Worship Theme: In the Gospel text for today, those coming to Jesus tried to trap him with a conundrum about the taxes of the day.  In response, he gave them words that still challenge our thinking regarding what we owe and to whom.  How do we make sense of that in our day?
 

Scripture Texts:  Matthew 22:15-22; Isaiah 45:1-7 Psalm 96:1-9

October 29th -- "Which Commandment is the Greatest?"

Worship Theme: The Pharisee who posed this question to Jesus sought to test him.  He expected an either/or answer.  But Jesus’ response unsettled him.  It still does, as it provokes us to grasp the inevitable connection between loving God and loving neighbor!


Scripture Texts:  Matthew 22:34-46; Leviticus 19:1-2, 15-18
