The Collect/Prayer of the Day
O Almighty God, you reach out to every land and call us to your kingdom. As you gather people from near and far, let us also be counted among your servants; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Joshua 24:1-2, 14-18; Ephesians 6:10-20; John 6:55-69
The words of Jesus are Spirit and Life. The words in which he spoke of nourishing the Church with himself are the very words of eternal life. They occasion choice and judgment, and confession of faith. The word that proclaims that his death is the source of life and nourishment and hope for the world is still the only thing the Church really has. It is the word that enables life!
