Gospel Reading of Mark 4 : 26 - 34 (NRSV)
THE PARABLE OF THE GROWING SEED
26 He also said, “The kingdom of God is as if someone would scatter seed on the ground, 27 and would sleep and rise night and day, and the seed would sprout and grow, he does not know how. 28 The earth produces of itself, first the stalk, then the head, then the full grain in the head. 29 But when the grain is ripe, at once he goes in with his sickle, because the harvest has come.”
THE PARABLE OF THE MUSTARD SEED
30 He also said, “With what can we compare the kingdom of God, or what parable will we use for it? 31 It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth; 32 yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in its shade.”
THE USE OF PARABLES
33 With many such parables he spoke the word to them, as they were able to hear it; 34 he did not speak to them except in parables, but he explained everything in private to his disciples.

THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, 
hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, 
thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. 
Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses, 
as we forgive those who trespass against us; 
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. 
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, 
forever and ever. 
Amen.
