Seventh Sunday after Pentecost

Watchword for the week — Surely God’s salvation is at hand for those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land. Psalm 85:9

Sunday, July 11 — Amos 7:7-15; Psalm 85:8-13
Ephesians 1:3-14; Mark 6:14-29

My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples. Isaiah 56:7

In that renewal there is no longer Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and free; but Christ is all and in all! Colossians 3:11

Forgiving God, we find it easy to build walls between us and those whom we perceive to be different. Help us to see that, in Christ, all people are your children. We pray as we hope to live, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
