Fifth Sunday after Trinity

Personal note: Still taking some family time.

This week the traditional Epistle, like the one two weeks ago, is from 1 St. Peter. In 1 Peter 3:8-15a, there is an exhortation to embody Christian virtue amid the diffuculties and sufferings of earthly life. Trusting in God's grace enables believers to live in love, restraint, patience, peace, etc. with those inside and outside the church. A deep and true happiness based on faith is possible for believers even when they are suffering for the sake of righteousness.
