The Liturgy Letter Newsletter – Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost 2017 (Year A)
Holiness, Truth, and Love
God is holy: more awesome than we can imagine or comprehend (Exodus 3:1-15). He has graciously revealed himself and called us to trust him. We respond in gratitude by choosing to walk in truth and love (Psalm 26). Remembering God’s faithfulness and promises (Psalm 105 & Jeremiah 15:15-21), we pursue love, joy, and patience in the midst of our adversaries. Like Jesus, we are to take up our cross and overcome evil with good (Romans 12:9-21). Jesus’ rebuke of Peter reminds us that God’s ways are often counterintuitive to our ways (Matthew 16:21-28). We follow Jesus by practicing self-giving love that cultivates true life.
