First Reading: Jonah 3:10--4:11
After Jonah’s short sermon in 3:4, the Ninevites all repented and God decided to spare the city. Jonah objected to this and became even more angry when God ordered a worm to destroy a plant that was providing shade. The book ends with a question that challenges any who are not ready to forgive: You, Jonah, are all worked up about a bush, but shouldn’t I be concerned about a hundred and twenty thousand Ninevites?
Psalm: Psalm 145:1-8
The Lord is slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. (Ps. 145:8)
Gospel: Matthew 20:1-16
Jesus tells a parable about God’s generosity, challenging the common assumption that God rewards people according to what they have earned or deserve.
Prayer of the Day
Almighty and eternal God, you show perpetual loving kindness to us your servants. Because we cannot rely on our own abilities, grant us your merciful judgment, and train us to embody the generosity of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
While our facilities and presence in the community have grown over time, we have always maintained that church is so much more than a place you "go to." Rather, it's a people who experience, model, and share the good news of God's love, and we believe that the best is before us.
