A Kingdom Like No Other

“Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.”
– William Shakespeare, King Henry IV

Sermon TextDaniel 2:25-49

Second Scripture ReadingMark 1:14-20

A Prayer for Today: “Keep, we beseech you, O Lord, your Church with your perpetual mercy; and, because the frailty of man without you cannot but fall, keep us ever by your help from all things hurtful, and lead us to all things profitable to our salvation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.” (The Fifteenth Sunday after Trinity – BCP 1662)

Reflect: “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting . . . But my kingdom is not from the world.” – Jesus, John 18:36
