Brianne Davis, Liturgist

It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High; to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night, to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre. The righteous flourish like the palm tree, and grow like a cedar in Lebanon. They are planted in the house of the Lord; they flourish in the courts of our God. In old age they still produce fruit; They are always green and full of sap, showing that the Lord is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him. (Psalm 92)


Ezekiel 17:22-24 NIV; NIV Pew Bible Page 1308

* OPENING PRAYER L: Let us join together in prayer.

Mighty God, to you belong the mysteries of the universe. You transform shepherds into kings, the smallest seeds into magnificent trees, and hardened hearts into loving ones. Bless us with your life-giving Spirit, re-create us in your image, and shape us to your purposes, through Jesus Christ. Amen.

“Thou Art Worthy”

OLD TESTAMENT LESSON Ezekiel 17:22-24 NIV; NIV Pew Bible Page 1308

“ ‘I the Lord have spoken, and I will do it.’” This is the word of the Lord.

“ ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I myself will take a shoot from the very top of a cedar and plant it; I will break off a tender sprig from its topmost shoots and plant it on a high and lofty mountain. On the mountain heights of Israel I will plant it; it will produce branches and bear fruit and become a splendid cedar. Birds of every kind will nest in it; they will find shelter in the shade of its branches. All the trees of the field will know that I the Lord bring down the tall tree and make the low tree grow tall. I dry up the green tree and make the dry tree flourish.

Thanks be to God.

GOSPEL LESSON Mark 4:26-34 NIV; NIV Pew Bible Page 1558

He also said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.” Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what

parable shall we use to describe it? It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest seed you plant in the ground. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds of the air can perch in its shade.” With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand. He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything. This is the word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.

Words of Institution Luke 22:14-20

When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table. And he said to them, “I have

This is the Lord’s Table and Christ invites you to share this meal of grace. Christ

eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it finds fulfillment in the kingdom of God.” After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, “Take this and divide it among you. For I tell you I

recognizes you and looks upon you with favor. Christ

will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.” And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it,

befriends you and wants you within his circle. Count yourself among Christ’s disciples by partaking in this feast of fellowship.

and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.
