Scriptural Theme for Sunday August 20

In gathering as a worshipping community around God’s Word and Christ’s meal we receive strength to be signs of comfort, healing, and justice for those in need.

Scripture readings: Isaiah 56:1,6-8; Psalm 67; Romans 11:1-2,29-32; Matthew 15: 10-28

“God of all peoples, your arms reach out to embrace all those who call upon you. Teach us as disciples of your Son to love the world with compassion and constancy, that your name may be known throughout the earth, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen”
