Sovereign God, raise your throne in our hearts. Created by you, let us live in your image; created for you, let us act for your glory; redeemed by you, let us give you what is yours, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
15Then the Pharisees went and plotted to entrap [Jesus] in what he said.
16So they sent their disciples to him, along with the Herodians, saying,
Teacher, we know that you are sincere, and teach the way of God in accordance with truth, and show deference to no one; for you do not regard people with partiality.
17Tell us, then, what you think. Is it lawful to pay taxes to the emperor, or not?
18But Jesus, aware of their malice, said,
Why are you putting me to the test, you hypocrites?
19Show me the coin used for the tax. And they brought him a denarius.
20Then he said to them,
Whose head is this, and whose title?
The emperor's. Then he said to them,
Give therefore to the emperor the things that are the emperor's, and to God the things that are God's.
22When they heard this, they were amazed; and they left him and went away.
P: The Gospel of the Lord.
C: Praise to you, O Christ.
P: Lord, in your mercy,
C: hear our prayer.
Recycling the emotion of Hate: Being stuck in hate is an indicator that we are stuck in the state of disempowerment. When people use the word "hate," it is like a sharp knife that cuts them every time they say it. We hate when we don't take the time to consider the other person's story and stance. Pray for the ability to learn to agree or disagree without a childish tantrum and/or a verbally sharp knife. (Creation Justice Ministries)

Our Faith Community Nurse, Marilyn Nelson, has generously donated 175 masks of various sizes (men, women, children) and placed them in the narthex. They are tightly woven cotton fabric masks with soft elastic ear cords and also include a non-woven interfacing for extra protection and wire nose bridge for a better fit. They are freely offered to all members, just restricted to 1 to 2 per family member.
Did you know that memorials do not automatically go to the Charitable Trust? Only by designating the "Charitable Trust" as the recipient is the donation added to the fund for future OSLC needs.
