Second Hymn

Readings for May 24th

 

Acts 1: 1 – 11
Theophilus, I wrote about all that Jesus began to do and to teach until the day he was taken up to heaven, after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit to the apostles he had chosen. After his suffering, he presented himself to them and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. 4On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”
Then they gathered around him and asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?”
He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.
They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”
This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

 

Psalm 47
Clap your hands, all you nations;
shout to God with cries of joy.
For the Lord Most High is awesome,
the great King over all the earth.
He subdued nations under us,
peoples under our feet.
He chose our inheritance for us,
the pride of Jacob, whom he loved.
God has ascended amid shouts of joy,
the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets.
Sing praises to God, sing praises;
sing praises to our King, sing praises.
For God is the King of all the earth;
sing to him a psalm of praise.
God reigns over the nations;
God is seated on his holy throne.
The nobles of the nations assemble
as the people of the God of Abraham,
for the kings of the earth belong to God;
he is greatly exalted.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

 

Ephesians 1: 15 – 23
For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who is all in all.
This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

 

Luke 24: 44 – 53
“This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.”
Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things. I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”
When he had led them out to the vicinity of Bethany, he lifted up his hands and blessed them. While he was blessing them, he left them and was taken up into heaven. Then they worshiped him and returned to Jerusalem with great joy. And they stayed continually at the temple, praising God.
This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

Announcements

Message from Rev. Dr. Katherine Burgess, March 20th, 2020. 

 

Last Sunday, as some of you know, we live-streamed our worship via Facebook Live. This Sunday, March 22nd, I will be offering modified worship service from my own home. We decided not to go to into town for a host of reasons. And we decided not to gather as a physical community for pretty much the same reasons. However, there is no reason that we cannot gather as a virtual community, so that is what we will be doing.


At 11 am, on Sunday March 22nd, I invite those of you who feel so inclined to join me right here. I will be going live on St. Andrew's Facebook page. (You might want to "like" that page now, so that it will be easier for you to access it.) I will share it after the fact, so that people will be able to watch it later, if 11 am Central Time is not good for them.


I will post the bulletin for the week on St. Andrew's page as well, with links to the hymns - if I can find them. This will continue each Sunday until we are able to gather in community. And, after that, we have decided that we will livestream our entire service every week.


On Monday, March 23rd, I will live-streaming something daily on St. Andrew's Facebook page. Don't worry about what time, because I will also share this so that you can access it at your leisure. I will also post a daily prayer - either mine or someone else's - on our Facebook page.


Together, with God, we will beat this. We will show that, no matter the attacks on our community, we will stay together and, afterwards, we will be back stronger and more together than ever.


Blessings,

Katherine

his Advent, Katherine will be leading a book study to lead us into the season of Christmas. We will be reading Walter Bruggemann’s book Celebrating Abundance. If you wish to take part in this book study, please see Katherine for information on how to order the book. Our first meeting will be on Sunday, December 1st, immediately following worship.
