Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost

 

9:00am Sunday School for all ages / Coffee served

10:00am Worship with Holy Communion

 

INTRODUCTION

 

Matthew narrates one of Jesus' controversial parables, in which Jesus says the reign of God is like workers who get paid the same no matter when they start. When God changes his mind about punishing Nineveh for their evil ways, Jonah is angry. Yet God is gracious and merciful, abounding in steadfast love. In baptism we receive the grace of God that is freely given to all. As Luther wrote, in the presence of God's mercy we are all beggars.

 

Readings

Jonah 3:10—4:11

Psalm 145:1–8: The LORD is slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. (Ps. 145:8)

Philippians 1:21–30

Matthew 20:1–16

 

Prayer of the Day

Almighty and eternal God,

you show perpetual lovingkindness to us your servants.

Because we cannot rely on our own abilities,

grant us your merciful judgment,

and train us to embody the generosity of your Son,

Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
