      God in Community, Holy in One
      Proverbs 8:1–4,22–31  John 16:12–15



      This is the Word of God for the people of God:

      Proverbs 8:1–4,22–31
      Holy Bible, New Revised Standard Version

      The gifts of wisdom
      Does not wisdom call
          and understanding raise her voice?

      2 On the heights, beside the way,
          at the crossroads she takes her stand;

      3 beside the gates in front of the town,
          at the entrance of the portals she cries out:

      4 “To you, O people, I call,
          and my cry is to all who live.

      Wisdom’s part in creation
      22 “The LORD created me at the beginning[a] of his work,[b]
          the first of his acts of long ago.
      23 Ages ago I was set up,
          at the first, before the beginning of the earth.

      24 When there were no depths I was brought forth,
          when there were no springs abounding with water.

      25 Before the mountains had been shaped,
          before the hills, I was brought forth,

      26 when he had not yet made earth and fields[c]
          or the world’s first bits of soil.
      27 When he established the heavens, I was there;
          when he drew a circle on the face of the deep,

      28 when he made firm the skies above,
          when he established the fountains of the deep,

      29 when he assigned to the sea its limit,
          so that the waters might not transgress his command,
      when he marked out the foundations of the earth,

      30 then I was beside him, like a master worker,[d]
      and I was daily his[e] delight,
          playing before him always,

      31 playing in his inhabited world
          and delighting in the human race.

      — This is the Word of the Lord.
      — Thanks be to God.

      This is the Word of God for the people of God:

      John 16:12–15
      Holy Bible, New Revised Standard Version

      12 “I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14 He will glorify me because he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15 All that the Father has is mine. For this reason I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.

      — This is the Word of the Lord.
      — Thanks be to God.
