THE THIRD SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
The Time after Pentecost is a teaching time, a growing
time, in the life of the church. This day’s texts celebrate
God's ability and intention to provide us with a
new lease on life. To that end we gather with the
whole people of God to be instructed by the word and
nourished in the blessed sacrament. If the weather
cooperates, we will worship outside this day!

THE FOURTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
The enormity of our sin is surpassed only by the mercy
of God. We come, repentant, to the table of the Lord.
In the body and blood of Jesus, in the announcement
of our absolution, all our sins are forgiven. "Happy are
they … whose sin is put away." Happy are we.

THE FIFTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
This Sunday's texts paint startling pictures of
the horriic—the demonic—nature of sin. The
church's repeated celebration of the holy communion
counters that tragic reality in a continued
showing forth of the death of Jesus "until
he comes." It is a dramatic declaration of "how
much God has done for you."

THE HOLY TRINITY
We have no good apart from God. That makes
our Lord's call to follow him an invitation to
freedom. This is freedom to revel in the Spirit's
fruits: love, joy, peace, patience, and the like.
This is the path of life.
