October 2018 Post-Pentecost Worship Planning Series

Twentieth Sunday After Pentecost 2018, Year B

Today marks the beginning of a new four-week series. We are taking a deep dive in the mysterious and complicated story of Job, which is neatly condensed into four lectionary readings in the month of October. Challenge your congregation to go beyond the surface of Job and allow themselves to wrestle with a mysterious piece of Scripture.

Offertory Prayer

God of grace and goodness, your blessings in our life have been so abundant that when trials come, we become disoriented. Our needs have so often been met, that when we’re challenged in life, we wonder what’s wrong? Why isn’t the world perfectly aligned to meet our desires? This morning, we give our tithes and offerings, with hope that we might ground ourselves in gratitude for the blessings that we so easily come to take for granted. We pray for eyes to see clearly the bright mountains and the dark valleys, with grateful hearts for both. In Christ, we pray. Amen. [Job 1:1, 2:1-10]
