October 30, 2022 – 21st Sunday after Pentecost
Rev. Denise Clark-Jones

“Grace, Generosity and Reformation”

Appropriately, on this day when we celebrate our church’s past, the psalmist tells us that one finds happiness in life from having one’s past sins be wiped away by God’s forgiveness. Because the Church has always been made up of people who sin like us, our confessions are both individual and communal. The Protestant Reformation began as an attempt to amend the Roman Church’s past and present abuses and exploitations of its members. In our epistle reading from 2 Thessalonians, the congregation there is praised for growing in faith and love, despite hardship and suffering. In our gospel reading from Luke, we meet Zacchaeus, a despised tax collector. Jesus shocks the crowd, who came to hear him preach, by seeking out the tax collector, honoring him by going to his home and affirming God’s love for him. Like the psalmist, Zacchaeus understands it is through forgiveness and repentance that we are saved for a closer relationship with God and one another.

Almighty and merciful God, it is only by your gift that your faithful people offer you true and laudable service: Grant that we may run without stumbling to obtain your heavenly promises; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
