SCRIPTURE READING | Matthew 15:32-39
Then Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I have compassion on the crowd because they have been with me now three days and have nothing to eat. And I am unwilling to send them away hungry, lest they faint on the way.” 33 And the disciples said to him, “Where are we to get enough bread in such a desolate place to feed so great a crowd?” 34 And Jesus said to them, “How many loaves do you have?” They said, “Seven, and a few small fish.” 35 And directing the crowd to sit down on the ground, 36 he took the seven loaves and the fish, and having given thanks he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. 37 And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up seven baskets full of the broken pieces left over. 38 Those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children. 39 And after sending away the crowds, he got into the boat and went to the region of Magadan.

CONFESSION & ABSOLUTION | Adapted from the Lutheran Service Book
God of mercy
We confess that we are by our very nature, a sinful people
We sin against you with our thoughts, our words and our actions.
We have sinned against you by not doing the things we know we should do.
We have not loved you with our whole hearts and
We have not loved our neighbors with the love you have called us to.
For the sake of your Son, Jesus Christ, we ask for your mercy.
Forgive us, renew us and lead us so that we can daily walk in your ways
bring glory to you and blessing to our neighbors. Amen
God in his divine mercy
has loved us enough to give His own Son to die and rise for us
And for his sake, God forgives every one of our sins
in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Amen.
GENEROSITY LITURGY | Written by Trinity Grace Church [website]
There is nothing we have
that we have not received;
all we have and are belong to God,
bought with the blood of Jesus.
To spend everything on ourselves,
and to give without sacrifice
is the way of the world
that the Father cannot abide.
But generosity is the way of those
who call Christ their Lord;
who love him with free hearts,
and serve him with renewed minds;
who withstand the delusion of riches
that chokes the word;
whose hearts are in heaven, and not on earth.
We are determined to increase in generosity
until it can be said
that there is no needy person among us.
We are determined to be faithful stewards
of such a little thing as money
that Christ may trust us with true riches.
Above all things, we are determined to be generous
because our Father is generous.
It is the delight of His daughters and sons
to share their Father’s traits,
and to show what He is like to all the world.

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE
Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven;
give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen
