October 9, 2022 – 18th Sunday after Pentecost
Rev. Denise Clark-Jones


This morning’s Scripture readings speak of God’s plans for our flourishing. The prophet Jeremiah writes God’s commands to the exiled Israelites: to build houses, plant gardens, raise families and seek the welfare of their city of exile. The psalmist exhorts the people to praise God for all God has done for us, while also recognizing that everyone will endure the suffering of some form. When we are brought out from the other side of our pain, we are to give glory to God. In our reading from 2 Timothy, the author, written as if from the Apostle Paul, reflects on his own suffering and encourages endurance in Christ—the one who is faithful — even when we are faithless. In Luke, Jesus encounters ten lepers and heals all of them, but only one—the foreigner—returns to offer thanks to God for having been healed.
