Lectionary Summaries


Luke 9:36 “And when the voice had spoken, Jesus was found alone.” Moses and Elijah point to Jesus, speak about Jesus and His sacrifice and then they are happy to fade into the background. They know that what we need is Jesus. With our eyes focused on Him and Him alone the rest of our lives come into focus. He is primary, all else secondary. When that order is right in our lives, things truly fall into place. Or as Jesus Himself said, “Seek first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added unto you.”

Life Message

“Should there be a line that determines when humans have value? Some say it’s at viability … when there’s a heartbeat … at birth. Some even argue that the ability to reason should be the dividing line, which would making killing infants okay, too. These lines we draw are so arbitrary, meaningless … Human beings are valuable because we are human beings. And it’s as plain and simple as that.” Micaiah Bilger, Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation – – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life –
