Sunday, July 12, 2020 – Sixth Sunday after Pentecost

On this 6th Sunday after Pentecost, we are reminded of the power and potency of God’s Word. God’s Word is like rain that waters the earth and brings forth vegetation. It is also like the sower who scatters seed lavishly and indiscriminately.


Our lives are like seeds sown in the earth. Even from what appears to be little, dormant, or dead, God promises an abundant harvest. “My word will not return empty,” God promises.

Whenever and however we gather for worship, God feeds and nourishes our hearts and souls with the Word of life and promise; and then God sends us out into the “fields” of the world to share God’s life-giving, renewing, and life-changing Word… to bear fruit for the kingdom.


“Lord, let our hearts and lives be good soil…open to the seed of your Word.

Scripture Readings:

Isaiah 55:10-13
