Proper 13


Announcements


Invocation


Scripture: Psalm 49:1-12


1 Hear this, all you peoples; give ear, all inhabitants of the world,

2 both low and high, rich and poor together.

3 My mouth shall speak wisdom; the meditation of my heart shall be understanding.

4 I will incline my ear to a proverb; I will solve my riddle to the music of the harp.

5 Why should I fear in times of trouble, when the iniquity of my persecutors surrounds me,

6 those who trust in their wealth and boast of the abundance of their riches?

7 Truly, no ransom avails for one's life, there is no price one can give to God for it.

8 For the ransom of life is costly, and can never suffice,

9 that one should live on forever and never see the grave.

10 When we look at the wise, they die; fool and dolt perish together and leave their wealth to others.

11 Their graves are their homes forever, their dwelling places to all generations, though they named lands their own.

12 Mortals cannot abide in their pomp; they are like the animals that perish.


“Find Us Faithful”

Hymn #726


O may all who come behind us

Find us faithful;

May the fire of our devotion

Light their way.

May the footprints that we leave

Lead them to believe,

And the lives we live

Inspire them to obey.

O may all who come behind us

Find us faithful.


“A Charge to Keep I Have”

Hymn #536


1 A charge to keep I have, A God to glorify, A never-dying soul to save, And fit it for the sky.


2 To serve the present age, My calling to fulfill; Oh, may it all my pow'rs engage To do my Master's will!


3 Arm me with jealous care As in Thy sight to live, And O Thy servant, Lord, prepare A strict account to give!


4 Help me to watch and pray, And on Thy-self rely, Assured if I my trust betray

I shall forever die.


“It is Well”

Hymn #554


When peace like a river

attendeth my way,

When sorrows like sea billows roll,

Whatever my lot,

Thou hast taught me to say,

It is well, it is well, with my soul.


It is well,

with my soul.

It is well, it is well with my soul.


Tho’ Satan should buffet,

Tho’ trials should come,

Let this blest assurance control,

That Christ hath regarded

My helpless estate,

And hath shed His own blood

For my soul.


It is well,

with my soul.

It is well, it is well with my soul.


My sin-O the bliss

Of this gloious tho’t-

My sin-not in part, but the whole-

Is nailed to His cross,

And I bear it no more!

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord

O my soul!


It is well,

with my soul.

It is well, it is well with my soul.


And, Lord, haste the day

When the faith shall be sight,

The clouds be rolled back as a scroll,

The trump shall resound

And the Lord shall descend.

Even so-

It is well with my sou.


It is well,

with my soul.

It is well, it is well with my soul.

Scripture: Colossians 3:1-11


1 So if you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.

2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth,

3 for you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

4 When Christ who is your life is revealed, then you also will be revealed with him in glory.

5 Put to death, therefore, whatever in you is earthly: fornication, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed (which is idolatry).

6 On account of these the wrath of God is coming on those who are disobedient.

7 These are the ways you also once followed, when you were living that life.

8 But now you must get rid of all such things—anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive language from your mouth.

9 Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have stripped off the old self with its practices

10 and have clothed yourselves with the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge according to the image of its creator.

11 In that renewal there is no longer Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and free; but Christ is all and in all!

Pastoral Prayer-Joys & Concerns


Scripture: Luke 12:13-21

13 Someone in the crowd said to him, "Teacher, tell my brother to divide the family inheritance with me."

14 But he said to him, "Friend, who set me to be a judge or arbitrator over you?"

15 And he said to them, "Take care! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; for one's life does not consist in the abundance of possessions."

16 Then he told them a parable: "The land of a rich man produced abundantly.

17 And he thought to himself, "What should I do, for I have no place to store my crops?'

18 Then he said, "I will do this: I will pull down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.

19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.'

20 But God said to him, "You fool! This very night your life is being demanded of you. And the things you have prepared, whose will they be?'

21 So it is with those who store up treasures for themselves but are not rich toward God."

Scripture: Hosea 11:1-11


1 When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son.

2 The more I called them, the more they went from me; they kept sacrificing to the Baals, and offering incense to idols.

3 Yet it was I who taught Ephraim to walk, I took them up in my arms; but they did not know that I healed them.

4 I led them with cords of human kindness, with bands of love. I was to them like those who lift infants to their cheeks. I bent down to them and fed them.

5 They shall return to the land of Egypt, and Assyria shall be their king, because they have refused to return to me.

6 The sword rages in their cities, it consumes their oracle-priests, and devours because of their schemes.

7 My people are bent on turning away from me. To the Most High they call, but he does not raise them up at all.

8 How can I give you up, Ephraim? How can I hand you over, O Israel? How can I make you like Admah? How can I treat you like Zeboiim? My heart recoils within me; my compassion grows warm and tender.

9 I will not execute my fierce anger; I will not again destroy Ephraim; for I am God and no mortal, the Holy One in your midst, and I will not come in wrath.

10 They shall go after the Lord, who roars like a lion; when he roars, his children shall come trembling from the west.

11 They shall come trembling like birds from Egypt, and like doves from the land of Assyria; and I will return them to their homes, says the Lord.
