Proper 15: Year C – August 15, 2010

A Cloud of Witnesses

  • Isaiah 5:1-7
  • Psalm 80:1-2, 8-18
  • Hebrews 11:29-12:2
  • Luke 12:49-56

In the Bible, faith is never a matter simply for an isolated individual. It involves a community of persons that stretches back into the past, embraces people in the present, and anticipates a fellowship in the future. Faith involves a “cloud of witnesses” to God’s continuing faithfulness. (Paul Hammer, Word Among Us)
