THE SEVENTH  SUNDAY after PENTECOST

July 3, 2016

Services at 7:45 & 9 am

Introduction

God is the source of our nourishment. Our Lord’s invitation to “take and eat . . . take and drink” is a repeated one. In the holy eucharist, in the word read and proclaimed, in the assembly of the people of God, the dominion of God has come near. Rejoice! Your name is written in heaven.

Readings and Psalm

THE EIGHTH  SUNDAY after PENTECOST

July 10, 2016

Services at 7:45 & 9 am

Introduction

To love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind is to reflect God’s mercy in responding to one’s neighbor. That mercy found its most profound expression in the “gospel that has come to you”—namely the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. That gospel mercy comes to us again today: at the font, at the altar, and from the pulpit. It is very near to you.

Readings and Psalm

THE NINTH  SUNDAY after PENTECOST

July 17, 2016

Services at 7:45 & 9 am

Introduction

Perhaps the church, at its best, is “all ears.” Almighty God urges the faithful, again and again, to “listen up!”—to heed the word from above. So it was with Abraham and Sarah, with Mary and Martha, and the early church at Colossae. So it is today as we join the assembly to hear the word of God, the words of life.

Readings and Psalm

  • Genesis 18:1-10a
    The hospitality of Abraham and Sarah to three visitors of the Lord
  • Psalm 15
    Lord, who may abide upon your holy hill? (Ps. 15:1)
  • Colossians 1:15-28
    Hymn to Christ, the firstborn of all creation
  • Luke 10:38-42
    Jesus says: Martha, your sister Mary has chosen the better part
