Proper 26/Ordinary 31 – Revelation 21:1-2

There are two sets of scriptures for this coming Sunday. The lectionary selections for this week include: Ruth 1:1-18; Psalm 146; Hebrews 9:11-14 and Mark 12:28-34. Alternate passages include Deuteronomy 6:1-9 and Psalm 119:1-8. For churches observing Sunday as All Saints Day the scriptures include: Wisdom of Solomon 3:1-9 or Isaiah 25:6-9; Psalm 24; Revelation 21:1-6a and John 11:32-44.

From Revelation 21:1-2 – Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

I first read this passage nearly 25 years ago, and it has been a personal favorite ever since. I feel that part of our responsibility as people of faith is to help usher in this new Jerusalem by caring for one another in radical ways.

Prayer:

Gracious God, help us help one another in ways that bring glory to you. AMEN.
