Second Sunday after Epiphany

Watchword for the week — How weighty to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! Psalm 139:17

Sunday, January 14, 2024 — 1 Samuel 3:1-10,(11-20); Psalm 139:1-6,13-18
1 Corinthians 6:12-20; John 1:43-51

Thus says the Lord, “Maintain justice, and do what is right, for soon my salvation will come and my deliverance be revealed.” Isaiah 56:1

John would have prevented him, saying, “I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?” But Jesus answered him, “Let it be so now, for it is proper for us in this way to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he consented. Matthew 3:14-15

Lord, we try to do what you ask, but our voices are being drowned out, justice is being ignored, and people are hurting. Strengthen us as we feed, comfort, and advocate for those who are suffering. Amen.
