June 19, 2022 | The 2nd Sunday After Pentecost
This Sunday's texts paint startling pictures of the horrific nature of sin, The church's repeated celebration of holy communion counters that tragic reality in a continued showing forth of the death of Jesus until he comes again. It is a dramatic declaration of "how much God has done for you."
The hymn of praise was changed moving forward in worship and the new hymn is entitled, "Let Us Talents and Tongues Employ." As the body of Christ, we are all called to use our talents to the good of all people. The hymn speaks to the breaking of the bread and that wine is poured among us. We have missed some of you in worship and hope that you are able to come and join us again as we break bread together as our Lord commands us. Verse three of the hymn states, "Jesus calls us in, sends us out bearing fruit in a world of doubt, gives us love to tell, bread to share: God (Immanuel) every-where." Jesus calls us in and sends us out and we hope to see all of you real soon.
You will find the scripture readings and the message for this week in the links below. I offer you the peace of Christ and pray that you are all safe. Keep yourselves in prayer and scripture to keep yourselves strong and able to overcome any concerns that you are facing.
REMEMBER IN YOUR PRAYERS
We encourage you to open your Bible to read the scripture passages before reading Pastor Kern's message.
