Introduction - C Proper 16 - 2016-07-17


Intro to the Readings
Amos 8:1-12Psalm 52Col 1:15-28Luke 10:38-42
We read from the Prophet Amos as the powerful and abusive push around the poor and needy.
Psalm 52 is about the tyrant – the bully – and the mercy of the Lord.
The Apostle writes to the Colossians about the Lord – who he is – it is a creed like statement.
Today’s Gospel account is of Martha and Mary – one at work and one at the feet of the Lord.

Let us listen at the feet of the Lord.
Let us live as those who bring mercy.
