Eighteenth week after Pentecost

Someone who isn’t part of Jesus’ own circle is casting out demons in Jesus’ name, and the disciples want him stopped. They appeal to Jesus, as Joshua did to Moses about the elders who prophesied without official authorization. Like Moses, Jesus refuses to see this as a threat. Jesus welcomes good being done in his name, even when it is not under his control. The circle we form around Jesus’ word must be able to value good being done in ways we wouldn’t do it, by people we can’t keep tabs on.

Correspondence from the National Church and the ABT Synod

We acknowledge that the land on which we live and worship is at the boundary between Treaty 7, traditional territory of the Blackfoot, which includes the Siksika, Kainai, Piikani, Stoney-Nakoda, and Tsuut’ina nations, and Treaty 4, traditional territory of the Cree, Sioux, and the Saulteaux bands of the Ojibwa people; and the homelands of the Metis nation. We give thanks that their spiritual and practical relationships to this land have given a rich heritage for all who work, live and pray here.
