Lectionary Resources

August 9 – 10th Sunday after Pentecost

Elijah finds the presence of God not in earthquake, wind, or fire, but in the sound of sheer silence. When the disciples face a great storm on the sea, they cry out with fear. Jesus says: "Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid." Amid the storms of life, we gather to seek the calm presence of Christ that soothes our fears. In comforting words of scripture and in the refreshing bread and cup of the eucharist, God grants us peace and sends us forth to be a sign of God's presence to others. (From Sundays and Seasons)

  • 1 Kings 19:9–18; Romans 10:5–15; Matthew 14:22–33
  • Holy Communion

 

August 16 – 11th Sunday after Pentecost
The Canaanite woman in today’s gospel is a Gentile, an outsider, who is unflinching in her request that Jesus heal her daughter. As Jesus commends her bold faith, how might our church extend its mission to those on the margins of society? In our gathering around word and meal we receive strength to be signs of comfort, healing, and justice for those in need. (From Sundays and Seasons)
  • Isaiah 56:1, 6–8; Romans 11:1–2a, 29–32; Matthew 15: [10–20] 21–28
  • Holy Communion
August 23 – 12th Sunday after Pentecost
Jesus declares that the church will be built on the rock of Peter’s bold confession of faith. God’s word of reconciliation and God’s mercy are keys to the church’s mission. Paul urges us to not be conformed to this world but to offer our bodies as a living sacrifice, using our individual gifts to build up the body of Christ. From the table we go forth to offer our spiritual worship through word and deed. (From Sundays and Seasons)
  • Isaiah 51:1–6; Romans 12:1–8; Matthew 16:13–20
  • Holy Communion
August 30 – 13th Sunday after Pentecost
When Peter doesn’t grasp Jesus’ words about suffering, Jesus tells the disciples they will find their lives in losing them. Such sacrificial love is described by Paul when he urges us to associate with the lowly and not repay evil with evil. In worship we gather as a community that we might offer ourselves for the sake of our suffering world. (From Sundays and Seasons)
  • Jeremiah 15:15–21; Romans 12:9–21; Matthew 16:21–28
  • Holy Communion
