First Reading
Acts 17:1-15
1  When they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a Jewish synagogue.
2  As his custom was, Paul went into the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures,
3  explaining and proving that the Christ had to suffer and rise from the dead. "This Jesus I am proclaiming to you is the Christ," he said.
4  Some of the Jews were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, as did a large number of God- fearing Greeks and not a few prominent women.
5  But the Jews were jealous; so they rounded up some bad characters from the marketplace, formed a mob and started a riot in the city. They rushed to Jason's house in search of Paul and Silas in order to bring them out to the crowd.
6  But when they did not find them, they dragged Jason and some other brothers before the city officials, shouting: "These men who have caused trouble all over the world have now come here,
7  and Jason has welcomed them into his house. They are all defying Caesar's decrees, saying that there is another king, one called Jesus."
8  When they heard this, the crowd and the city officials were thrown into turmoil.
9  Then they made Jason and the others post bond and let them go.
10  As soon as it was night, the brothers sent Paul and Silas away to Berea. On arriving there, they went to the Jewish synagogue.
11  Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.
12  Many of the Jews believed, as did also a number of prominent Greek women and many Greek men.
13  When the Jews in Thessalonica learned that Paul was preaching the word of God at Berea, they went there too, agitating the crowds and stirring them up.
14  The brothers immediately sent Paul to the coast, but Silas and Timothy stayed at Berea.
15  The men who escorted Paul brought him to Athens and then left with instructions for Silas and Timothy to join him as soon as possible.

Sermon Scripture Reading
John 14:1-14
1  "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.
2  In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you.
3  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 
4  You know the way to the place where I am going."
5  Thomas said to him, "Lord, we don't know where you are going, so how can we know the way?"
6  Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
7  If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him." 
8  Philip said, "Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us."
9  Jesus answered: "Don't you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, 'Show us the Father'?
10  Don't you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work.
11  Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves.
12  I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
13  And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father.
14  You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

In Whom Do We Believe? Explanation to the First Article of The Apostles' Creed
I believe that God has made me and all creatures; that he has given me my body and soul, eyes, ears, and all my members, my reason and all my senses, and still takes care of them.  He also gives me clothing and shoes, food and drink, house and home, spouse and children, land, animals, and all I have.  He richly and daily provides me with all that I need to support this body and life.  He defends me against all danger and guards and protects me from all evil.  All this he does only out of fatherly, divine goodness and mercy, without any merit or worthiness in me.  For all this it is my duty to thank and praise, serve and obey him.  This is most certainly true.

Prayers Of The Day

The Lord's Prayer
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever.  Amen.
