First Reading
Matthew 14:13-21
13  When Jesus heard what had happened, he withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place. Hearing of this, the crowds followed him on foot from the towns.
14  When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.
15  As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, "This is a remote place, and it's already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food."
16  Jesus replied, "They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat."
17  We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish, they answered.
18  Bring them here to me, he said.
19  And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people.
20  They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over.
21  The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.

Sermon Scripture Reading
Romans 9:1-13
1  I speak the truth in Christ--I am not lying, my conscience confirms it in the Holy Spirit--
2  I have great sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart.
3  For I could wish that I myself were cursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, those of my own race,
4  the people of Israel. Theirs is the adoption as sons; theirs the divine glory, the covenants, the receiving of the law, the temple worship and the promises.
5  Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of Christ, who is God over all, forever praised! Amen.
6  It is not as though God's word had failed. For not all who are descended from Israel are Israel.
7  Nor because they are his descendants are they all Abraham's children. On the contrary, "It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned."
8  In other words, it is not the natural children who are God's children, but it is the children of the promise who are regarded as Abraham's offspring.
9  For this was how the promise was stated: "At the appointed time I will return, and Sarah will have a son."
10  Not only that, but Rebekah's children had one and the same father, our father Isaac.
11  Yet, before the twins were born or had done anything good or bad--in order that God's purpose in election might stand:
12  not by works but by him who calls--she was told, "The older will serve the younger."
13  Just as it is written: "Jacob I loved, but Esau I hated."

Sermon

Offering
"Because He Lives"

In Whom Do We Believe? The Apostles' Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.  And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried.  He descended into hell.  The third day he rose again from the dead.  He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty.  From thence he will come to judge the living and the dead.  I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.  Amen.

The Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever.  Amen.
