LIturgy Letter Newsletter – Second Sunday after Pentecost 2019 (Year C)

Grace, Faith, and New Life
God provides for the faithful who are at their wit’s end (1 Kings 19:1-15a). His covenant love rescues those who have proven to be obstinate and slow to honor his ways (Isaiah 65:1-9). Jesus Christ makes us children of God through faith. Those who are baptized into Christ are heirs of God’s covenant and members of his community (Galatians 3:23-29). Praise God! Jesus has the power to cast out evil and has come to rescue those who are far from God (Luke 8:26-39).

Liturgy Letter Newsletter – Trinity Sunday 2019 (Year C)

Wisdom, Beauty, and the Life of God
“Wisdom, in the form of Jesus, has always been with the Father (Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31). When we see the beauty of creation, we are amazed that God has given us the chance to be his children (Psalm 8). We are grateful that we may be at peace with God through Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1-5) and that we are given the gift of the Holy Spirit (John 16: 12-15).”

Come Holy Spirit
It is not our achievements that matter (Genesis 11:1-9) but the breath-taking works of the Lord (Psalm 104:24-34,35b). Because we are his children and fellow heirs with Christ (Romans 8:14-17), empowered by God, we are able to achieve more than we could ever accomplish by ourselves. Christ has left his peace with us, so we need not be troubled or afraid (John 14:8-17,25-27).
