This week in worship

May 21, 2017 Sixth Sunday Of Easter

Jesus does not leave his followers orphaned. Through the Holy Spirit Jesus comes to abide with his disciples of every generation. As Pentecost draws near, we are reminded that the risen Christ dwells in us as the Spirit of truth. We receive this Spirit in baptism and pray that in our gathering around the Lord’s table the Spirit will transform us to be the body of the risen Christ in the world.

Prayer of the Day

Almighty and ever-living God, you hold together all things in heaven and on earth. In your
great mercy receive the prayers of all your children, and give to all the world the Spirit of your
truth and peace, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and
the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen

  • Psalm 66:8-20 Bless our God, you peoples; let the sound of praise be heard. (Ps. 66:8)
  • 1Peter 3:13-22 The days of Noah, a sign of baptism

  • Jesus said to the disciples: “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask
    the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever. This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you. “I will not leave you orphaned; I am coming to you. In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me; because I
    live, you also will live. On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me; and those
    who love me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them.”
