For Sunday 21 April 2019

 

As we gather for worship in celebration of the resurrection of our Lord, the acclamation Alleluia, which means, "Praise the Lord" is never far from our lips. In the reading from the prophet we hear God's promise of the new creation, where death and weeping and distress will be no more and we respond, "Alleluia!" St. Paul teaches that Christ':s resurrection is but the first fruits of His victory over death. Because He is risen, all who trust in Him will likewise rise. Alleluia! The angels asked the women, "Why do you seek the living among the dead? . . . . Remember how he told you . . . on the third day [He must] rise. . . . He is not here, but has risen" (Lk. 24:5-7). Alleluia! Christ is risen, and we too will rise! Alleluia!

Our midweek service will again focus on Luther's Small Catechism. Having gone through Section 1 over the past six year's, the Six Chief Parts. this year we turn to Section 3. The Table of duties. In this section Luther has compiled passages of Scripture that reveal what God would have us do with respect to the stations in life into which part he has placed us -- our various vocations. We Look to the Catechism because, as Luther wrote: "[Though I am] a doctor and preacher. . . yet I act as a child who is being taught the catechism. Every morning -- and whenever I have time -- I read and say, word for word, the Ten Comandments, the Creed, the Lord's Prayer, the Palms, and such. I must still read them daily. Yet I cannot master the catechism as I wish" (L.C., Longer Preface, 7).

Sunday April 14 Palm Sunday service at 10:15 am.

Thursday April 18 Maundy Thrusday service at 7:00 pm.

Friday April 19 Good Friday service at 7:00 pm.
