7 November 2021 - 24th Sunday After Pentecost - Deacon Neville Jones look at the story of Elijah and the widow of Zarephath in the Old Testament, and, in the New Testament, the story of the widow who put just two small coins into the temple treasury. Jesus uses both these women to teach his disciples some unexpected and important truths about the character of God. Their circumstances were very different, but they both showed that God is faithful like no other. Psalm 146 picks up this theme to show that we too can trust him in any and all situations.
Readings: 1 Kings 17:8-16; Psalm 146; Hebrews 9:24-28; Mark 12:38-44
