Readings for the Week


July 31, 2016 – Eleventh Sunday After Pentecost
God of wisdom, we are grateful that your Son Jesus calls even us his friend. He warns us to watch out for all kinds of greed. We struggle to remember that true life does not come from an abundance of possessions. Turn us away from seeking our own gain and mindlessly increasing our possessions. Empower us by your Spirit to be more generous toward you. Use these offerings to fulfill your purposes. We pray through Christ, our Savior and Friend. Amen. (Luke 12:13-21)


Readings for the Week


Go forth in the power of the Spirit and be rich toward God:

  • Be bold against cruelty.
  • Accept no peace where there is oppression.
  • Work for justice, God's shalom and the common good.
  • Speak to the conscience of our nation and its institutions.
  • Heal what is broken and pray for others.
  • Hope and sing until the whole creation sings the glad songs with which the world began.
