Gather

Confession

Blessed be the holy Trinity, one God, 

who forgives all our sin, whose mercy endures forever.  

Amen.

 Seeking reconciliation with God and our neighbor,

 let us remember the gift of baptism and confess our sin.

 

Silence

 

God of mercy,

we confess that we have sinned against you,

against one another,

and against the earth 

entrusted to our care.

We are worried and distracted 

by many things,

and we fail to love you 

above all else.

We store up treasures 

for ourselves and turn away 

from our neighbors in need. 

Forgive us, that we may live in 

the freedom of your Son,

Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

 

Absolution

Greeting

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God,

and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

And also with you. 

I Saw the Light

I wandered so aimless,

life filled with sin, 

I wouldn’t let my dear Savior in;

then Jesus came like a stranger in the night-

Praise the Lord! 

I saw the light.

I saw the light, 

I saw the light, 

No more darkness, no more night;

Now I’m so happy, no sorrow in sight-

Praise the Lord!

I saw the light.

Just like a blind man

I wandered along, 

Worries and fears I claimed for my own;

Then, like the blind man that God gave back his sight-

Praise the Lord!

I saw the light!

I saw the light, 

I saw the light, 

No more darkness, no more night;

Now I’m so happy, no sorrow in sight-

Praise the Lord!

I saw the light.

I was a fool to wander and stray,

Straight is the gate and narrow the way;

Now I have traded the wrong for the right-

Praise the Lord!

I saw the light.

I saw the light, 

I saw the light, 

No more darkness, no more night;

Now I’m so happy, no sorrow in sight-

Praise the Lord!

I saw the light.

 

Heaven Song

You wrote a letter and You signed Your name 

I read every word of it page by page 

You said that You’d be coming, coming for me soon 

Oh my God I’ll be ready for You

I want to run on greener pastures 

I want to dance on higher hills

I want to drink from sweeter waters 

In the misty morning chill

And my soul is getting restless

For the place where I belong

I can’t wait to join the angels and sing my heaven song

I hear Your voice and I catch my breath 

Well done my child enter in and rest 

Tears of joy roll down my cheek 

It’s beautiful beyond my wildest dreams

I want to run on greener pastures 

I want to dance on higher hills

I want to drink from sweeter waters 

In the misty morning chill

And my soul is getting restless

For the place where I belong

I can’t wait to join the angels and sing my heaven song

I want to run on greener pastures 

I want to dance on higher hills

I want to drink from sweeter waters 

In the misty morning chill

And my soul is getting restless

For the place where I belong

I can’t wait to join the angels and sing my heaven song

Prayer of the Day

Glorious God, your generosity waters the world with goodness, and you cover creation with abundance. Awaken in us a hunger for the food that satisfies both body and spirit, and with this food fill all the starving world; through your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.

Amen.

Word

Reading: Isaiah 55:1-5

Ho, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and you that have no

money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without 

money and without price. Why do you spend your money for that 

which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? 

Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves 

in rich food. Incline your ear, and come to me; listen, so that you 

may live. I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, 

sure love for David. See, I made him a witness to the peoples, a 

leader and commander for the peoples. See, you shall call nations 

that you do not know, and nations that do not know you shall run to 

you, because of the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has 

glorified you.

 The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

 

Gospel Acclamation 

“Alleluia”

            Gospel

The Gospel according to…

Glory to you, O Lord!

 

Gospel: Matthew 14:13-21

Now when Jesus heard this, he withdrew from there in a boat to a deserted place by himself. But when the crowds heard it, they followed him on foot from the towns. When he went ashore, he saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them and cured their sick. When it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a deserted place, and the hour is now late; send the crowds away so that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves.” Jesus said to them, “They need not go away; you give them something to eat.” They replied, “We have nothing here but five loaves and two fish.” And he said, “Bring them here to me.” Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. And all ate and were filled; and they took up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full. And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

This is the Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, O Christ.

Words of Institution

In the night in which he was betrayed,

Our Lord Jesus took bread,

and gave thanks; broke it,

and gave it to his disciples,

saying: Take and eat;

this is my body, given for you.

Do this in remembrance of me.

Again, after supper, he took the cup,

gave thanks, and gave it for all to drink,

saying: This cup

is the new covenant in my blood, 

shed for you and for all people

for the forgiveness of sin.

Do this in remembrance of me.

 

Lord’s Prayer

 Our Father in heaven,

 hallowed be your name,

 your kingdom come,

 your will be done,

 on earth as in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

 Forgive us our sins

 as we forgive those who sin against us.

 Save us from the time of trial

 and deliver us from evil.

For the kingdom, the power,

  and the glory are yours,

now and forever.

Amen.

For everyone born a place at the table,

for everyone born, clean water and bread,

compassion and peace: yes, God will delight when 

we are creators of justice, justice and joy! 

For young and for old. 

A place at the table

A voice to be heard

A part in the song

The hands of a child in hands that are wrinkled

For young and for old the right to belong

and God will delight when we are creators of justice and joy, 

compassion and peace: yes, God will delight when 

we are creators of justice, justice and joy! 

For just and unjust, a place at the table, 

the user the used, with need to forgive, 

in anger, in hurt, a mindset of mercy, 

for just and unjust, a new way to live, 

and God will delight when we are creators of justice and joy, 

compassion and peace: yes, God will delight when

 we are creators of justice, justice and joy! 

For everyone born, a place at the table

to live without fear, and simply to be,

to work, to speak out, to witness and worship,

we are creators of justice, justice and joy!
