THE GOSPEL

Mark 6:1-6

And many who heard him were astonished.

Who is he?

­­ Is he
merely
son of Mary?
Just a carpenter?

What if this amazed crowd found out that

in the beginning was the Word
and the Word was with God
and the Word was God
and the world came
to be through
 him?

God’s world
does not
know
its
 maker.
Christ, artist,
craft us to know you,
so that we can love you well.
Healer of our hearts, minds and souls,

take us into your
holy body and
blood.


THE FIRST READING

Ezekiel 2:2-5

Whether they heed or resist—for they are a rebellious house—
they shall know that a prophet has been among them.

Again

you send
 your wise ones.
To ripen our souls,
 to warm our cold hearts.

Please,
look beyond our rebellions
and show us how to
be prophets in
our own
time.

THE SECOND READING
2 Corinthians 12:7-10

My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.

Life torments us
and we dissolve like dust.
And when abuse is raging; and
 sleep neglects its job;
and sadness and
hardships
rule,

Christ,

 please gather us close to you.
Wrap us in the comfort
of your love
and

make all our
weakness
grace.
