Lectionary Summaries

Rev Vance and Linda Becker - Serving the Lord in Kenya


(Trinity 8) Romans 8:16 – “The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God.” Children are called to grow up into the image of their Father. That’s the basis not only of our generosity but of our entire life of Christian living. God sets the pattern, and we follow. God is kind to us in Christ, and so we desire to be kind. God is loving to us in Christ, and so we desire to love. God is generous and open-handed to us in Christ, and so we desire to be generous and open-handed.

Life Message

“We need to keep fueled up through Christian fellowship in worship and in the sacraments. We need to pray without ceasing and receive the peace in that special relationship with God. And then, we need to stand strong and boldly declare God’s plan for life. We can’t be timid, afraid to speak up or be noticed. If we don’t share the truth, who will?” Virginia Flo, Regional Director of Minnesota and National Conference Director, Lutherans For Life - A Life Quote from Lutherans For Life
