Proper 28 – Year B 2018: Rule of Life

Job 23:1-9,16-17; Psalm 22:1-15; Hebrews 4:12-16; Mark 10:17-31

Rev. Dr. Tim Connor

The Rule of Life indicates the kind of people in community we aspire to be, and outlines the ministry and mission which is important to us. It provides a unifying structure that integrates different aspects of what we do as a community of believers, holding elements of faith and practice together in a coherent pattern. We can use it to evalutate our growth in faith and grace as it sets out five essential practices:

  • Radical Hospitality
  • Passionate Worship
  • Intentional Faith Development
  • Risk-taking Mission and Ministry
  • Extravagant Generosity

The Rule of Life is aspirational in that it sets a standard of living to strive toward as we imitate the example given to us in the Life of Christ.

Harvest Thanksgiving – 2018

Deuteronomy 26:1-11; Psalm 100; Philippians 4:4-9; John 6:25–35

Rev. Dr. Tim Connor

As urban dwellers we may be removed from the work of the harvest but we are still moved by its celebration. Our lives depend on the harvest to provide food to sustain life. We enjoy food as a source of delight through which we can learn of other cultures and mark special occasions. In the midst of giving thanks we are also reminded of the reality of food insecurity, both at home and abroad, and the destructive force it can be. In the midst of plenty we are brought to ask how we can use the abundance available to us for the good of others.

Proper 24 – Year B (2018)

Proverbs 1:20–33; Psalm 19; James 3:1–12; Mark 8:27–38

Rev. Dr. Tim Connor

James reminds us of the power of the tongue to do good or harm, how what we say can either validate or deny who we claim to be as Christians. To be true to our faith we need to form the habit of speaking in ways that build up others. The language of the liturgy teaches us through repetition to speak of praise and thanksgiving, and to be silent, listening for God’s voice.

Proper 21 – Year B (2018)

1 Kings 8:1,6,10–11, 22–30, 41–43; Psalm 84; Ephesians 6:10– 20; John 6:56–69;

Rev. Dr. Tim Connor

Paul concludes his letter to the Ephesians with a series of exhortations that makes us uncomfortable. They are set to both challenge and encourage us as we take on our identity as faithful followers of Jesus Christ. We are challenged to be strong in the Lord, to put on the whole armour of God and to pray in the Spirit at all times.
