11th Sunday After Pentecost

God’s all-inclusive mercy

Collect: Proper 15

Almighty God, who hast given thy only Son to be unto us both a sacrifice for sin and also an example of godly life: Give us grace that we may always most thankfully receive that his inestimable benefit, and also endeavor ourselves to follow the blessed steps of his most holy life; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen

Genesis 45:1-15 . . . Joseph reveals his identity to his brothers.

Psalm 133 . . . The treasure of unity

Romans 11:1-2a, 29-32 . . . The hopelessness of our disobedience lets God have mercy on us all.

Matthew 15:(10-20)21-28 . . .  A bold Canaanite woman earns Jesus’ approval by clinging to his mercy.

The Chemistry Of The Crumbs“,  by Bishop T.D. Jakes  (a five-part  sermon).

Note: I would have titled this sermon “I’ve Got a Devil to Fight.”  We all don’t have to be moms to be in the picture.  The Chemistry of the crumbs works for all who have a devil to fight, all who have something or someone who, from time to time,  insist on blocking the way of the God’s presence.  We are all entitled to God’s mercy.
