Same Page Sunday (Choose Life)
Deuteronomy 30, Gospel of Matthew
It’s Same Page Sunday, when the whole church gets together to get on… well, the same page I suppose!
We start with some reflection on Deuteronomy 30, which includes this absolute gem of a verse:
“Now what I am commanding you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach. It is not up in heaven, so that you have to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” Nor is it beyond the sea, so that you have to ask, “Who will cross the sea to get it and proclaim it to us so we may obey it?” No, the word is very near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart so you may obey it.”
