First Sunday after Christmas
Watchword for the week — Let them praise the name of the Lord, for his name alone is exalted; his glory is above earth and heaven. Psalm 148:13
Sunday, December 27—1 Samuel 2:18–20, 26; Psalm 148
Colossians 3:12–17; Luke 2:41–52
The Lord said to Moses, “Who gives speech to mortals? Is it not I, the Lord?” Exodus 4:11
You did not choose me but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit. John 15:16
Who, us, Lord? You chose us? But we are too small, too old, too young, too poor, too busy to heed your call. Forgive our excuses and fill us, instead, with your Spirit of unselfish commitment and action so that we bear fruit for your kingdom. Amen.
