Responding to Evil by Embodying God’s Love

Good Morning!

Welcome to your Sunday morning worship from St. George’s.

I have some suggested hymns or a song you can sing along with before and/or after if you choose. 

A traditional hymn, “The God Abraham Praise”

The reading for this Sunday is the Feeding of the Five Thousand, Matthew 14:13-21, but I do talk about the first 12 verses of Chapter 14 as well. (You are welcome to read those first 12 verses if you wish.)

Matthew 14:13-21

Now when Jesus heard this, he withdrew from there in a boat to a deserted place by himself. But when the crowds heard it, they followed him on foot from the towns. When he went ashore, he saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them and cured their sick. When it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a deserted place, and the hour is now late; send the crowds away so that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves.” Jesus said to them, “They need not go away; you give them something to eat.” They replied, “We have nothing here but five loaves and two fish.” And he said, “Bring them here to me.” Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. And all ate and were filled; and they took up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full. And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children.1

Here is your Sunday prayers and Message.

And here are two last musical pieces, one traditional and one contemporary. The traditional hymn is “Love Divine, All Loves Excelling”

And the contemporary song is “The Heart of Worship”

I hope you have a blessed week and find an opportunity to see God’s love at work in your life each day.

Be Well and God Bless!


The Rev’d Canon Rob Park
