Ninth Sunday after Pentecost,
July 22, 2018
Two of this week’s scripture readings include the image of God as shepherd. Psalm 23 praises God as the ideal shepherd, who tenderly cares for his sheep.
In the Gospel reading, Mark 6:30-34, 53-56, Jesus refers to the crowds following him as “sheep without a shepherd”. Just as a good shepherd cares for his sheep, Jesus compassionately meets the needs of those who come to him.
In Ephesians 2:11-22, Paul reminds the Christians at Ephesus that originally they were not part of God’s chosen people. Through Jesus’ death, however, they are included in God’s household of faith, whose cornerstone is Jesus Christ.
May God bless our worship.

A worship series entitled “Jesus, Teacher of Faith” continues with this week’s 5:00 p.m. Saturday Contemporary Praise Worship Service. The series focuses on the many ways Jesus taught his followers to live faithfully, ever trusting in God. Pastor Rich Ajer provides the sermon.
