See All The People

Open Our Eyes

Second Sunday After Pentecost, Year A

How do you count? Does that seem like an odd question? Maybe it is, but it is still valid. We are entering the longest season on the Christian calendar. Some call it Ordinary Time, and some call it the Season after Pentecost.

Primary Themes: Mission/ministry beyond the sanctuary

Week 2: Matthew 9:35-10:8, (9-23), “See All The People”

“Sing the songs of the world, not just the church.” (Derek Weber)
“When we sing, we pray twice.” (African Proverb)

“Come Sunday” UMH 728
“Rule of Life” Worship and Song 3117

PRAYERS OF CONFESSION AND ASSURANCE

Triune God,
We praise you as the God of love and life.
Though Jesus prayed that we would be one,
We confess that we fail to live in unity with each other and with you.
We break our communion through hostile words and unkind actions.
We long for your Spirit to heal us and to correct us.
We long for you to help us experience communion with you and with each other
As we gather around your Word [and table].
Even now, dependent on your grace, we commit ourselves to live more fully in the unity you desire.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord, AMEN.

PRAYER OF INVOCATION (Service of word and Table)

O risen Christ,
You made yourself known to the disciples in the breaking of bread at Emmaus;
Through our sharing in the bread of life in our many Christian communions,
Open our eyes and hands to the needs of all peoples.
Let our hearts burn to share your gifts and help us go forth with one another with bread:
Bread of hope, bread of life, bread of peace. Amen.
