All are welcome for our live-streamed service this coming Sunday! The service will begin at 9:30 am, following a time of music for preparation.
This Sunday is the fourth Sunday after Pentecost. We’re in “Year B” of the Revised Common Lectionary, which sets out what readings we use each week. This year we’ll hear gospel passages mostly from the gospel of Mark, and the passages from the Hebrew Scriptures focus on David and the kings of Israel and Judah. (The psalm each week reflects on the reading from the Hebrew Scriptures.)
Here’s what Sundays and Seasons has to say about this week’s gospel:
Now is the acceptable time; now is the day of salvation! Now we are in the storm, the boat almost swamped; but Jesus is here now, and when we call him, he will calm the storm. Even the wind and waves listen to him as they would to their creator. We also listen to him and are called to believe in the power of God’s word in him, a power greater than all that we fear.
