August 7, 2022 – 9th Sunday after Pentecost
Rev. Denise Clark-Jones


 Our Scripture texts for today stress the critical importance of integrity in our faith and worship. The opening of the book of Isaiah begins with harsh criticism of worship rituals that are devoid of honest confession, repentance, and the pursuit of justice: “remove the evil of your doings from before my eyes; cease to do evil, 17learn to do good; seek justice, rescue the oppressed, defend the orphan, plead for the widow.”  The author of the letter to the Hebrews attests to God’s enduring faithfulness while encouraging us to place our faith in the Lord, using Abraham and Sarah as models of faith. In the reading from Luke’s gospel Jesus also focuses on the need for faith with integrity. He teaches that where we place our treasure is where our heart will be also. Jesus calls us to invest in the Kingdom of God and be alert to his return, which will be at an unexpected hour.

Grant to us, Lord, we pray, the spirit to think and do always those things that are right, that we, who cannot exist without you, may by you be enabled to live according to your will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
