Ready for the Long Haul
Date: November 9, 2014Liturgical Day: The Twenty-second Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 27A)
called to stay awake blessed by God abundantly generous people
Summary: To be ready for the coming of Christ (whether it happens at the end of all time, or the end of our individual lives) does not mean to be busy doing religious things. It means to be awake to the presence of God in our lives. Practicing discipleship habits (one of which is generosity — that's a hint for Saint Peter members...) can help to keep us awake and aware.
