Lectionary Summaries


Matthew 22:21 Then he said to them, "Therefore render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." So what is Jesus saying? Doesn’t everything belong to God? Yes – and God has a place for everything. Some of what He gives us goes to Caesar. Some must come back to the work of His Church. And some goes to support the families He has given us. All belongs to God – and he has work for us to do with what He has given us in the Home, in the Church, and in Society.

Life Message

“Usually, when people think of life issues, they think of ‘political’ or ‘social’ or ‘controversial’ issues and come to the erroneous conclusion that we should not be talking about them in church. But do you know what I call issues of life and death, pain and suffering, fear and anxiety, sin and guilt, regret and grief, and end-of-life decisions? I call them ‘spiritual’ and ‘biblical’ issues! The Gospel of Jesus Christ is tailor made for such issues.” Rev. Dr. James I. Lamb, executive director of Lutherans For Life – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life – www.lutheransforlife.org
