Our Sacred Roots: The Priesthood of All Believers


T he S eason after P entecost

Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost October 16 - 22, 2022 • Proper 24


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 Reborn to Serve: A CompellingTestimony Commit to Personal and Public Holiness, 1 Peter 3.15-17 We pursue lives of integrity and uprightness both in private and public. We are not our own; we have been bought with a price. The call to holiness is a call to separation from the pollution of sin. As the royal priesthood, we display God’s holy character in the world and show the reality of the Kingdom of God. Let us live holy lives so that we may never be put to shame.

Invocation: Our Prayer of Acclamation Grant, O Lord, that Christ himself may be formed in us, that we may conform to his image; for his name’s sake.
