This Week at St. Paul's


For Next Sunday: Deuteronomy 18:15−20; 1 Corinthians 8:1−13; Mark 1:21−28; Psalm 111

January 25 – The Third Sunday after the Epiphany – Today’s readings call for repentance. We could rail against our culture that, like Nineveh of old, it needs to repent (Jonah 3:1-5). But repentance needs to start with each of us. Do we commit the sins of our culture? Do we condone them, turn a blind eye to them, or remain silent when we should speak? “Repent,” says Jesus, “and believe in the gospel” (Mark 1:15). Forgiveness abounds for those who do!
