Who Are We?

During the Easter season, Saint Faith's has been using an alternative lectionary for the first reading and psalm.  This lectionary was developed by the English Language Liturgical Consultation and provides a reading from the Hebrew scriptures and an appropriate psalm for the Sundays in Easter for Years A, B and C.  In this lectionary the Acts reading becomes the second reading for the day and the Gospel remains the same as in the Revised Common Lectionary.

For this Sunday the reading was Genesis 35.9-15 where God changes Jacob's name to 'Israel'.  It also happened to be the Sunday following the 111th Synod of the Diocese of New Westminster.  I apologize for no text, but you can listen to an audio recording of my sermon, 'Who Are We?', by clicking on the sermon title.

Blessings to one and to all.
