September 25, 2022 – 16th Sunday after Pentecost
Rev. Denise Clark-Jones


The God we see in Jeremiah is anguished and broken-hearted. The people of Israel are sick and grieving, and God grieves with them and for them. In grim language, the psalmist laments Israel’s defeat by enemy nations. We are presented with a picture of the dire consequences foolish politics and war have on the land. In the epistle from 1 Timothy, the author urges the congregation to pray for all, including the civil authorities who persecute them. They can live peaceably with the empire and remain faithful and obedient to God, their one and only sovereign authority as revealed to them by Jesus Christ. In our gospel reading from Luke, Jesus tells the puzzling parable of the shrewd manager. When Jesus finishes telling the parable, he concludes with the famous line: “You cannot serve God and wealth.”

O God, you declare your almighty power chiefly in showing mercy and pity: Grant us the fullness of your grace, that we, running to obtain your promises, may become partakers of your heavenly treasure; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
