This Week at St. Paul's

For Next Sunday: Isaiah 50:4−10; James 3:1−12; Mark 9:14−29

September 6 – Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost – Do we not commit the sin of partiality (James 2:1-10) if we treat our born neighbors differently from the way we treat our neighbors who are unborn? Does not the love of Christ compel us to love them the same and treat them the same? Prayer: Father, help me and Your people to love all of our neighbors as You have loved us. Amen.
