This Week at St. Paul's

For Next Sunday: Ezekiel 2:1−5; 2 Cor. 12:1−10; Mark 6:1−13; Psalm 123

June 28 – Fifth Sunday after Pentecost – God “does not afflict from His heart” (Lamentations 3:33). Our salvation is in His heart. So when afflictions come, whether from Him or elsewhere, we know He works in them “according the abundance of His steadfast love” (3:32). We trust in this so we do not turn to the “quick fixes” offered by the world. Prayer: Lord, work in my heart and assure me of my salvation. All else will flow from this. Amen.
