SUNDAY SERMON - 2 August
Ninth Sunday after Pentecost
Month of compassion.
Collect: Glorious God, you shower creation with abundance: awaken in us a hunger for food that satisfies, that in the miracle of being fed we will be empowered to feed the hungry in Jesus' name; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God now and for ever.
Gen. 32: 22-31; PS. 17: I-7; Rom. 9: 1-5; Matt. 14:13-21.
Perhaps the only thing that can help us now is hope: not just hope in something, but hope itself.
