"This life therefore is not righteousness, but growth in righteousness, not health, but healing, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not yet what we shall be, bit we are growing toward it, the process is not yet finished, but it is going on, this is not the end, but it is the road. All does not yet gleam in glory, but all is being purified." - Martin Luther
Join us this Sunday as, with favorite hymns, music from St. Andrew's Brass, and special music from our choir, we celebrate the the Reformation,, giving thanks for Martin Luther and church reformers who continue to refocus the church's attention on the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. The readings for this Sunday: Jeremiah 31:31-34, Psalm 46, Romans 3:19-28, John 8:31-36. Let us continue to open our eyes, ears, and hearts to the Spirit's presence among us as we continue to see reformation in our churches, communities, and our daily lives. And let us give thanks for the gift of faith that sustains and strengthens us every step of the way. For those of you who are unable to join us this Sunday, continue to pray for our mission together as people grounded in faith and growing in service. I am so grateful for the incredible generosity and grace of so many of our members, for the ways that you encourage one another, and for the ways that you embody Christ'a grace and healing power. It is truly a privilege to serve among you. Exciting and challenging times ahead! See you in church!
