Unison Scripture
6:00 P .M.
1 KINGS 17:7-16 (NRSV)

But a er a while the wadi dried up, because there was no rain in the land. 8Then the word of the LORD came to him, saying, 9Go now to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and live there; for I have commanded a widow there to feed you. 10So he set out and went to Zarephath. When he came to the gate of the town, a widow was there gathering s cks; he called to her and said, Bring me a li le water in a vessel, so that I may drink. 11As she was going to bring it, he called to her and said, Bring me a morsel of bread in your hand. 12But she said, As the LORD your God lives, I have nothing baked, only a handful of meal in a jar, and a li le oil in a jug; I am now gathering a couple of s cks, so that I may go home and prepare it for myself and my son, that we may eat it, and die. 13Elijah said to her, Do not be afraid; go and do as you have said; but rst make me a li le cake of it and bring it to me, and a erwards make something for yourself and your son.14For thus says the LORD the God of Israel: The jar of meal will not be emp ed and the jug of oil will not fail un l the day that the LORD sends rain on the earth. 15She went and did as Elijah said, so that she as well as he and her household ate for many days. 16The jar of meal was not emp ed, neither did the jug of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD that he spoke by Elijah.

2012 Trinity UCC Theme Walking, Talking and Living Our Faith, Ephesians 4 (NLT)
January Ephesians 4:1 Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. February Ephesians 4:2 Always be humble and gentle. Be pa ent with each other, making allowance for each others faults because of your love. March Ephesians 4:3 Make every eort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. April Ephesians 4:4 For there is one body and one Spirit, just as you have been called to one glorious hope for the future. May Ephesians 4:5-6 There is one Lord, one faith, one bap sm, and one God and Father, who is over all and in all and living through all. June Ephesians 4:7 However, he has given each one of us a special gi through the generosity of Christ. July Ephesians 4:11 Now these are the gi s Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. August Ephesians 4:12 Their responsibility is to equip Gods people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. September Ephesians 4:13 This will con nue un l we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of Gods Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ. October Ephesians 4:14 Then we will no longer be immature like children. We wont be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be inuenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth. November Ephesians 4:15-16 Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church. He makes the whole body t together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love. December Ephesians 31-32 Get rid of all bi erness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.
