Joshua 24:1-3a, 14-25 & Psalm 78:1-7; Wisdom of Solomon 6:12-16 & Amos 5:18-24 or Wisdom of Solomon 6:17-20 & Psalm 70; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Matthew 25:1-13.
We discuss Joshua's final word to the people of Israel, Amos' iconic call for torrents of justice, Paul's words on the faithful departed, and Jesus' parable of the ten virgins.
