The hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him. John 4:23
Collect of the Day
Keep, O Lord, your household the Church in your steadfast faith and love, that through your grace we may proclaim your truth with boldness, and minister your justice with compassion; for the sake of our Savior Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Psalter: Psalm 78:40-72
Lessons: Numbers 11:1-23, Romans 1:16-25, Matthew 17:22-27
Grant us, Lord God, in a new and difficult time, teachers of a like precious faith; men of revealing vision, voices of power melted by pity, fearless to rebuke and faithful to heal. Let it be so, O God, we pray, that the story of Thy love may be told to our hurrying time, wooing it from the semblance of life to homage for truth, beauty, and holiness. In His name. Amen.
