Fourteenth Sunday after Trinity, 17 September 2017
Today, Immanuel Lutheran celebrates Rally Day and resumes Christian education for all ages. Bibles are gifted to our young ones, teachers blessed and entrusted before God with their sacred teaching tasks. We pause to reflect with Solomon on the practical nature of spiritual life and learning. Not all paths lead to heaven, nor to a healthy family life. Some are downright dangerous and destructive.
Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. His Word shines as a lamp to our feet and light to our path. Though wounded and stained with sin, stumbling and sometimes going astray, the Gospel brings return of life and healing along our way. God bless and preserve us by His Holy Spirit, that forgiven and forgiving we walk in His ways together in Christ.
