12th Sunday after Pentecost
August 16, 2015
Pastor Kate Costa
Jesus Christ is the bread of life. He is our manna, come down from heaven. And this morning we hear him proclaim, “Those who eat of my flesh and drink of my blood will have eternal life.”
Do you remember the book Tuck Everlasting? I read it in elementary school, just when I was starting to realize that I wouldn’t stay young forever. I was getting ready, like our many children who gathered around the altar last week, to start a new year and move up to the middle school. I was excited about the change, but at the same time it seemed like it would be nice to stay at Greendale Elementary School forever, with the kids that I had grown up with, the playground equipment that was familiar, and no pesky new locker combinations to memorize. All the same.
Let’s kick off the new school year with fun and fellowship!

Ninth Sunday after Pentecost, Year B
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.
…will be on Sept. 13. Mark your calendars to join us after worship for a bagged lunch and service projects in the community. Lutheran churches across the US will be participating!
