The Gospel Reading.

[prk_accordion][prk_ac_single title="Mark 8:14-26"]

13 He left the Pharisees and sailed across to the other shore.

14The disciples had forgotten to buy provisions, so they had only one round of flatbread among them. 15Jesus took this moment to warn them.

Jesus: Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod. The disciples didn’t understand what Jesus was talking about and discussed it among themselves.

Some Disciples: 16What?

Other Disciples: He’s saying this because we have run out of bread.

Jesus (overhearing them): 17-19 Why are you focusing on bread? Don’t you see yet? Don’t you understand ? You have eyes— why don’t you see? You have ears— why don’t you hear? Are you so hard-hearted? Don’t you remember when I broke the five rounds of flatbread among the 5,000? Tell Me, how many baskets of scraps were left over?

Disciples: Twelve.

Jesus: 20And how many were left when I fed the 4,000 with seven rounds?

Disciples: Seven.

Jesus: 21And still you don’t understand?

22When they came into Bethsaida , a group brought a blind man to Jesus, and they begged Him to touch the man and heal him. 23So Jesus guided the man out of the village, away from the crowd; and He spat on the man's eyes and touched them.

Jesus: What do you see?

Blind Man (opening his eyes): 24I see people, but they look like trees— walking trees.

25Jesus touched his eyes again; and when the man looked up, he could see everything clearly. 26Jesus sent him away to his house.

Jesus (to the healed man): Don’t go into town yet. [And don’t tell anybody in town what happened here.]

Our poetic Scripture reading of the day.

[prk_accordion][prk_ac_single title="Summery of Lamentations"]

Lamentations 1:1-3

1  Aaghh! Lonely is this city that once bustled with life;

Cheer is empty; like a widow, she is abandoned

and oh, so lonely.

She who was a princess, great among the nations,

has lost everything and been forced to serve as a slave.

2Bawling, she weeps without constraint every night,

cries herself to sleep, bitter tears streaming down her cheeks.

Her former friends ignore her;

there is no one there to share her sorrow;

Companions contend and have betrayed her;

friends have been unfaithful and turned against her as enemies.

3Carried off to a foreign place, Judah is exiled in misery

and debased by affliction and hard labor;

She cannot find rest living among the pagan nations.

She tried to run and hide, but in her distress pursuers have overcome her.

Lamentations 2:17

17Question the Eternal One about what He has done.

He determined— punished according to the term and tenets

He laid down so long ago.

He executed fierce destruction without pity

And made your enemy glad.

He has made them prevail with might.

Lamentations 3 21-26

21Gaining hope,

I remember and wait for this thought:

22How enduring is God’s loyal love;

the Eternal has inexhaustible compassion.

23Here they are, every morning, new!

Your faithfulness, God, is as broad as the day.

24Have courage, for the Eternal is all that I will need.

My soul boasts, “Hope in God; just wait.”

25It is good. The Eternal One is good to those who expect Him,

to those who seek Him wholeheartedly.

26It is good to wait quietly

for the Eternal to make things right again.

 

Lamentations 5 1,15-16,19-21

1Remember, Eternal One; don’t forget what happened.

Just look at how we are demeaned, disgraced.

15The joy from our hearts is gone, utterly gone.

Our once-dancing feet now plod along mournfully.

16The wreath that crowned our head has slipped and fallen; now it’s crushed.

O how we’ve sinned! Pity us for the punishment we brought on ourselves.

19But You, Eternal One, despite all this,

You will abide and rule forever, from generation to generation.

20Why, then, have You completely forgotten about us?

 Why have You turned Your back on us through so many dark days?

21We are so sorry and have suffered for it.

Eternal One, take us back again,

That we may be restored to You and You to us,

just as it used to be.

Ezekiel Received his Vision of Orders

[prk_accordion][prk_ac_single title="Ezekiel Chapter 1"]

3the word of the Lord came to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, by the Kebar River in the land of the Babylonians.There the hand of the Lord was on him.
4I looked, and I saw a windstorm coming out of the north—an immense cloud with flashing lightning and surrounded by brilliant light. The center of the fire looked like glowing metal, 5and in the fire was what looked like four living creatures. In appearance their form was human, 6but each of them had four faces and four wings.7Their legs were straight; their feet were like those of a calf and gleamed like burnished bronze. 8Under their wings on their four sides they had human hands. All four of them had faces and wings, 9and the wings of one touched the wings of another. Each one went straight ahead; they did not turn as they moved.
10Their faces looked like this: Each of the four had the face of a human being, and on the right side each had the face of a lion, and on the left the face of an ox; each also had the face of an eagle. ..........

27I saw that from what appeared to be his waist up he looked like glowing metal, as if full of fire, and that from there down he looked like fire; and brilliant light surrounded him. 28Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord. When I saw it, I fell facedown, and I heard the voice of one speaking.

The Valley of Dry Bones

[info_box]

Ezekiel 37

1The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. 2He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. 3He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”
I said, “Sovereign Lord, you alone know.”
4Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord!
5This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. 6I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’ ”
7So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone. 8I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.
9Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lordsays: Come, breath, from the four winds and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’ ” 10So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army.
11Then he said to me: “Son of man, these bones are the people of Israel. They say, ‘Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.’12Therefore prophesy and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: My people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel. 13Then you, my people, will know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves and bring you up from them.14I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the Lord have spoken, and I have done it, declares the Lord.’ ”
