This Week at St. Paul's

For Next Sunday: Habakkuk 1:1−4; 2:1−4; 2 Timothy 1:1–14; Luke 17:1–10

September 25 – Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 21) – So much does our Father love us that He sends us angels to assist us in our lowest moments (Luke 16:22). Identify those He has surrounded you with and thank them! Then look for the closest Lazarus God has laid at your gate. Brush off the crumbs, shoo away the dogs (16:21), and set him or her a brother’s place (16:27-28) at heaven’s feast (16:19). Prayer: Dear Lord God, make me to find my luxuries in sharing life with Your children. Amen.
