September 29 – Pentecost XVI (Proper 21C) – The rich man knew Lazarus’s name (Luke 16:24) but refused to treat him as a human being (Luke 16:19-21). Categorizing Lazarus as a nonentity enabled him to “feast sumptuously.” When we neglect to speak for the unborn or the elderly, when we avoid getting involved in their survival, we join the rich man’s callous carousing. But when we embrace them with our voices and our service, we take our place beside Abraham in heaven’s festivities.

Welcome to our visitors. We pray all will be spiritually enriched by your visit to this “House of God.” Here Christ breaks the silence that surrounds mortal man in his sin and death. Here in Christ Jesus we hear the voice of the Eternal One, and we hear the voice of the Father, and that He loves, that He forgives and that in the resurrection of Christ, He has made us His Children and has given us victory over death itself.
