Proper 27 – Year A (2017)

Exodus 20:1-4,7-9,12-20; Psalm 19; Philippians 3:4b-14; Matthew 21:33-46

Rev. Dr. Tim Connor

Thanksgiving in the life of the Church is both an individual and a corporate act. Our life in Christ has been blessed: we need to celebrate the gifts we have received, both individually and collectively, beginning with the gift of Christ himself. Just as Jesus had a healing ministry among the people we should give thanks for our access to health care. Jesus fed people and so, especially during harvest time we honour him by giving thanks for the abundance of food around us to share and by doing what we can to ensure food security for others. We give thanks for the truth we meet in Jesus, which enables us to face the world with hope and to act on behalf of those who have been pushed to the margins of society.

Harvest Thanksgiving – 2017

Deuteronomy 8:7-18; Psalm 65; 2 Corinthians 9:6-15; Luke 17:11-19

Rev. Dr. Tim Connor

We are given so many good things that it’s too easy to take them for granted. In the midst of the harvest, we discover God’s glory in the bounty that surround us, awakening our sense of wonder at the extraordinary diversity of creation. Reminded of God’s goodness, we give thanks by sharing generously.

Proper 25 – Year A (2017)

Exodus 16:2-15; Psalm 105:1-6,37-45; Philippians 1:21-30; Matthew 20:1-16

Rev. Dr. Tim Connor

The parable of the land owner is unsettling: the idea of the same reward for everyone owner clashes with our sense of fairness and justice. Our culture rewards effort and initiative, but the message of the story is that God’s Kingdom operates differently than that, offering the same reward for to the last and least that is offered to the first. Grace is an act of generosity from a God who keeps seeking to welcome us and restore a whole relationship, not a reward for merit.

Proper 24 – Year A (2017)

Exodus 14:9-31; Psalm 114; Romans 14:1-12; Matthew 18:21-35

Rev. Dr. Tim Connor

To forgive is a core imperative, but isn’t easy to do. We so prize our freedom and individuality that to name an offence and forgive it feels foreign. Forgiveness is an ongoing process that has to come from the heart if it to restore relationships. The community of disciples are the forgiven who are forgiving.
