*The Opening Hymn # 7 Joyful, Joyful We Adore Thee
The Scripture Lesson Luke 12: 32-40
“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, like men waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him. It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes.
I tell you the truth, he will dress himself to serve, will have them recline at the table and will come and wait on them. It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the second or third watch of the night. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. You also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”
This is the gospel of Christ.
Thanks be to God.

The Ninth Sunday after Pentecost
People get ready, there a train a coming,
You don’t need no baggage, you just get on board,
All you need is faith, to hear the diesel humming.
Don’t need no ticket, you just thank the Lord.
