Follow Me (8/30)
08/30/20 • 12 min
The prophet Jeremiah speaks of the incurable wound of his suffering yet finds in God’s words the delight of his heart. When Peter doesn’t grasp Jesus’ words about suffering, Jesus tells the disciples they will find their lives in losing them. Such sacrificial love is described by Paul when he urges us to associate with the lowly and not repay evil with evil. In worship we gather as a community that we might offer ourselves for the sake of our suffering world.
Scripture Readings: Matthew 16:21-28; Jeremiah 15:15-21; Psalm 26:1-8
Your LIFE is an Offering (8/23)
08/23/20 • 11 min
Jesus declares that the church will be built on the rock of Peter’s bold confession of faith. God’s word of reconciliation and God’s mercy are keys to the church’s mission. Paul urges us to not be conformed to this world but to offer our bodies as a living sacrifice, using our individual gifts to build up the body of Christ. From the table we go forth to offer our spiritual worship through word and deed.
Scripture Readings: Matthew 16:13-20; Romans 12:1-8; Psalm 138
Even Mick Gets Pizza (8/16)
08/16/20 • 10 min
In Isaiah we hear that God’s house shall be a house of prayer for all people and that God will gather the outcasts of Israel. The Canaanite woman in today’s gospel is a Gentile, an outsider, who is unflinching in her request that Jesus heal her daughter. As Jesus commends her bold faith, how might our church extend its mission to those on the margins of society? In our gathering around word and meal we receive strength to be signs of comfort, healing, and justice for those in need.
Scripture Readings: Matthew 15:10-28; Isaiah 56:1, 6-8; Psalm 145:8-9, 14-21
Take COURAGE (8/9)
08/09/20 • 11 min
In the Romans text we are reminded to place our trust in God. God hears us. We are not alone. In Matthew, when the disciples face a great storm on the sea, they cry out with fear. Jesus says: “Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid.” Amid the storms of life, we gather to seek the calm presence of Christ that soothes our fears. In comforting words of scripture and in the refreshing bread and cup of the eucharist, God grants us peace and sends us forth to be a sign of God’s presence to others. Scripture Readings: Matthew 14:22-33; Romans 10:5-15; Psalm 85:8-13
You Feed Them (8/2)
08/02/20 • 9 min
In today’s first reading God invites all who are hungry or thirsty to receive food and drink without cost. Jesus feeds the hungry multitude and reveals the abundance of God. At the eucharistic table we remember all who are hungry or poor in our world today. As we share the bread of life, we are sent forth to give ourselves away as bread for the hungry. Scripture Readings: Matthew 14:13-21; Isaiah 55:1-5; Psalm 145:8-9, 14-21
Who Does God Favor? (7/26)
07/26/20 • 9 min
Merry Christmas...in July! Welcome to worship at All Saints Lutheran Church. Today we gather in this unusual time to hear again the promises of God fulfilled in the coming of the Christ Child. Join our festive worship as we sing carols, hear the story of Jesus’ birth, and lift our prayers of hope to God, whose promises never fail.
Scripture Readings: Luke 2:[1-7], 8-20, 25-30; Isaiah 62:6-12; Psalm 97
Justice and Mercy (7/19)
07/19/20 • 14 min
It is an age-old question: why is there evil in the world? In the parable of the wheat and the weeds Jesus suggests that both grow together until the harvest. With Paul, we long for the day that all creation will be set free from bondage and suffering. Having both weeds and wheat within us, we humbly place our hope in the promises of God, and from the Lord’s table we go forth to bear the fruit of justice and mercy.
Scripture Readings: Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43, 25-30; Romans 8:12-25; Psalm 86:11-17
It Takes a Long Time to Make Good Soil (7/12)
07/12/20 • 9 min
God’s word is like the rain that waters the earth and brings forth vegetation. It is also like the sower who scatters seed indiscriminately. Our lives are like seeds sown in the earth. Even from what appears to be little, dormant, or dead, God promises a harvest. At the Lord’s table we are fed with the bread of life, that we may bear fruit in the world.
Scripture Readings: Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23; Isaiah 55:10-13; Psalm 65:1-13
Rest for Your Souls (7/5)
07/05/20 • 7 min
The mystery of God’s ways is sometimes hidden from the wise and intelligent. Jesus associates with those often excluded from the religious community. Like Paul, we struggle with our own selfish desires and seek God’s mercy and forgiveness. We gather to be refreshed by Christ’s invitation: “Come to me, all you that are weary.” Gathered around word, water, and meal, we find rest for our souls.
Scripture Readings: Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30; Romans 7:15-25a; Psalm 145:8-14
The SUM Total is LOVE (9/6)
09/06/20 • 9 min
Conflict is a part of relationships and life in community. Jesus’ words in today's gospel are often used in situations having to do with church discipline. Paul reminds us that love is the fulfilling of the law.
Scripture Readings: Matthew 18:15-20; Romans 13:8-14; Psalm 119:33-40
