Holy Eucharist, Rite II
Our Old Testament reading continues the narrative of King David. The prophet Nathan comes to David to urge him to create a dwelling place for the Divine Name, a precursor to Solomon's Temple a generation later.
The Epistle to the Ephesians makes this more personal, declaring that the Church and its members are the dwelling place of God.
Our Gospel reading from Mark continues Jesus' teachings and healings in Galilee.
