Worship Resources May – June 2020
June 7, 2020
Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton
Presiding Bishop – Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
The video is available at YouTube.com/ELCA and Vimeo.com/ELCA. Bishop Eaton will read the gospel appointed for this day prior to the sermon. Local decisions can be made to use the reading on the video or invite another person to read the gospel instead. Links to the written transcript and videos with subtitles are posted in the video description. They can be found in English and Spanish.This is a remarkable opportunity for our Presiding Bishop to do something that has never been done: to preach in most of our congregations on one Sunday. If you can’t use the sermon this Sunday, consider using it another Sunday in June.
ELCA Worship has provided a Service of the Word (PDF/WORD) with appointed readings, corporate prayers of intercession, and hymn and song suggestions. Synods or congregations may adapt and use this resource to produce online worship offerings to surround Bishop Eaton’s sermon.
ELCA Worship will continue to provide “Worship in the Home” via the ELCA Worship blog (blogs.ELCA.org/Worship) for those who make use of these resources for individual/family home devotions each week. On June 7th, “Worship in the Home” will include a link to watch Bishop Eaton’s sermon as part of these home devotions.

The trumpeters and singers joined in unison, as with one voice, to give praise and thanks to the LORD. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, they raised their voices in praise to the LORD and sang: “God is good; God’s love endures forever.”
– 2 Chronicles 5:13
