Bulletin for Sunday, August 28
1 By this time a lot of men and women of doubtful reputation were hanging around Jesus, listening intently. 2 This made the Pharisees and teachers of religious law complain that he was associating with such sinful people—even eating with them!
3 So Jesus told them this story: 4 “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and one of them gets lost, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others in the wilderness and go to search for the one that is lost until he finds it? 5 And when he has found it, he will joyfully carry it home on his shoulders. 6 When he arrives, he will call together his friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’ 7 In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.”
Leader: The Word of the Lord.
Ekklesia: Thanks be to God.
