Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost

 

10:00am Worship with Holy Communion - Rally Day

Congregation is asked to wear their yellow T-shirts to service

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.

Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost

 

10:00am Worship with Holy Communion

 

 

INTRODUCTION

 

In today's second reading Paul questions why we judge one another, since we all stand before the judgment of God. Yet we do sin against one another, and Jesus' challenge that we forgive seventy-seven times reveals God's boundless mercy. When we hear the words of forgiveness in worship and sign ourselves with the cross, we are renewed in baptism to be signs of reconciliation in the world.

 

Readings

 

Genesis 50:15–21

Psalm 103:[1–7] 8–13  LORD, you are full of compassion and mercy. (Ps. 103:8)

Romans 14:1–12

Matthew 18:21–35

 

 

Prayer of the Day

 

O Lord God, merciful judge,

you are the inexhaustible fountain of forgiveness.

Replace our hearts of stone with hearts that love and adore you,

that we may delight in doing your will,

through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
