Lectionary Readings (note that the Gospel expanded to include the previous Sunday's text)
In the name of God- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen.
I don’t know about you all, but I’m looking forward to November 5- the day after the election. We don’t have cable and don’t watch much tv, but still, it’s easy to be tired of the name calling and the bickering. There is so much conflict right now in our government, wouldn’t it be nice if our Scripture readings from today let us focus on something else? But it’s nearly impossible to hear this story about people questioning Jesus on taxes to the Emperor without pondering the proper role of government in our lives as Christians.
