Sermon on the Good Samaritan, really two sermonettes, one looking at
the twist in Jesus' interaction with the scribe dealing with our
unwillingness to hear and the second looking through Amos at what causes
us to stay on our side of the street, not following the will of God.
O Lord, mercifully receive the prayers of your
people who call upon you, and grant that they may know and understand what
things they ought to do, and also may have grace and power faithfully to
accomplish them; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with
you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
