Rest and Renewal

8/12/18

Today’s service was led by Interim Pastor David Patterson.

The Message:

 

Prayer of the day:

Gracious God, your blessed Son came down from heaven to be the true bread that gives life to the world. Give us this bread always, that he may live in us and we in him, and that, strengthened by this food, we may live as his body in the world, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.

 

Old Testament Reading:

I Kings 19:4-8

But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a solitary broom tree. He asked that he might die: ‘It is enough; now, O Lord, take away my life, for I am no better than my ancestors.’ Then he lay down under the broom tree and fell asleep. Suddenly an angel touched him and said to him, ‘Get up and eat.’ He looked, and there at his head was a cake baked on hot stones, and a jar of water. He ate and drank, and lay down again. The angel of the Lord came a second time, touched him, and said, ‘Get up and eat, otherwise the journey will be too much for you.’ He got up, and ate and drank; then he went in the strength of that food for forty days and forty nights to Horeb the mount of God.

 

Service Songs:

God, Who Stretched the Spangled Heavens

O Jesus, Joy of Loving Hearts

We Give Thee but Thine Own

Go, My Children, with My Blessing

 

Blessing:

The Lord bless thee, and keep thee. The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee. The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

 

Dismissal:

Go in peace. The Spirit sends us forth to serve.

Response:

Thanks be to God.
