Sunday, February 3, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.) ~ Fourth Sunday After the Epiphany ~ The glory of God is often revealed when and where it is least expected. God uses our lips to declare that glory, inexperienced and hesitant though they may be. God uses our love to demonstrate that glory and so urges us to exercise it. God uses Jesus of Nazareth, water and the word, bread and wine, to reveal God’s glory where and when God chooses. Take heed, lest the glory of God slip through our midst unnoticed.

Sunday, February 10, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.) ~ Fifth Sunday After the Epiphany ~ The fifth Sunday after Epiphany continues to highlight unlikely instruments and circumstances appointed to reveal the glory of the Lord. “Who will go for us?” queries the voice of the Lord. A man of unclean lips, a former persecutor of the church of God, and three fishermen who couldn’t catch a thing. More surprising still, perhaps, is the fact that we are also called.

Sunday, February 17, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.) ~ Sixth Sunday After the Epiphany ~ Blessings and curses abound on the sixth Sunday after Epiphany. We would do well to listen closely to whom the “blessed ares” and the “woe tos” are directed and to find our place in the crowd among those who desire to touch Jesus. The risen Christ stands among us in the mystery of the holy supper with an invitation to live in him and the power to heal us all.

Sunday, February 24, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.) ~ Seventh Sunday After the Epiphany ~ Mercy. Mercy. Mercy. Joseph lives it in Egypt. Jesus preaches it in the gospel. The Spirit guides us into merciful lives with the power of forgiveness to reconcile what is fractured and divided. Such merciful living is the baptismal blessing of having put on Christ. It is the gift of the life-giving Spirit. It is a reflection of the glory of God revealed in the Christ.
New Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church wishes you a blessed day
