1 Kgs 8:(1, 6, 10-11) 22-30, 41-43 – PS 84Eph 6:10-20John 6:56-69

Intro to the Readings
Our reading from First Kings is Solomon’s prayer as the Temple is dedicated to Yahweh who keeps the covenant and is steadfast in love to Israel – the people of God.
Psalm 84 acclaims the glory of worshipping the Lord God in the Lord’s House – with the Lord’s people in the courts of the Lord.
To the Ephesians the Apostle Paul encourages them to “put on the whole armour of God” so that they may “stand firm.”
From the Saint John’s Gospel we listen as the Lord for the fifth Sunday in a row speaks about the bread of life – the bread of his’ flesh.

Let us listen – let us worship – let us receive – in the Lord’s Holy Temple.
