Reflections on Sunday’s Readings: November 3, 2013

ZacchaeusThis is the Thirty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time: For the past couple of months our Sunday readings have focused on discipleship. We experience a shift this weekend to “seeing God acting in our lives”. Our Wisdom story speaks of a God who is powerful and mercy. The gospel story of Zacchaeus wonderfully demonstrates how Jesus can impact our lives. The second reading from the second letter to the Thessalonians emphasizes the need we have to pray for one another that we may be found “worthy of the call so that the name of Jesus may be glorified in us”.

Readings for this Sunday:

Annual Stewardship Drive

Epiphany is a Stewardship parish.  We rely on our parishioners' gifts of time, talent, and treasure.

Reflections on Sunday’s Readings: October 27, 2013

All People of FaithThis is the Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time. This weekend’s scriptures remind us that the prayer of the humble reaches God, and that our God is a “God of justice.” What does justice look like today, especially in relationship to the poor, the oppressed, and the abandoned? Do we, like God, “take the side” of the poor, working for justice for the most vulnerable? As we celebrate our stewardship today, we are also challenged to be all we are called to be. Receiving Eucharist together, we become the body of Christ in the world, to love and serve as Jesus did. This is the heart of our stewardship: offering our time, talent and treasure for the good of all.

Readings for this Sunday:
