Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost,
August 19, 2018
In the reading from Proverbs, Wisdom is portrayed as a woman who invites people to partake of her banquet. Just as ordinary food is necessary for physical life. Wisdom’s food—insight and understanding—is necessary for fullness of life with God.
Words to the wise also dominate the reading from Ephesians, which envisions Spirit-filled worship that edifies the church.
The Gospel reading from John continues Jesus’ discourse on the bread from heaven from last week, where he invites those seeking eternal life to receive nourishment from his flesh and blood.
May God bless our worship.
Saturday Worship Theme
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.
