WELCOMES YOU!!

 

 

THE FOURTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

20 JUNE 2021

Now is the acceptable time; now is the day of salvation!  Now we are in the storm, the boat almost swamped; but Jesus is here now, and when we call him, he will calm the storm.  Even the wind and waves listen to him as they would to their creator.  We also listen to him and are called to believe in the power of God’s word in him, a power greater than all that we fear.

First Reading: Job 38:1-11

At the end of the book of Job, after Job and his companions have argued about the cause of the great suffering Job endures, God finally speaks.  These verses begin that speech, which is a grand vision of creation, describing God’s ordering of the cosmos and inviting Job to marvel at its beauty.

Psalm: Psalm 107:1-3, 23-32

You stilled the storm and silenced the waves of the sea. (Ps. 107:29)

Second Reading: 2 Corinthians 6:1-13

Paul and his fellow workers experience great hardships and even rejection while carrying out their missionary work.  Nevertheless, Paul continuously proclaims that God has not rejected us but is graciously working for our salvation.

Gospel: Mark 4:35-41

Jesus’ calming of the storm on the sea reveals his power over evil, since the sea represents evil and chaos.  The boat on the sea is a symbol of the church and invites us to trust God amid life’s turbulence.
