January 30, 2005, 4 Epiphany

The lectionary reading for January 30, 2005, Fourth Sunday after Epiphany

The Collect:

Almighty and everlasting God, you govern all things both in heaven and on earth: Mercifully hear the supplications of your people, and in our time grant us your peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

UPDATE (01/26/05): I forgot the Collect when I posted the lessons.

27But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; 28God chose what is low and despised in the world, things that are not, to reduce to nothing things that are, 29so that no one might boast in the presence of God.

All of the readings for this Sunday are good, but this is one of my absolute favorite passages. Really pokes holes in our inflated egos! It must be a really important thought, though, because it is repeated so frequently in the cycles of the Daily Office, occurring 3 or 4 times each year, I think. (give or take, plus or minus)
