Saint Peterβs Church is a welcoming and diverse evangelical catholic communion. Sermons respect and reflect the rich diversity of this community, and rooted in biblical scholarship and proper distinction between what theologians call God's judgment and promise. This distinction has at its center the conviction that all people are upright before God on account of Christ alone.
Appointed textsThe ecumenical Revised Common Lectionary appoints texts for liturgies in a three year cycle (Years A, B and C). As a commitment to Christian unity, Saint Peterβs follows this cycle.
The texts for the Sixth Sunday after the Epiphany, Year A are:
1 Corinthians 3:1β9
Saint Matthew 5:21β37
