Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time
October 22, 2017
Read! Reflect! Respond!

Hearing this lovely opening to Paul’s letter to the Church in
Thessalonica, what single word catches your ear?
What image lingers in your mind from this reading?
by sharing your response to the question with others!

THEME: We thank God for faithfulness.

Reading II : 1 Thessalonians 1:1-5b
Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy to the church of the Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: grace to you and peace. We give thanks to God always for all of you, remembering you in our prayers, unceasingly calling to mind your work of faith and labor of love and endurance in hope of our Lord Jesus Christ, before our God and Father, knowing, brothers and sisters loved by God, how you were chosen. For our gospel did not come to you in word alone, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with much conviction.

Question for Children: In your young life, who has helped you know Jesus as a friend?

Question for Youth: We are supposed to give to God the things that are God’s. What in your life is dedicated to God? How to you keep those things sacred?

Question for Adults: If you were to write a thank you note to someone or to a group who has helped you grow in faith, to whom would you write and what would you say?
