Sunday, October 17, 2021 –  21th Sunday after Pentecost​

Good morning! Welcome to worship!

 

We are so glad you’ve chosen to join us for worship today!

 

Scripture Readings:

Isaiah 53:4-12; Psalm 91:9-16; Hebrews 5:1-10; Mark 10:35-45

---------------------------------------------------------------

 

Today’s gospel starts with disciples obsessing over who will be closest to Jesus, leading to Jesus teaching his followers about God’s take on importance and power. Here Jesus makes it explicit that the reversal of values in God’s community is a direct challenge to the values of the dominant culture, where wielding power over others is what makes you great.

When we pray “your kingdom come” we are praying for an end to tyranny and oppression.

We pray this gathered around the cross, a sign of great shame transformed to be the sign of great honor and service.
