Your Turn / Re: Who are the Other Sheep?
April 21, 2024, 08:36:12 AM
Jesus testing the Canaanite woman said, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel."  Thanks be to God that He came also for us dogs (Gentiles), allowing us to be part of his flock as the "other sheep".
Well for today the KJV/NKJV isn't the best translation to use for the reading of the Epistle lesson (if using the historic pericopes)....

Maybe it was a good thing Concordia in Austin decided to go independent before they got shut down as well?
If a congregation is happy with their pastor, is there anything wrong for another congregation to desire (covet) him as their own pastor by issuing him a "call"?

I ask:
Are you talking about the 1970s and the 1990s or the 1570s and 1590s?

Where's the "Like" button?

Joseph must have been quite a bit older than the Blessed Virgin since he was a widower with children.  (unless you take the reference to Christ's brothers as cousins).

We (unfortunately) used what was based upon Luther's home-made liturgy instead of the historic liturgy of the church.
This summary of the difference between the two major Lutheran church bodies in America is from Jaroslav Pelikan: "the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod became Baptist, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America became Methodist".
Wondering if Pope Francis health is such that he is trying to push through his reforms before his time is up?  What will be next?  Women's Ordination?

It would be nice to include in the prayers a petition that both the Jews and the Muslims would be converted to the one true God where true peace may be found.
I "vote" that pastors "preach Christ and Him crucified"!

The one thing about the one-year lectionary that is somewhat sad is the lack of the "Bread of Life" passages of John 6.
Traditional date is on the octave of the Epiphany -- January 13th.
