438 Blest Be the Ties that Bind (v1)

Lay Leader: Tom

 

First Reading: Psalm 1

 1. Happy are those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or take the path that sinners tread, or sit in the seat of scoffers; 2. but their delight is in the law of the Lord,and on his law they meditate day and night. 3. They are like trees planted by streams of water, which yield their fruit in its season, and their leaves do not wither. In all that they do, they prosper. 4. The wicked are not so, but are like chaff that the wind drives away. 5. Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous; 6. for the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked will perish.

 

GOSPEL READING Mark 9:30-37

30. They went on from there and passed through Galilee. He did not want anyone to know it; 31. for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, “The Son of Man is to be betrayed into human hands, and they will kill him, and three days after being killed, he will rise again.” 32. But they did not understand what he was saying and were afraid to ask him.

33. Then they came to Capernaum; and when he was in the house he asked them, “What were you arguing about on the way?” 34. But they were silent, for on the way they had argued with one another who was the greatest. 35. He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, “Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all.” 36. Then he took a little child and put it among them; and taking it in his arms, he said to them, 37. “Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me.”
