THE GOSPEL

Matthew 20:1-16a

When those who had started about five o’clock came,
each received the usual daily wage.

Christ,
you know everyone:
each one’s, wants, and needs.

What
will be
your call
to the vineyard,
to the place of grace,
where you heap the fortune
of everlasting life and love on us?

Thank you for your wonderfully constant
call to each of us to work and
live among your vines.


THE FIRST READING

Isaiah 55:6-9

Call on him while he is near.

Seek the Lord while he may be found,
search for him at break of day,
call to him in the night,
look for him in
work and
play,

We do seek you, God, always and everywhere …
in your call to us to fix our planet and
our broken social justice systems.
Let us not miss one detail
of your presence
in each of our
lives.


THE SECOND READING
Philippians 1:20c-24, 27a

Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death

O Christ, please

be at one with
our small
selves,

When
the
world
sees
us

let it
behold

you 
and 
your 
glory 

 within everything we do and are.
