Third Sunday after Pentecost

Watchword for the week — The Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. Psalm 100:5

Sunday, June 18 — Exodus 19:2-8a; Psalm 100
Romans 5:1-8; Matthew 9:35-10:8,(9-23)

The heavens are yours, the earth also is yours; the world and all that is in it—you have founded them. The north and the south—you created them. Psalm 89:11-12

All things have been created through Christ and for him. He himself is before all things, and in him all things hold together. Colossians 1:16-17

Creator God, sometimes we forget that all things are made by you, and that we need to care for it as a precious gift. Show us how to honor and care for your world; empower us to act for the good of all. May we follow your lead and love your creation as much as you do. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
