Fr David's Sermon
28th September 2003
Looking at today's readings the first thing that struck me was their great variety. In fact they seem 'a bit of a dog's dinner'. In the new lectionary the readings are not meant to be related, or to follow a theme, but today's set seem a particular mismatch.
Looking at them again I noticed they have much to say about the realities of our human condition and the divine remedy for our failings. At the end I noticed the Post Communion prayer, itself a bowdlerised version of the Prayer Book Collect for today.
As often the collect provides both a good commentary and reflection on the readings. (You'll forgive me if I refer to the Prayer Book Version.)
