Listening for God

Season after Pentecost, Ordinary Time, Proper 4, Year B, Old Testament
Scripture: I Samuel 3:1-10 (11-20)

The story of Samuel’s call can be humorous to us because at first Samuel does not recognize the voice of God. It is also instructive to us as we consider how well we listen for God in our own time. We are all called. Sometimes we need help to listen.

Sabbath

Season After Pentecost, Ordinary Time, Proper 4, Year B
Scripture:  Mark 2:23-3:6

 We are now in the long season known as Ordinary Time, which runs through Christ the King Sunday. As we take this journey, nourished by the scriptures appointed for the season and empowered by our baptisms, we are invited to be on the lookout for all the blessings found in the ordinary – to see God at work here and now. And we are compelled to share our blessings with others.

Proper: appropriate, fitting, and during Ordinary Time, the scripture appointed for each particular Sunday. The scriptures for this Season after Pentecost all come from the Gospel of Mark. In today’s Gospel, we hear about the Pharisees challenging Jesus about the Sabbath.
