to do your will,
that we may share with the whole creation the joys of eternal life;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen
READINGS FOR TODAY – Proper 23 (Page 693/694)
First Reading Amos 5: 6-7, 10-15
Amos calls for social justice, warning that only those who care for and support the disadvantaged in society will know the amazing life promised by God.
Second Reading Hebrews 4: 12-end
The writer of the letter to the Hebrews warns that the word of God will judge our hidden intentions, but that Jesus understands our human condition and is there for us.
Gospel St. Mark 10: 17-31
Jesus asserts that those who are rich will find it almost impossible to be part of God’s kingdom. But he adds that, for God, all things are possible.
God our Father, whose Son, the light unfailing, has come from heaven to deliver the world from the darkness of ignorance: let these holy mysteries open the eyes of our understanding that we may know the way of life, and walk in it without stumbling; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
