Introduction for the 8th Sunday after Pentecost

It is an age-old question: why is there evil in the world? In the parable of the wheat and the weeds Jesus suggests that both grow together until the harvest. With Paul, we long for the day that all creation will be set free from bondage and suffering. Having both weeds and wheat within us, we humbly place our hope in the promises of God, and from the Lord’s table we go forth to bear the fruit of justice and mercy.


Isaiah 44:6-8 – There is no other God than the Lord

Psalm 86:11-13, 15 – Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth. (Ps. 86:11)

Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43 – The parable of the weeds


The Church Council will meet on Tuesday, July 25th at 6 pm in the library for their monthly meeting.
