The Rev. Anna Doherty, Assisting Priest
Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost
It never ceases to amaze me how sometimes the lectionary, just magically seems to fit the season of the year. How else can you explain why, as we prepare to kickoff stewardship season in a few weeks, we hear from Jesus about the proverbial “camel and the eye of a needle”? A text that deals so directly with the issue of personal wealth and giving seems perfect for stewardship season.
