First Reading
Psalm 146:1-10
1  Praise the LORD. Praise the LORD, O my soul.
2  I will praise the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
3  Do not put your trust in princes, in mortal men, who cannot save.
4  When their spirit departs, they return to the ground; on that very day their plans come to nothing.
5  Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God,
6  the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea, and everything in them-- the LORD, who remains faithful forever.
7  He upholds the cause of the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free,
8  the LORD gives sight to the blind, the LORD lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves the righteous.
9  The LORD watches over the alien and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked.
10  The LORD reigns forever, your God, O Zion, for all generations. Praise the LORD.

Sermon Scripture Reading
Mark 12:38-40
38  As he taught, Jesus said, "Watch out for the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and be greeted in the marketplaces,
39  and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets.
40  They devour widows' houses and for a show make lengthy prayers. Such men will be punished most severely."

Sermon

Offering
"Eternal Father Strong To Save"

In Whom Do We Believe? Explanation to the First Article of The Apostles' Creed
I believe that God has made me and all creatures; that he has given me my body and soul, eyes, ears, and all my members, my reason and all my senses, and still takes care of them.  He also gives me clothing and shoes, food and drink, house and home, spouse and children, land, animals, and all I have.  He richly and daily provides me with all that I need to support this body and life.  He defends me against all danger and guards and protects me from all evil.  All this he does only out of fatherly, divine goodness and mercy, without any merit or worthiness in me.  For all this it is my duty to thank and praise, serve and obey him.  This is most certainly true.

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.
