Yielding Wild Grapes

Prophet Margins

Tenth Sunday after Pentecost, Year C

What if we celebrate the church by featuring what happens outside the church? What if we lift up ministry that may be happening in small ways throughout our neighborhood, or city, or world? What if we take time to point out that the church is wherever the congregation is and does whatever it is each member does?

Creator God, who brought forth the world as your vineyard, provided every needed resource, and asked only that we bear good fruit: As we give our offerings, remind us again of the fruit you desire -- justice and righteousness are the ones your prophet Isaiah suggests. Forgive us for the times when our offerings have fallen short and when the only fruit you’ve received is our own self-centeredness. Help us bear the fruit that brings you joy. In the name of your son, our teacher and savior, we pray. Amen. (Isaiah 5:1-7)
