    Genesis 3:6-7 (Inclusive Bible) The woman knew that the tree was enticing to the eye, and now saw that the fruit was god to eat – that it was desirable for the knowledge it could give. So she took some of its fruit and ate it. She gave some also to the man beside her, and he ate it. Romans 8:14-30 (Inclusive Bible) Those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. For the Spirit that God has given you does not enslave you and trap you in fear; instead, through the Spirit God has adopted you as children, and by that Spirit we cry out, “Abba!” God’s Spirit joins with our spirit to declare that we are God’s children. And if we are children, we are heirs as well: heirs of God and coheirs with Christ, sharing in Christ’s suffering and sharing in Christ’s glory. Indeed, I consider the sufferings of the present to be nothing compared with the glory that will be revealed in us. All creation eagerly awaits the revelation of the children of God. Creation was subjected to transience and futility, not of its own accord, but because of the One who subjected it – in the hope that creation itself would be freed from its slavery to corruption and would come to share in the glorious freedom of the children of God. We know that from the beginning until now, all of creation has been groaning in one great act of giving birth. And not only creation, but all of us who possess the firstfruits of the Spirit – we too groan inwardly as we wait for our bodies to be set free. In hope we are saved. But hope is not hope if its object is seen; why does one hope for what one sees? And hoping for what we cannot see means awaiting it with patient endurance. The Spirit, too, comes to help us in our weakness. For we don’t know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit expresses our plea with groanings too deep for words. And God, who knows everything in our hearts, knows perfectly well what the Spirit is saying, because her intercessions for God’s holy people are made according to the mind of God. We know that God makes everything work together for the good of those who love God and have been called according to God’s purpose. They are the ones God chose long ago, predestined to share the image of the Only Begotten, in order that Christ might be the firstborn of many. Those God predestined have likewise been called; those God called have also been justified; and those God justified have, in turn, been glorified.

          Scripture Reading: John 14:15-21, John 15:12-17 (Inclusive Bible) John 14:15-21 “If you love me and obey the command I give you, I will ask the One who sent me to give you another Paraclete, another Helper to be with you always – the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot accept since the world neither sees her or recognizes her; but you can recognize the Spirit because she remains with you and will be within you. I won’t leave you orphaned; I will come back to you. A little while now and the world will see me no more; but you’ll see me; because I live, and you will live as well, On that day you’ll know that I am in God, and you are in me, and I am in you. Those who obey the commandments are the ones who love me, and those who love me will be love by Abba God. I, too, will love them and will reveal myself to them.” John 15:12-17 “This is my commandment: love one another as I have loved you. There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. And you are my friends, if you do what I command you. I no longer speak of you as subordinates because a subordinate doesn’t know a superior’s business. Instead I call you friends, because I have made known to you everything I have learned from Abba God. It was not you who chose me; it was I who chose you to go forth and bear fruit. Your fruit must endure, so that whatever you ask of Abba God in my name God will give you. This command I give you: that you love one another.”

            Deuteronomy 6:1-9 (Inclusive Bible) Here, then, are the commands, statutes and decrees which I will teach you. Obey them, so that you may enter into and occupy the land which YHWH, the God of your ancestors, gives to you. If you, and your children, and their children revere YHWH, your God, all the days of your life, and if you keep the laws and commandments which I lay before you, you will have a long life. Listen then, Israel, and observe carefully what will bring you prosperity and will increase your numbers greatly, as YHWH, the God of your ancestors, has promised, giving to you a land that flows with milk and honey. Hear, O Israel: YHWH, our God, YHWH is One! You are to love YHWH, your God, with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength. Let these words that I command you today be written in your heart. Teach them diligently to your children, and repeat them constantly – when you are at home, when you are walking down a road, when you lie down at night and when you get up in the morning. Tie them on your hand as a reminder; wear them as a circlet on your forehead; write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. * “YHWH” represents the divine name found in the Hebrew text. It represents the divine mystery, and is not pronounced. Instead, we say “God” or some other term of reverence.

              Scripture Reading: Luke 22:47-51 (Inclusive Bible) While Jesus was still speaking, a crowd suddenly appeared with Judas, one of the Twelve, at their head. Judas came over to Jesus to embrace him, but Jesus said, “Judas, are you betraying the Chosen One with a kiss?” Those who were around Jesus, realizing what was going to happen, said, “Rabbi, should we strike them with our swords?” One of them struck the attendant of the high priest, cutting off an ear. But Jesus said, “Stop! No more of this” Then Jesus touched the attendant’s ear and healed it.

                    Scripture Reading: Psalm 46 (Inclusive Bible) God is our refuge and our strength, who from of old has helped us in our distress. Therefore we fear nothing—even if the earth should open up in front of us and mountains plunge into the depths of the sea, even if the earth’s waters rage and foam and the mountains tumble with its heaving. There’s a river whose streams gladden the city of God, the holy dwelling of the Most High. God is in its midst, it will never fall—God will help it at daybreak. Though nations are in turmoil and empires crumble, God’s voice resounds, and it melts the earth. YHWH Sabaoth is with us—our stronghold is the God of Israel! Come, see what YHWH has done—God makes the earth bounteous! God has put an end to war, from one end of the earth to the other, breaking bows, splintering spears, and setting chariots on fire. “Be still, and know that I am God! I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted upon the earth.” YHWH Sabaoth is with us—our stronghold is the God of Israel! * “YHWH” represents the divine name found in the Hebrew text. It represents the divine mystery, and is not pronounced. Instead, we say “God” or some other term of reverence.
