Second Sunday after Pentecost
Watchword for the week — God desires steadfast love and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings. Hosea 6:6
Sunday, June 11 — Hosea 5:15-6:6; Psalm 50:7-15
Romans 4:13-25; Matthew 9:9-13,18-26
Turn back to the Lord whom you have deeply betrayed. Isaiah 31:6
The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. 1 Timothy 1:15
We confess to you, merciful Savior, that our sins are many. Daily we fail to live as your children and to obey your word. Forgive us, we humbly pray, and hear now our shouts of joy for the salvation we receive through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
