Our Sacred Roots: The Priesthood of All Believers


T he S eason after P entecost

Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost September 25 - October 1, 2022 • Proper 21


The Season after Pentecost is likewise the season before Advent – it is a season of the blessed hope. As we declare Jesus’ return in every Communion celebration, so we confess that he will assuredly appear in power and glory to complete God’s salvation for the world. He will come in power to rescue his own, to make an end of war and sin, and to restore creation under God’s will.

THIS WEEK’S THEME Living in theWay: ADisciplinedWalk Be Disciplined, 1Timothy 4.7-16

We discipline ourselves for godliness. We have been redeemed by God that we might live a life worthy of God and our Lord Jesus Christ, to live a life of excellence, to possess a compelling testimony to the truth and person of Christ and his Kingdom. We pursue a life of dedication, discipline, and sacrifice based on the truth of God’s Word in Christ and in Scripture, where one’s life is lived in a manner worthy of the Lord Jesus Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit, for the purpose of demonstrating Christlike character in the roles, relationships, and responsibilities that God provides, done for the glory of God.

Invocation: Our Prayer of Acclamation Omy Jesus, you bore my burden and the heavy weight of my sins. Should I, then, not bear in union with you, my easy burden of suffering and my sweet yoke of your commandments? Your yoke is sweet and your burden is light: I therefore willingly accept it. I will take up my cross and follow you. ~ Adapted from a prayer by St. Francis of Assisi (1181-1226 AD)
