K ingdomtide : A S eason of C hrist ’ s H arvest


Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost September 12 - 18, 2021 • Proper 19 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. The Holy Spirit empowers us with gifts and signs of his presence. Jesus’s own life testifies in both his person and his works that the Kingdom of God is here. The same Holy Spirit that was at work in him abides with us. When Christ ascended in victory, he gave the gift of the Holy Spirit to his people. He empowered ever believer with spiritual gifts to serve the body. He gave ongoing signs of the presence of his Kingdom. These signs and gifts are all manifestations of the one Holy Spirit in us all. He gives them for the common good of the Church and for the glory of God. THIS WEEK’S THEME Come, Holy Spirit: Helper (Paraclete): Power, 1 Corinthians 12.4-7
