21st Sunday after Pentecost

A Prayer of Moses, the man of God 1 Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations. 2 Before the mountains were brought forth,    or ever you had formed the earth and the world,    from everlasting to everlasting you are God. 3 You return man to dust and say, “Return, O […]

20th Sunday after Pentecost

The Synodical theme and text for the ELCE’s 2018 Synodical Convention raised a few eyebrows in some quarters. Here at Ascension, you were nicely quiet.

14th Sunday after Pentecost

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none who does good. The Lord looks down from heaven on the children of man, to see if there are any who understand, who seek after God. They have all turned aside; together they have become […]

13th Sunday after Pentecost

[Jesus said] “I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.” The Jews then disputed among themselves, saying, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” […]

Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So may the gods do to me and more also, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by this time tomorrow.” […]

10th Sunday after Pentecost

Immediately [Jesus] made his disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd. And after he had taken leave of them, he went up on the mountain to pray. And when evening came, the boat was out on the sea, and he was alone […]
