God Pause for Saturday, 8/9/2014

Luther Seminary God Pause

Saturday, 8/9/2014 Hymn: "God of Justice," by Tim Hughes

The words from Micah 6:8 are painted on one of the walls inside The Bridge coffee house where I serve. They are there to remind us of the mission before us that God calls us into. As I think about the lectionary texts this week, this is what God calls us out onto the water to do and be. God calls us to actively participate in God's saving work in the world; to publically announce the saving grace of this God who loved us so much that God sent Jesus, God's son to rescue us and all the world.

God of justice, may we all be moved by your son Jesus' invitation into action to go and act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with you. Call us out of the boat to be your rescuing servants in this broken world. Amen.

Elizabeth Reinking Pastor and Mission Developer, The Bridge Market and Faith Community, St. Charles, Mo. Master of Divinity, 2013
