our sins of omission and commission. Create in us clean hearts and ready spirits to follow
you, in Christ we pray. Amen.

Sermon “You Give them... How Many?” Rev. Stuart C. Buisch
Creed We trust in God the Holy Spirit, everywhere the giver and renewer of life. The Spirit
justifies us by grace through faith, sets us free to accept ourselves and to love God and neighbor,
and binds us together with all believers in the one body of Christ, the Church. The same spirit
who inspired the prophets and apostles rules our faith and life in Christ through Scripture,
engages us through the Word proclaimed, claims us in the waters of baptism, feeds us with the
bread of life and the cup of salvation, and calls women and men to all ministries of the church.
