The Gospel Notes for the Seventeenth Sunday after Trinity from the Lutheran Service Book’s One-Year Lectionary is now available. You may download the Color PDF, the Black and White PDF, the Bi-Fold Color PDF, the Bi-Fold Black and White PDF, the Legal Half-Page PDF, or the Legal Black and White PDF.
The bi-fold version is a “booklet form” that folds and inserts nicely inside a standard bulletin. The standard version can be printed double-sided on a 8½ x 11″ sheet, and folded for distribution through bulletins, or put on the narthex table for distribution.
The Legal Half-Page is designed for those parishes who already have the readings in their bulletins, this lets you print these notes on a legal (8½ x 14″) sheet, cut it in half, and insert it in your bulletins. It removes the left column from the other formats, and makes it so one double-sided sheet can be inserted.
Additional one-year lectionary Gospel Notes can be found here. If you would like to receive an email each week, please fill out the registration form here. This educational resource is provided by Steadfast in the Parish.
The Seventeenth Sunday after Trinity
by: Rev. Marcus Baikie
Collect of the Day:

Psalm 119:1-2, 5-6 (antiphon: Psalm 119:137, 124)
— Deal with Your servant according to Your steadfast love, and teach me Your statutes.
Psalm 2 (antiphon: v. 11) — The Lord said to Me, “You are my Son; today I have begotten You.”
Old Testament Reading:
