Sixth Sunday after Pentecost

Lectionary 13 C 2016 Slide 1 PresentationIntroduction

We have no good apart from God. That makes our Lord's call to follow him an invitation to freedom.

This is freedom to revel in the Spirit's fruits: love, joy, peace, patience, and the like. This is the path of life.

Prayer of the Day

Sovereign God, ruler of all hearts, you call us to obey you, and you favor us with true freedom. Keep us faithful to the ways of your Son, that, leaving behind all that hinders us, we may steadfastly follow your paths, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
