INVOCATION AND LORD'S PRAYER Pastor Katie Hambrick 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 debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
SCRIPTURE READING Matthew 22:34-40 Lydia Martinez When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” He said to him, “’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

MOMENT OF REFLECTION
BENEDICTION “May the Lord bless you and keep you; May the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. May God give you the grace not to sell yourself short; grace to risk something big for something good, grace to remember that the world is now too dangerous for anything but truth, and too small for anything but love.” Amen. — H. Stephen Shoemaker
