Tenth Sunday after Pentecost

Watchword for the week — Let us run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith. Hebrews 12:2

Sunday, August 18 — Jeremiah 23:23-29; Psalm 82
Hebrews 11:29-12:2; Luke 12:49-56

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act. Psalm 37:5

I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6

Lord, although we too often show doubt or forget to trust in you, you never doubt or lose sight of us. Somehow, you always reveal yourself and draw us back to you. Mend us, imperfect beings. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
