The Gospel Notes for the Nineteenth 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 Nineteenth Sunday after Trinity
by: Rev. Marcus Baikie
Collect of the Day:
Almighty and merciful God, of Your bountiful goodness keep from us all things that may hurt us that we, being ready in both body and soul, may cheerfully accomplish whatever You would have us do; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Psalm 78:1-3, 4b (antiphon: Psalm 35:3b; 34:17a, 6b; 48:14a) — When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears.
Psalm 84 (antiphon: v. 8) — How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts!
Old Testament Reading:
Genesis 28:10-17 — Jacob dreams of a ladder from earth to heaven
Psalm 141:1-2 — Let my prayer be counted as incense before you, and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice!
Ephesians 4:22-28 — Put off your old self and put on the new self
Psalm 98:1a — Alleluia. Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things! Alleluia!
