Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost

September 22, 2019

As we are invited today to consider what it means to be managers (rather than owners) of all that we have, it is crucial to recall that we are bought with a price. "Christ Jesus, himself human, gave himself a ransom for all." Apart from the generosity of God we have nothing-we are nothing. By God's gracious favor we have everything we need.
