You knew about weakness before you took the vows of ordination. Yet something in your soul made you get out of the boat and try to walk.
Season after Pentecost | 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A)
Genesis 37:1-4, 12-28; Psalm 105: 1-6, 16-22, 45b; (1 Kings 19:9-18; Psalm 85:8-13;) Romans 10:5-15; Matthew 14:22-33
It's an old saw: When Protestants say “the Bible” they mean the New Testament, when they say “the New Testament” they mean Paul, and when they say “Paul” they mean Romans. I was looking forward to this opportunity to write Living By the Word. Then I received the specific Sundays I was assigned, and I confess I rolled my eyes a little. I could be yet another Presbyterian to write on Romans! I went with Romans anyway.
