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.
