Week of Sunday, November 12
23rd Sunday after Pentecost
Please note: Rabbi Rosen was scheduled to visit us on Sunday, but had to reschedule. We look forward to seeing him on Sunday, December 10.
The prophet Amos calls for justice to roll down like waters. Paul urges us to encourage one another with the promised coming of the Lord. Jesus tells the parable of the wise and foolish bridesmaids. Surrounded by the faithful of every time and place, we celebrate Christ’s coming in our midst in the word of life and the feast of victory—the marriage feast of the lamb.
