Lectionary: July 16, 2017

In the church calendar, the season between Pentecost and Advent is wonderful for focusing on spiritual growth.  Here are this week’s readings:

Genesis 25:19-34; Isaiah 55:10-13; Romans 8:1-11; Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23

(A lectionary is a list of Bible readings, generally designed to provide a substantial reading of the Bible’s content during the course of a few years, often aligned with the seasons of the church year.)
