Lectionary Summaries


Luke 13:26 “Then you will begin to say, 'We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets.'” Proximity to Jesus and the things of faith is not faith itself. Many Pharisees heard His Word – but ignored it, refused to believe in it. We want to be not only hearers, but doers of Jesus' Word. We want not just proximity to Jesus, but true communion with Him. We want to hear Him, follow Him, praise Him, and return thanks.

Life Message

“A Christian father will also serve as spiritual priest of the family. As such he is to nourish the souls of the children, teaching them about the Lord, His will for their lives, and about His loving, gracious, and merciful ways.” Rev. Mark Gullerud, pastor at Redeemer Lutheran Church, Bowdle, South Dakota – A Life Quote from Lutherans For Life
