Lectionary: August 6, 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 32:22-31; Isaiah 55:1-5; Romans 9:1-5; Matthew 14:13-21

(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.)
