Pentecost 19a - conclusion

This isn’t a proper conclusion to the Pentecost 19a texts but I wanted to promote my new blog Confessing the Lectionary. For those of you who don’t worship at Calvary I’ve been using lectionary based confessions for our 9:30 service that I wrote about ten years and decided a couple weeks ago to write new ones to go along with the RCL put them in a blog just in case someone else might like to use them. We use them as a part of our entrance rite by singing a chorus during the procession, this week it’s “I Love You Lord” then reciting the confession from the altar and then singing the chorus again. I post them early in the week. Feel free to cut and paste!

L              The Lord said to Moses: Speak to all the congregation of the people of Israel and say to them: You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy. You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself (Leviticus 19:2, 18) Let us confess the ways we fail to reflect the image of God.

Silence for confession and reflection

L              O Lord

C             Keep us from walking in the counsel of the wicked and sitting in the seats of the scornful. May we delight in your law and remember your teaching! (Psalm 1:1-2)

L              The righteous are like trees planted by streams of water bearing fruit in due season, with leaves that do not wither; everything they do shall prosper for the LORD knows the way of the righteous. (Psalm 1:3, 6)
