Call To Worship (Acts 3:19-21)
One:

Repent, therefore, and turn to God so that your sins may be wiped out,
All:
so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that he may send the Messiah appointed for you, that is, Jesus,
One:
who must remain in heaven until the time of universal restoration that God announced long ago through his holy prophets.

Collect

Gracious Lord, your message saves lives and nations. You promised all nations would be blessed through Abraham! In our worship today we pledge to be your light to all the nations, whether perceived as friend or foe, that as children of Abraham, children of God, we may all be gathered into your family. Amen.

Prayer Of Confession

Today we proclaim that God is merciful and just, intent on the restitution of all things, aiming to reach out for Ninevites, such as ourselves. Why are we always so surprised, Lord, about your boundless mercy? Why do we always assume, God of judgment, that your boundless mercy always includes us? We repent of our idolatries of nationalism, racism, commercialism, consumerism. We proclaim one God, one Lord, one salvation, forever and ever. Amen.

Isaiah 55:1-9
Frank Ramirez
Are you paying attention? Or are you paying attention to the wrong stuff? A voice that sounds a lot like Wisdom as we met her in Proverbs begs us to learn from past experience, so as not to spend money when we can get free stuff. The first generation liberated from Egypt died in the desert because they didn’t learn. And when the people pointed with oohs and ahhs towards current events, Jesus asked them to learn from the past to recognize that some things are not as significant as the eternal choices.

Isaiah 55:1-9

Stan shouted from his room. “What time is it?”

The Village Shepherd

The government has finally woken up to the fact that the health of our children in this country is threatened by their food. For two generations, since World War II, food has become increasingly processed and the era of the fast food meal is well and truly with us.

Karen hates church. She feels it's a place where people are brainwashed. She thinks the people who go to church are weak, looking for a crutch in sermons that tell them how to behave. Karen clearly has an issue with established religion.
