Sunday, February 5 ~ Fifth Sunday after Epiphany
Today we hear in the Gospel of Matthew Jesus' Sermon on the Mount continue. This reading from Matthew gives us a few familiar phrases. In our baptismal service we hear verse 16 "let your light so shine before others that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven." This is also the passage in which Jesus tells his listeners that he has not come to abolish the law, but to fulfill it. Jesus is just getting started in his Sermon on the Mount. Today in worship we will also be receiving new members.
Sunday, February 12 ~ Sixth Sunday after Epiphany
The Sermon on the Mount continues this Sunday. Today we hear some pretty difficult words from Jesus about anger, adultery, divorce, and even swearing an oath. Jesus is talking about topics that echo back to the 10 Commandments. It seems that Jesus is encouraging us to embrace those commandments, because that pattern of behavior honors God and our neighbors.
Sunday, February 19 ~ Seventh Sunday after Epiphany
Today we continue to hear from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. In this portion of Jesus' teachings he is telling us to love our neighbors, turn the other cheek, and even to love our enemies. It is a message of love, patience, and forgiveness that Jesus shares with us this morning.
Sunday, February 26 ~ Transfiguration Sunday
Today's Gospel reading echoes back to Jesus' Baptism as we hear again God's voice naming Jesus as God's Son. Jesus is revealed in all his glory, and his face is set toward the cross in Jerusalem. This story and day marks the end of the Season of Epiphany and the beginning of the coming Lenten journey. This is also the day when we put away the Alleluias, that celebratory word won't be used again until Easter Sunday morning.
Trindle Spring Lutheran Church:
Claimed by God in baptism,
