Wednesday Lenten Services & Suppers – Week Four

The downstairs adult Sunday School class served hotdogs with all the sides for our Lenten Supper. There was even sauerkraut and spicy brown mustard, not to mention chili and slaw. There was mac and cheese for the kiddos. Mason did his “happy dance” when he saw it on the table.

After a good supper with extra helpings of fellowship, we went upstairs to sing Vespers to the Lord.

Wednesday Lenten Services & Suppers – Week Three

romans5-5-1024x576

The upstairs adult Sunday School class prepared yummy lasagna and all the right sides for our Lenten Supper. One person remarked, “So, this is Lenten sacrifice, huh?” It was “good eats,” for sure.

The highlight of the evening was 3½-year-old Mason Crooks singing along with the Vespers service. He was on pitch and sang at the right time. It was wonderful. Pr. Ryman invited him to come up and sit with the choir—to their delight when he did so.

From the homily: Isaiah 56:1, 6-8   It is too common and too easy to only understand holding fast to the covenant of God as a response to the law. Many people think like this: God says, do this, so I will do it so that I will be accepted. This is an okay way to think about it, but not the only way to think about holding fast to the covenant. There is the gospel side, too. Luther says that the one who holds fast to the covenant is the one who trusts in God’s promises. (Luther’s Works, Concordia, vol 17, p 263) The one who holds fast to God’s covenant is the one who, when unable to perform the law, still trusts his promises, instead of one’s works—good or bad.
