Moses tells the Israelites that they are called to be a priestly kingdom and a holy people. Jesus sends out the disciples as laborers into the harvest. In baptism we too are anointed for ministry, sharing God’s compassion with our needy world. We go forth from our gathering to proclaim the good news, to heal the sick, and to share our bread with the hungry.
Here are the appointed readings for this Sunday:
The covenant with Israel at Sinai
We are God’s people and the sheep of God’s pasture
While we were sinners, Christ died for us
The sending of the Twelve
Music this week features The Summons, There’s a Wideness in God’s Mercy, and special music from the Hosler family. Thank you Hoslers!

Moses is famously reluctant to follow God’s call. Are you always quick to leap in to a new call? What is keeping you from following this call right now?
