Our Sacred Roots: The Priesthood of All Believers


T he S eason after P entecost

Eighth Sunday after Pentecost July 31 - August 6, 2022 • Proper 13


During “Ordinary Time” (Kingdomtide), we consider God’s saving acts through the unfolding of our days. As Christus Victor, Jesus is exalted at God’s right hand, and he must reign until his enemies are put under his feet. He is the head of the body, the Church, and now he empowers his people to bear witness of his saving grace in the world.

THIS WEEK’S THEME His Life in Us: A Shared Life in Common

Share in theWord and the Table, 1 Corinthians 11.23-26 We gather to retell and reenact the story of Christ and his Kingdom. The Risen Lord revealed himself to his disciples in the explaining of the Word and the breaking of the bread [the Table] (Luke 24.27–31). Christ commanded his followers to teach the Word (Matt. 28.20) and to keep the Table (Luke 22.19). The earliest Church kept the Word and Table (Acts 2.42). Paul delivered as the matters of first importance the Word concerning Christ (1 Cor. 15.3) and the practice of the Table (1 Cor. 11.23).
