The scripture reading for Sunday, July 14, was Luke 11:1-13. Rev. Laura Mayo gave the proclamation. 

"The prayer is the beginning, action is what follows. Ask, yes. Then search, find, knock, open, receive, give. The words are not enough. Jesus didn’t just pray “your kingdom come on earth,” he lived it. He brought the kingdom of God to earth with each shared meal, each story, each act of mercy. He prayed, and taught, and lived."

"In the kingdoms of this world, humans are expendable. Need is met with fear, threats, scapegoating, and increased abuse. But in the kingdom of God cries of paid are heard and heeded. Liberation is sought at all cost. God hears and uses us to bring liberation."
