12th Sunday after Pentecost – 2023

Date: August 20, 2023
Key Speaker: Pastor Dan Gerrietts
Season: pentecost
Series: There is no special sermon series at the time of this livestream
Description: In Isaiah, we hear that God’s house shall be a house of prayer for all people and that God will gather the outcasts of Israel. The Canaanite woman in today’s gospel is a Gentile, an outsider, who is unflinching in her request that Jesus heal her daughter. As Jesus commends her bold faith, how might our church extend its mission to those on the margins of society? In our gathering around word and meal, we receive strength to be signs of comfort, healing, and justice for those in need.
