25th Sunday After Pentecost

  • Holy Trinity Lutheran Church 7220 Southeast Cesar E Chavez Boulevard Portland, OR, 97202 United States (map)

November begins with All Saints Day and ends in or near Advent, when we anticipate Christ's coming again.  So the readings today tell of the final resurrection and the end time.  In the turmoil of hope, fear, and disbelief that these predictions provide in us, Hebrews sounds a note of confident trust.  Christ makes a way for us where there is no way, and we walk it confidently, our hearts and bodies washed in baptismal water, trusting the one who has promised.  The more we see the last day approaching, the more important it is to meet together to provoke one another to love.
