Welcome to Lutheran Church of the Master for the 3rd Sunday after Epiphany. Jesus begins his public ministry by calling fishers to leave their nets and follow him. In Jesus the kingdom of God has come near. We who have walked in darkness have seen a great light. We see this light most profoundly in the cross—as God suffers with us and all who are oppressed by sickness, sin, or evil. Light dawns for us as we gather around the word, the font, and the holy table. We are then sent to share the good news that others may be “caught” in the net of God’s grace and mercy.
As we celebrate the beginning of Jesus’ ministry, we rejoice and give thanks for the conclusion of Deacon Pat’s ministry among us. What a day of celebration we have before us. As we celebrate and give thanks for the ministry of Pat, we’re honored to welcome Bishop Yehiel Curry to worship with us and bring us the good news. For worship today, I invite you to please download and open the worship guide to fully participate as you, too, are a vital participant in today’s liturgy. Peace & Blessings Dear Church ~ Pastor Dave
