God Gives the Growth

Somos del Señor

Sixth Sunday after the Epiphany, Year A

Elders in The United Methodist Church submit to the itineracy system, moving from church to church throughout their ministry. Some argue that it is a system no longer sustainable in our culture that needs to be phased out. Perhaps, but one outcome of the system is a visceral understanding of the idea presented in I Corinthians 3 about servants together in fields of the Lord.

Offertory Prayer

God of all creation, the offering we bring to your altar this day is the fruit of our labors; and we want to bring you the best we have. No harvest comes from us alone but starts in your goodness; and many have contributed to every good gift we bring. Working together in your fields, generous God, we pray that our gifts might be used to bless others who hunger for connection with you. We pray in the name of Christ, our savior and redeemer. Amen. (1 Corinthians 3:1-9)

Oraciones para ofrendar

Dios de toda la creación, la ofrenda que traemos a tu altar este día es el fruto de nuestro trabajo; y queremos traerte lo mejor que tenemos. Ninguna cosecha viene de nosotros, sino que comienza en tu bondad; y muchos han contribuido a cada buen regalo que traemos. Acompañándonos unos a otros, Dios generoso, oramos para que nuestros dones puedan ser usados para bendecir a los demás que ahnelan una conexión contigo. Oramos en el nombre de Cristo, nuestro salvador y redentor. Amén. (1 Corintios 3:1-9)
