Readings for the week of November 11

Proper 27

Psalm 127Ruth 3:1 - 4:17Hebrews 9:24-28Mark 12:38-44

Chagall’s depiction of Ruth and Boaz is a reminder to us of the deep faithfulness between people who love of each other whether they be wife and husband, daughter and mother-in-law, or fellow travelers with Christ.

The Collect for this week - Proper 27

O God, whose blessed Son came into the world that he might destroy the works of the devil and make us children of God and heirs of eternal life: Grant that, having this hope, we may purify ourselves as he is pure; that, when he comes again with power and great glory, we may be made like him in his eternal and glorious kingdom; where he lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Paul Hill
