The fifth Sunday after Epiphany continues to highlight unlikely instruments and circumstances appointed to
reveal God’s glory. “Who will go for us?” God asks. A person of unclean lips, a former persecutor of the
church of God, and three fishermen who couldn’t catch a thing. More surprising still, perhaps, is that we are
also called.

All responses marked in bold are said by the whole congregation
The + indicates the congregation stands as they are able.
Holy Communion at Zion – We practice an open table of Holy Communion for all of the baptized body of
Christ. All who believe in Christ as Lord and Savior are welcome to celebrate this feast with us regardless of
age or denominational affiliation.




                                                        ‡ GATHERING ‡
                                       The Holy Spirit calls us together as the people of God

All may make the sign of the cross, the sign that is marked at baptism, as the presiding minister begins.
Blessed be the holy Trinity, one God, who creates us, redeems us, and calls us by name.

Let us confess our sin in the presence of God and of one another.
Silence is kept for reflection.

Most merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against you and your beloved children. We have turned our faces away
from your glory when it did not appear as we expected. We have rejected your word when it made us
confront ourselves. We have failed to show hospitality to those you called us to welcome. Accept our
repentance for the things we have done and the things we have left undone. For the sake of Jesus Christ,
have mercy on us. Forgive us and lead us, that we may bathe in the glory of your Son born among us,
and reflect your love for all creation. Amen.

Rejoice in this good news: In Christ Jesus, your sins are forgiven. You are descendants of the Most High,
adopted into the household of Christ, and inheritors of eternal life. Live as freed and forgiven children of God.

                                                            ‡ WORD ‡
                                    God speaks to us in scripture reading, preaching, and song

FIRST READING: Isaiah 6:1-8
Through a vision in the temple, the eighth-century prophet Isaiah is called by God to announce judgment
against Israel. Aware of his sinfulness and shortcomings, Isaiah is initially hesitant. But when God calls,
Isaiah responds, “Here am I; send me!”
In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lofty; and the hem of his robe
filled the temple. Seraphs were in attendance above him; each had six wings: with two they covered their
faces, and with two they covered their feet, and with two they flew. And one called to another and said:
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory.” The pivots on the thresholds shook
at the voices of those who called, and the house filled with smoke. And I said: “Woe is me! I am lost, for I am
a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips; yet my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of
hosts!” Then one of the seraphs flew to me, holding a live coal that had been taken from the altar with a pair of
tongs. The seraph touched my mouth with it and said: “Now that this has touched your lips, your guilt has
departed and your sin is blotted out.” Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who
will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I; send me!” The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

PSALM : Psalm 138
The psalm is read responsively by whole verse.
I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing your praise;
I bow down towards your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your
for you have exalted your name and your word above everything.
On the day I called, you answered me, you increased my strength of soul.
All the kings of the earth shall praise you, O Lord, for they have heard the words of your mouth.
They shall sing of the ways of the Lord, for great is the glory of the Lord.
For though the Lord is high, he regards the lowly; but the haughty he perceives from far away.
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve me against the wrath of my enemies;
you stretch out your hand, and your right hand delivers me.
The Lord will fulfil his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake
the work of your hands.

Paul delivers in a nutshell the story of the gospel that was given to him. In the lineage of the Christian faith,
we have received the good news of God’s love from generations of believers before us, and we continue to tell
this story to the world.
Now I would remind you, brothers and sisters, of the good news that I proclaimed to you, which you in turn
received, in which also you stand, through which also you are being saved, if you hold firmly to the message
that I proclaimed to you—unless you have come to believe in vain. For I handed on to you as of first
importance what I in turn had received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, and that
he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures, and that he appeared
to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers and sisters at one time,
most of whom are still alive, though some have died. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last
of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me. For I am the least of the apostles, unfit to be called an
apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward
me has not been in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them—though it was not I, but the grace
of God that is with me. Whether then it was I or they, so we proclaim and so you have come to believe. The
Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

Alleluia, Lord to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Alleluia!

The holy gospel according to Luke.                                      .
Glory to you, O Lord.

+ GOSPEL: Luke 5:1-11
Jesus’ teaching of God’s word has begun to draw great crowds. For Simon, James, and John, Jesus’ teaching
inspires hospitality, then obedience, and then risk. After Jesus’ creative power is revealed, fear and amaze-
ment leads these three fishermen to leave everything behind to become apostles.
Once while Jesus was standing beside the lake of Gennesaret, and the crowd was pressing in on him to hear the
word of God, he saw two boats there at the shore of the lake; the fishermen had gone out of them and were
washing their nets. He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little
way from the shore. Then he sat down and taught the crowds from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he
said to Simon, “Put out into the deep water and let down your nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we
have worked all night long but have caught nothing. Yet if you say so, I will let down the nets.” When they
had done this, they caught so many fish that their nets were beginning to break. So they signaled their partners
in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both boats, so that they began to sink. But
when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Go away from me, Lord, for I am a sinful
man!” For he and all who were with him were amazed at the catch of fish that they had taken; and so also were
James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. Then Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid;
from now on you will be catching people.” When they had brought their boats to shore, they left everything
and followed him. This is the Gospel of our Lord.
Praise to you, O Christ.

HYMN OF THE DAY                                    You Have Come Down to the Lakeshore   ELW 817

Reprinted with permission under ONE LICENSE #A-739503. All rights reserved.
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from
      God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the
      Father; through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from
      heaven, was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary and became truly human. For our
      sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day
      he rose again in accordance with the scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the
      right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his
      kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who
      with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.
      We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church. We acknowledge one baptism for the
      forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.

The prayers of intercession are prepared locally and led by the assisting minister as we pray for the Church,
those in need, and all of God’s creation.
The Spirit of the Lord is poured out upon us in abundance; so we are bold to pray for the church, the world,
and all that God has made.
Intercessory petitions
The congregation responds to each petition with:
God of grace,
hear our prayer.
The prayers conclude with the collect:
Since we have such great hope in your promises, O God, we lift these and all of our prayers to you in
confidence and faith; through Jesus Christ our Savior.

trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom,
