Lectionary Resources

 

July 12 – 6th Sunday after Pentecost

God's word is like the rain that waters the earth and brings forth vegetation. It is also like the sower who scatters seed indiscriminately. Our lives are like seeds sown in the earth. Even from what appears to be little, dormant, or dead, God promises a harvest. At the Lord's table we are fed with the bread of life, that we may bear fruit in the world. (From Sundays and Seasons)

  • Isaiah 55:10–13; Romans 8:1–11; Matthew 13:1–9, 18–23
  • Installation of Deaconess Ann Maki as Faith Formation Interim Director
  • Holy Communion
July 19 – 7th Sunday after Pentecost

It is an age-old question: why is there evil in the world? In the parable of the wheat and the weeds Jesus suggests that both grow together until the harvest. With Paul, we long for the day that all creation will be set free from bondage and suffering. Having both weeds and wheat within us, we humbly place our hope in the promises of God, and from the Lord's table we go forth to bear the fruit of justice and mercy. (From Sundays and Seasons)

  • Isaiah 44:6–8; Romans 8:12–25; Matthew 13:24–30, 36–43
  • Holy Communion
July 26 – 8th Sunday after Pentecost

As Solomon prays for wisdom, we seek to more deeply know the treasures of faith. In today's gospel Jesus offers everyday images that reveal to us the reign of God: a tree that becomes a sheltering home, yeast that penetrates and expands, a treasured pearl, a net that gains a great catch. Even as we seek the riches of God's reign, the great surprise is that God's grace finds us first! (From Sundays and Seasons)

  • 1 Kings 3:5–12; Romans 8:26–39; Matthew 13:31–33, 44–52
  • Holy Communion
