Walking With God

First Reading Sermons, Proper 23 through Thanksgiving

Argile Smith

In each of Sunday's assigned lectionary readings -- The First, Second, and Gospel lessons -- we are invited to view the glorious narrative of scripture through three different, yet harmonious, perspectives. In the first reading, the congregation returns to the heritage of our faith as described in the Old Testament, as well as in the New Testament book of Acts. We travel with the children of Israel as they take their first steps in faith, reliving the highs and lows of that journey with them. Through studying this part of scripture, we can see our own journey of faith played out by an entire nation.

As part of theSermons on the First Readings, Series III, Cycle Aseries,Walking With Godguides us through the last third of the season of Pentecost as Argile Smith explores the first lessons from Proper 23 through Thanksgiving, bringing the lectionary cycle year to its conclusion.By taking us back to the beginning, Smith offers us a better understanding of what it is to nurture an intimate daily walk with God. As we see the faithfulness of God played out in history, we can come to trust God more with our own lives.
