Bulletin Shorts for the Twenty-Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Twenty-Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time – 20 September 2020

Isaiah 55:6-9.  Psalm 145:2-3, 8-9, 17-18.  Philippians 1:20c-24, 27a.  Matthew 20:1-16a.

How Things Work in the Kingdom of Heaven.  This parable about kingdom living may rile us up.  God is as generous to the late-comers to kingdom work as to those who labored longer and, perhaps, harder.  Really?  It is true.  God is so generous, so loving, so good – with ways above our ways and thoughts above our thoughts (reread Isaiah).

  • What work will I do to help bring on the Kingdom of Heaven?
  • How will I pour myself into Christian living without grumbling?
  • How can I be generous to a fault like God this week?
