Twenty-second Week after Pentecost


November 9 and 10, 2019




Welcome in the name of the Lord!  We trust that if you are seeking Christ, you will find him here; if troubled in spirit, you will gain peace; if discouraged, you will rejoice in hope; if friendless, find companionship and Christian love; that these and other blessings may be your portion is our prayer.

 Commemorations this Week


Monday, November 11     Martin, Bishop of Tours, died 397     Martin's pagan father enlisted him in the Roman army. Approached by a beggar, Martin cut his cloak in half and gave part to the man, whom he later understood as representing Christ. He asked to leave the army, but was jailed instead. After his release, he became a preacher, and later a bishop.


Monday, November 11     Søren Aabye Kierkegaard, teacher, died 1855     Kierkegaard was a Danish theologian whose writings also gave rise to the modern philosophy of existentialism. He frequently attacked the complacency of the state church of his day, as well as its desire to be accepted by polite society rather than be a stumbling block.


Next weekend’s readings:  Mal 4:1-2a; Ps 98; 2 Thess 3:6-13; Luke 21:3-19


God bless you. Invite a friend to worship with you.
