We invite pastors/worship planners to create a worship bulletin using their familiar Service of the Word format in local context along with Bishop Jon’s sermon, suggested hymns (others if desired) and prayer of the day.
Bishop Jon has prepared this sermon without any explicit linkage to the 2019 assembly. That, we hope, might make it possible to use this sermon on a Sunday when your congregation might need it.
It is one of three sermons he will be doing on the three articles of the Apostles’ Creed.
The Gospel lesson this sermon is based on is from Pentecost. This could be read by a reader on a Sunday when this text is not in the lectionary, if it is used at another time.
