Blogging toward Sunday

Lectionary readings for this Sunday include Psalm 119:137-144 and Luke 19:1-10. The passage from the Gospel of Luke tells the well-known story of Zacchaeus. After reading the text a couple of times, consider the following:
  1. What was Zacchaeus' profession?
  2. Why was he unable to see Jesus?
  3. What does he do to overcome this obstacle?
  4. What were Jesus' first words to Zacchaeus?
Finally, on your journey toward Sunday, ponder one last question: "When was the last time I put forth a great deal of effort to be with Jesus?"

Our worship this Sunday will include the celebration of All Saints' Day.

Come, let us worship our Lord and give thanks for those who, while they walked the earth, enriched our lives in endless ways.
