Sunday, June 19, 2022 – The Second Sunday after Pentecost

This Sunday’s texts paint startling pictures of the horrific nature of sin and evil.

The church’s repeated celebration of holy communion counters that tragic reality in a continued showing forth of the death of Jesus until he comes again.

It is a dramatic declaration of “how much God has done for you.”

“O LORD our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!”

Today we celebrate the holy Trinity. Paul writes that through Jesus we have peace with God, whose love pours into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, giving us lasting hope.

We celebrate the gracious One-in-Three, eternal Three-in-One, as we worship in community; as we share water and word, bread and wine; and as we bring God’s love and hope to our neighbors.

Sunday, June 4, 2022 – Day of Pentecost

Sunday, May 29, 2022 – 7th Sunday of Easter

It is possible to hear, in Jesus’ high priestly prayer, a prayer he offered shortly before his death, the petitions of the ascended Christ for his own throughout history—to our day—and beyond.


Jesus prays for us. Jesus prays that our lives will be characterized by a unity of identity with God… that our oneness will be a strong witness – that the world might believe.

 

In holy baptism we become believers in God, have our robes washed in the flood of Christ’s forgiveness, and receive the gift of life forever with all the saints.
