Sermon for July 26, 2015

Ninth Sunday after Pentecost, Year B

John 6:1-21

Pastor Kate Costa

Imagine with me back to Detroit, one Saturday ago.  Our nine youth, plus two more from Our Savior in Warrenton had just gotten back from a hot afternoon cleaning up the streets around Focus: HOPE.  This project is seeking to revitalize 100 square blocks, providing a safe residential area where all can receive education and prosper- from HeadStart programs for toddlers to GED and technology programs for adults.  Our youth were out in the sun in 95 degree heat, rolling away tires, taking down weeds the size of trees and trees the size of weeds.  They were getting their hands dirty digging up broken bottles and carting away mini mountains of trash.  In a few short hours, together with 30,000 other youth, they made a huge difference for the city of Detroit.

Save the Date for a Reformation Revival!

Come Thirsty:  Revive!  Refresh!  Rejoice!  “On Faith Alone

 When:  Sunday Afternoon, October 25, 2015

 Where:  Christ Lutheran, Fredericksburg, VA

 For the 5th year in a row, five area Virginia Synod churches – Christ and Resurrection in Fredericksburg, Our Saviour in Warrenton, St. Luke’s in Culpeper and St. Peter’s in Stafford – are joining together for a fellowship meal and shared worship experience in true Reformation fashion.

Save the date:  Reformation Sunday, October 25th!  You will not want to miss the opportunity to meet and greet your fellow area ELCA Lutherans.  Guest preacher for the event will be Pastor Clay Schmit, who is the chief administrative officer of the School of Theology at Lenoir-Rhyne.  A Joint Choir from all of the churches will provide our music on this special Sunday of the Reformation.

We repeat:

Come Thirsty:  Revive!  Refresh!  Rejoice!  On Faith Alone
