Our Sacred Roots: The Priesthood of All Believers
T he S eason after P entecost
Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost September 18 - 24, 2022 • Proper 20
As Lord of the harvest, Jesus has commissioned his Church during this age to go and make disciples of all nations. During this season after Pentecost, let us obey Christ’s command and share the Gospel to the ends of the earth, gathering in the harvest of souls so ripe for reaping. As Christ’s hands and feet in the world, let us both show and tell of his salvation to a dying and hurting world. This is a season of harvest.
THIS WEEK’S THEME Living in theWay: ADisciplinedWalk BeTransformed, Romans 12.1-2
Paul exhorts Christians not to be conformed to the world, but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. We are united with Christ and God is conforming us to his image. We are conformed to the image of Jesus as we follow in his footsteps. We are united with him in his arrival, life, death, resurrection, ascension, and eventual return. His life is the mold that God uses to transform his people. One day, when we see the Lord, our transformation will cease, and we will be completely like him.

Invocation: Our Prayer of Acclamation Induce me, O Jesus, to lay aside my former self and to be renewed according to Thy will and desire. I will not spare myself, however painful this should be for me: despoiled of things temporal, of my own will I desire to die, in order to live for thee forever. ~ St. Francis of Assisi.
