Week of Sunday, July 29
10th Sunday after Pentecost + Samantha’s Last Day as Vicar
Today is the first of five Sundays with gospel readings from John 6, the first four of which focus on Jesus as bread of life. Today Jesus feeds thousands of people with five loaves and two fish. What we have, what we bring to Jesus’ table, seems like it is not nearly enough to meet all the needs we see around us. But it is not the adequacy of our supplies or our skills that finally makes the difference: it is the power of Jesus working in the littlest and least to transform this world into the world God desires, a world where all the hungry are satisfied.
Readings and Psalm
2 Kings 4:42-44
Elisha feeding a hundred people
You open wide your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing. (Ps. 145:16)
Prayer for wisdom, strength, and Christ’s indwelling
Christ feeding the five thousand
After one year of Ministry in Context and one year of Internship, it’s time for Vicar Samatha to finish school. We know that we will probably still see Samantha around but, this Sunday we celebrate all that she has done with us in the past two years. Join us for 10:30 worship followed by a youth lead party!
