Welcome to worship this weekend with the Lutheran Church of the Master for the 15th Sunday after Pentecost! The waters of baptism wash away all distinctions. Like streams breaking forth in the desert, these waters surprise us with mercy in unexpected places. These waters open our eyes, unstop our ears, and loose our tongues to see, hear, and speak God’s partiality for the poor, the weak, and the outcast. Baptized into Christ’s death and resurrection, the Spirit fills us with faith—a faith active in showing mercy that knows no limits. Around the table, rich and poor, haughty and humble, all who gather receive a feast fit for the family of God. All are honored and all are fed, because the Lord is the maker of them all.
I hope you have had the opportunity to download the resources for this Season of The Spirit to prepare your at-home worship spaces or worship in the building. I also hope that your sabbath is fulfilling, as today promises to be an inspiring morning. For our liturgy 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
