The text this week is Luke 10:1-24, in which Christ sends out 72 of his followers to prepare the way for his Kingdom message, and receives them back with joy. The worship theme is joy in the Holy Spirit because of his work through Jesus and through us, and the visual theme is rivers flowing, representing the outpouring of the Spirit.

Isaiah 52:7-10 How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” 8The voice of your watchmen—they lift up their voice; together they sing for joy; for eye to eye they see the return of the Lord to Zion. 9Break forth together into singing, you waste places of Jerusalem, for the Lord has comforted his people; he has redeemed Jerusalem. 10The Lord has bared his holy arm before the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.
