In this world, vows are often broken, promises are often forgotten, contracts are often not honored, and treaties are often not kept, but promises of God endure forever. Come let us worship the Lord God who is and who was and who is to come, the almighty. Amen.

Scripture Reading

Numbers 6:22-27
The Priestly Benediction
The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying,

Thus you shall bless the Israelites: You shall say to them, 
The Lord bless you and keep you; 
the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; 
the Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.
So they shall put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.
