24th Sunday After Pentecost

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

Widows are visible everywhere in today's readings.  Jesus denounces those scribes who pray impressive prayers but devour widows' houses.  He commends the poor widow who in his view gave far more than the major donors.  Jesus doesn't see her simply as an object of compassion or charity.  She, like the widow of Zarephath who shares her last bit of food with Elijah, does something of great importance.
