Solomon leads all Israel in worship, gathering the leaders of the people, the elders, priests and heads of the tribes to watch as the ark of the covenant makes its way into the most holy place of the Temple.

Smoke fills the room as the glory of God fills the room. All eyes are upon Solomon as he lifts his hands toward heaven in prayer. The leaders knew his words would bring a blessing.  How lovely, indeed, are the dwelling places of the Lord.

Cannibalism?
by David O. Bales
John 6:56-69


“What’s with Rufus?” Longinus asked. “Makes sense he wants to dash to the village every moment he’s off duty, but when I ask him if he wants to go trolling the streets with me, he says ‘no.’ He always used to.”

“You have the words of eternal life.” (v. 68b)

Good morning girls and boys,

Welcome. It's awesome to talk to you this morning. How are you? (children respond)

I have a question for you. Does your teacher ever teach something that is hard to understand? Are you sometimes puzzled or bewildered by something your teacher said?

Have you ever wondered about hard things like what electricity is and how it works? Or gravity? Or the universe? Or algebra? (children answer)

The Village Shepherd

Janice B. Scott

This is a story which tries to explain how Jesus can be the Holy One (God) and yet is regarded as God's son.

Call to Worship:

If we absorb Jesus, we live in him just as he lives in God. In our worship today, let us join together to explore what it means to absorb Jesus.


Invitation to Confession:

Jesus, sometimes we find it difficult to understand the Bible.
Lord, have mercy.
