PRAYER  OF THE DAY   (Pray together)     Bountiful God, you gather your people into your realm, and you promise us food from your tree of life.

Scripture Reading

Acts 16:9-15

A vision compels Paul to move his ministry into Greece. There he meets Lydia, an important person in the business community, whose heart has been opened by God to receive the gospel. Her conversion and baptism provide the impetus for the founding of the church at Philippi.

Psalm 148

Let the nations be glad and sing for joy. (Ps. 67:4)

Scripture Reading

Revelation 21:10, 22- -22:5

John’s vision of a new Jerusalem coming out of heaven provides continuity with God’s past actions. Yet in this new city, God’s presence replaces the temple, and the glory of God and the Lamb supplant sun and moon.

Gospel

John 5:1-9

As Jesus talks of returning to the Father, he promises to send the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, who will teach Jesus’ followers and remind them of all that Jesus taught. Even more, those in whom God makes a home will experience a peace that overcomes fear.
