THE ELEVENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST: Proper 15
The first lesson is from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah, and is a prophecy about all nations coming into the inheritance of Israel. The psalm is Psalm 67, which expresses the joy of all nations who come into relationship with God. The second lesson is from Paul’s letter to the church in Rome, and is about how people of all kinds are disobedient to God, but can receive mercy. Finally, the Gospel lesson is from Matthew, and is the account of the foreign woman who seeks healing from Jesus for her daughter, and must persevere to receive that blessing.
