Nineteenth Sunday After Pentecost





























































































































































































FRANKLIN PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

We are a community of believers called by God to live humbly in the spirit of Christ and to act as His voice and hands in our world.

Our ministries and missions emphasize worship, prayer, study, hospitality to others, and care within our congregation.  We are focused especially on the issues of poverty in our community and the world around us through projects and programs aimed at addressing the needs of those who are hungry and without enough clothing or adequate shelter, and those suffering abuse.










 

NINETEENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
  


Julius Caesar Ė Silver Denarius

From http://liturgy.slu.edu/29OrdA101914/main.html accessed 10/14/14

 

  

The distinction is made between what is Godís and what is Caesarís. The decision remains: who shall be served? If it is God, then Godís will shall be done.  If it is Caesar, then Caesar shall reign. Idolatry occurs when the distinction is blurred. When put to the test, Jesus simply asks the question: to whom will allegiance be given?

 

 

                                                                                

We are drawn to worship by a Reality unseen.

The One we call God is beyond human description.

God is more than we can ever imagine.

We sense Godís presence as we meditate.

We gather in awe to bring our songs of praise.

The Creator of all things has given us life.

We are amazed by the wonders around us.

We feel Godís presence as we sing together.

We are summoned by One who is just and merciful.

The Ruler of all worlds expects us to respond.

How amazing that God chooses us as messengers.

We know God is with us as we work for justice.

 

Prayer of the Day

Let us pray.

  

Appear to us here, God of all worlds, for we need your assurance and blessing. We seek the strength to do what is right and just. We long to see you, even though we sense that a god we could see would be only a tiny part of you whose Spirit fills all time and space. We want you to have a face like ours, so we find your face in Jesus, and occasionally in one another. We want to be certain that our decisions and actions are right, but often it is only long afterwards that we realize you were with us. O God, we want to open to all you are revealing to us now. Amen.
