Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost

 

10:00am Worship with Holy Communion

 

 

INTRODUCTION

 

 

The prophet Jeremiah speaks of the incurable wound of his suffering, yet finds in God's words the delight of his heart. When Peter doesn't grasp Jesus' words about suffering, Jesus tells the disciples they will find their lives in losing them. Such sacrificial love is described by Paul when he urges us to associate with the lowly and not repay evil with evil. In worship we gather as a community that we might offer ourselves for the sake of our suffering world.

 

 

Readings

Jeremiah 15:15–21

Psalm 26:1–8 Your love is before my eyes; I have walked faithfully with you. (Ps. 26:3)

Romans 12:9–21

Matthew 16:21–28

 

 

Prayer of the Day

O God, we thank you for your Son,

who chose the path of suffering for the sake of the world.

Humble us by his example,

point us to the path of obedience,

and give us strength to follow your commands,

through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.

Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost

 

10:00am Worship with Holy Communion - Rally Day

 

 

INTRODUCTION

 

Conflict is a part of relationships and life in community. Jesus' words in today's gospel are often used in situations having to do with church discipline. The prophet Ezekiel tells of warning the wicked to turn from their ways, and Paul reminds us that love is the fulfilling of the law. We gather in the name of Christ, assured that he is present among us with gifts of peace and reconciliation.

 

 

 

Readings

 

Ezekiel 33:7–11

Psalm 119:33–40  I desire the path of your commandments. (Ps. 119:35)

Romans 13:8–14

Matthew 18:15–20

 

Prayer of the Day

 

O Lord God,

enliven and preserve your church with your perpetual mercy.

Without your help, we mortals will fail;

remove far from us everything that is harmful,

and lead us toward all that gives life and salvation,

through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
