Introduction to the Readings - Proper 21 / August 21 - 27

Jer 1:4-10 – Psa 71:1-6 – Heb 12:18-29 – Lk 13:10-17
Intro to the Readings
From the prophet Jeremiah we hear that God knew him before he was “formed in the womb.”
Psalm 71 expresses confidence and hope in God, who sustains even from the mother’s womb.
From Hebrews we listen as the writer to the Hebrews implores us to offer an acceptable worship to God.
In the Gospel we listen as the Lord heals a woman on the Sabbath setting her free.

Let us listen mindful that God, the Creator, knew us before we were formed.
That we offer ourselves in worship.
That we are made free in Christ.
