Eighth Sunday after Pentecost

 

10:00am Worship with Holy Communion

 

 

INTRODUCTION

 

In today's first reading God invites all who are hungry or thirsty to receive food and drink without cost. Jesus feeds the hungry multitude and reveals the abundance of God. At the eucharistic table we remember all who are hungry or poor in our world today. As we share the bread of life, we are sent forth to give ourselves away as bread for the hungry.

 

Readings

 

Isaiah 55:1–5

Psalm 145:8–9, 14–21 You open wide your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing. (Ps. 145:16)

Romans 9:1–5

Matthew 14:13–21

 

 

Prayer of the Day

Glorious God,

your generosity waters the world with goodness,

and you cover creation with abundance.

Awaken in us a hunger for the food that satisfies both body and spirit,

and with this food fill all the starving world;

through your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.

Ninth Sunday after Pentecost

 

10:00am Worship with Holy Communion

 

 

INTRODUCTION

 

Elijah finds the presence of God not in earthquake, wind, or fire, but in the sound of sheer silence. When the disciples face a great storm on the sea, they cry out with fear. Jesus says: "Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid." Amid the storms of life, we gather to seek the calm presence of Christ that soothes our fears. In comforting words of scripture and in the refreshing bread and cup of the eucharist, God grants us peace and sends us forth to be a sign of God's presence to others.

 

Readings

 

1 Kings 19:9–18

Psalm 85:8–13  I will listen to what the LORD God is saying. (Ps. 85:8)

Romans 10:5–15

Matthew 14:22–33

 

 

Prayer of the Day

 

O God our defender,

storms rage around and within us and cause us to be afraid.

Rescue your people from despair,

deliver your sons and daughters from fear,

and preserve us in the faith of your Son,

Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.

Tenth Sunday after Pentecost

 

 

10:00am Worship with Holy Communion

 

INTRODUCTION

 

In Isaiah we hear that God's house shall be a house of prayer for all people and that God will gather the outcasts of Israel. The Canaanite woman in today's gospel is a Gentile, an outsider, who is unflinching in her request that Jesus heal her daughter. As Jesus commends her bold faith, how might our church extend its mission to those on the margins of society? In our gathering around word and meal we receive strength to be signs of comfort, healing, and justice for those in need.

 

 

Readings

 

Isaiah 56:1, 6–8

Psalm 67  Let all the peoples praise you, O God. (Ps. 67:3)

Romans 11:1–2a, 29–32

Matthew 15:[10–20] 21–28

 

 

Prayer of the Day

 

God of all peoples,

your arms reach out to embrace all those who call upon you.

Teach us as disciples of your Son

to love the world with compassion and constancy,

that your name may be known throughout the earth,

through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
