Saturday, November 2, 2019 (Worship Service at 6:00 p.m.) & 

Sunday, November 3, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.) ~ All Saints Day ~ In holy baptism God makes saints out of sinners.  In holy communion God forgives the sins of all the saints.  In the assembly today we give thanks for all the saints “who from their labors rest,” who have fought the good fight, who have gained the crown.  In the same breath we petition our God for the strength to hear and to heed the admonitions of the Lord Jesus in today’s gospel.  Recalling that we have been sealed by the Spirit and sustained by the Savior’s body and blood, we keep on keeping on as God gives us breath, to the praise of God’s glory.

Sunday, November 10, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.) ~ Twenty-Second Sunday of Pentecost ~ We worship on the first day of the week because our Savior was raised on that day.  Every Sunday is a little Easter.  This Sunday feels more like Easter than many as the appointed texts celebrate the reality of the resurrection.  Live it up this Lord’s day.  Our God is the God of the living.

Sunday, November 17, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.) ~ Twenty-Third Sunday of Pentecost ~ The end is near.  There is no doubt about it.  The warnings are dire.  The tone of today’s texts is ominous.  But the baptized know how to live in the “meantimes.”  The baptized are strengthened for the living of these days in word and sacrament.  The baptized rally around the invitation of the apostle:  “Brothers and sisters, do not be weary in doing what is right.”

Sunday, November 24, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.) ~ Christ the King Sunday ~ Jeremiah’s promise of the execution of “justice and righteousness in the land” finds ironic fulfillment in the execution of Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews. It appears so utterly contradictory that the king should be crucified with the criminal. This victory appears for all the world as ignominious defeat. Yet through the gate of death our Lord opens the door to paradise.
