Pilgrim Worship Sunday July 25, 2021

 


Pilgrim Lutheran Church

The Ninth Sunday after Pentecost

July 25, 2021


Dear friends & family of Pilgrim in Burton, Michigan,

SCRIPTURE READINGS FOR JULY 25TH
  Old Testament:   Genesis 9:8–17
               Psalm:   Psalm 136:1–9
              Epistle:   Ephesians 3:14–21
              Gospel:   Mark 6:45–56

THEME & IDEAS FROM THE SERMON   

Think of a time when you were misunderstood or had wrong expectations placed upon you.  Living up to the expectations of others is often impossible.  People have always expected Jesus to be and do things which were not part of His mission.  What kind of Jesus do you want?  Does the Jesus you need match your expectations?  What kind of Jesus does our family at Pilgrim want & need?

The Eighth Sunday after Pentecost

July 18, 2021


Dear friends & family of Pilgrim in Burton, Michigan,

We were blessed to gather earlier today at Pilgrim, to receive God's gifts and respond in humble praise & thanksgiving.  In the sermon we considered the Gospel lesson, best known for Jesus' miraculous feeding of over 5000 people from five small loaves and two fish.  Did you know that the loaves were likely from barley and were small, more like a biscuit?  Barely was less expensive and thus the more typical food of the poor residents of this area.  And the fish were likely "salt fish", about the size of sardines?  There is another teaching in these two facts; Jesus often accomplished great things for HIs kingdom, using what the world would consider the simplest and lowest things!

Anyway, in the sermon we developed this idea:  
JESUS' POWER, GIVEN TO US, BRINGS LIFE TO DESOLATE PLACES.  
Give it a listen, and think about desolate places in your life where God has brought life and where you might pray that He will do so.

The Seventh Sunday after Pentecost

July 11, 2021



Earlier today we gathered for worship at Pilgrim Lutheran Church.  

OUR THEME FOR WORSHIP TODAY
The Gospel reading for today sounds like an advertisement for some movie or Netflix show; it’s not really polite dinner conversation.  But that's OK, real people like you and me live lives that are messy and full of real sins.  We need exactly what we have:  real salvation & forgiveness, won for us by Jesus Christ on Calvary's cross.  Many of our sin stories are sordid and disgusting like Herod's, but Christ died to redeem all sinners; including Herod, you and me!  Thanks be to God for His gifts of salvation & forgiveness!
