Weekly resources to enrich worship and learning all week every week

Preparing for 25 - 31 August

Isaiah 58.9b-14; Psalm 103.1-8; Hebrews 12.18-29; Luke 13.10-17RCL Proper 16 Year C

God’s gift of the sabbath

Jesus is teaching in the synagogue on the sabbath. He heals a woman who is bent double. The synagogue leader criticises Jesus for healing on the sabbath. But Jesus reminds his opponents that they care for their animals on the sabbath. Surely the woman matters more than an animal!

This week’s resources explore: being confined by our own rules; freedom to rejoice.

PostScript

Linking this week's reading to the news headlines
PostScript for 18 August: Jesus, cause of division?Jesus speaks of dividing a household (Luke 12.52); we live in a divided country and a divided world.
