Reign of Christ – Year C

Jeremiah 23:1-6; Canticle 19: The Song of Zachariah; Colossians 1:11-20; Luke 23:33-43

Rev. Dr. Tim Connor

Jesus’ journey from Galilee arrives at its destination – the cross. It has been a strange journey, marked by sacrifice rather than the success that we usually celebrate. In the midst of suffering and mockery Jesus offers forgiveness, reconciliation and the possibility of a new beginning. He promises joy, the opportunity to be as fully human as we were meant to be, living without the burdens of fear and guilt.

Proper 15 – Year C

Amos 7:7-17; Psalm 82 Colossians 1:1-14; Luke 10:25-37

Rev. Dr. Tim Connor

Amos’ vision of a plumb-line stands as a symbol of how our actions and attitudes measure up against God’s standard of justice and mercy. When we allow our focus to stray from what is straight and true we can lose sight of the needs of the vulnerable among us whom we are called to care for. In the story of the good Samaritan we see an example of justice and mercy in action, reminding us of God’s inexhaustible love.

Proper 14 – Year C

2 Kings 5:1-14; Psalm 30 Galatians 6:1-16; Luke 10:1-11, 16-20

Rev. Dale Nikkel

“Carry no purse…” The instruction stands in sharp contrast to our usual desire to be in control, prepared for everything that could go wrong. Trusting in God means surrendering some control and leaning into the mystery of His providence and grace. We are called to be open to the opportunities to serve as we face each day.
