As Lutheran Christians, we at St. Paul’s believe that the “sacraments” of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion belong at the center of our life together. Beginning on Sunday, June 11, we will be reflecting on those sacraments and pondering how they serve to create, build, and sustain our lives of faith, both as individuals and as a community. Join us this Sunday, June 18, as we continue our series by exploring Holy Baptism and how this means of grace continues to renew our life in Christ. Worship with Holy Communion begins at 10:00am at St. Paul’s.
Narrative Lectionary Daily Readings
The Narrative Lectionary focuses our congregation on one Scripture reading each Sunday. Below are some suggested readings to make connections between this past Sunday’s and next Sunday’s texts or to examine related stories in Scripture (from the fine folks at www.clergystuff.com). Further resources for reflection can be found in the inserts in Sunday’s bulletin. (Updated Mondays.)
