October 16, 2022 – 19th Sunday after Pentecost
Rev. Denise Clark-Jones


Persistence is a common thread in each of the lectionary passages for today. In our Old Testament reading from Jeremiah, the prophet speaks of the persistence of God, who seeks a new covenant with God’s people after the time of destruction has ended. In the future, God promises a time of replanting, growth and abundant life. The psalmist extols God’s Laws and proclaims their own desire to be persistent in following them. In the Epistle reading from 1 Timothy, the author encourages a congregation to proclaim the Gospel message; “be persistent whether the time is favorable or unfavorable.” In the Gospel reading from Luke, Jesus tells the story of the widow, who persistently sought justice until the judge relented and granted her request.

Almighty and everlasting God, in Christ you have revealed your glory among the nations: Preserve the works of your mercy, that your Church throughout the world may persevere with steadfast faith in the confession of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
