The Word This Sunday
July 7, 2019
Fourth Sunday after Pentecost
God is the source of our nourishment. Our Lord’s invitation to “take and eat . . . take and drink” is a repeated one. In the holy eucharist, in the word read and proclaimed, in the assembly of the people of God, the dominion of God has come near. Rejoice! Your name is written in heaven.

Jerusalem, a nursing mother giving life to her children

All the earth bows down before you and sings out your name.  (Ps. 66:4)

Do what is right now and reap at the harvest time

Jesus sends out seventy disciples into the harvest
Pastor Monica's 
60-Second Sermon
" Jesus sends his disciples out into the world to proclaim the Good News of God’s love and mercy for all people. Can you imagine how you’d feel, sent out to preach the Gospel in strange towns without supplies, money, extra clothes, not even sandals for your feet? Jesus understands that his disciples will be completely at the mercy of strangers, wholly vulnerable and dependent on others. This humility is Jesus’ mode of being every day, as he brings nothing but God’s love to the world, and yet this message and gift is the ultimate ‘everything.’ He knows that where the disciples are welcomed, their message will be heard and understood with the potential to transform lives. He also counsels them wisely not to argue or stay where they’re not wanted, but to move on, trusting in God’s guidance and protection. Jesus calls us to the same task: we are to teach all who are willing about God’s love, without force, that we may be living examples of Christ’s humility and lovingkindness." Luke 10:1-11, 16-20

Peace to all,   Pastor Monica
Confirmation Student Outings in July

We have two outings planned for our confirmands in July to help give them an insight into poverty in Memphis as well as Christian solutions to live out Jesus’ Great Commission, including the Trinity feeding program and the Church Health Ctr. It will also give them a good base of Lutheran baptismal doctrine in a fun setting with their peers from other area ELCA churches. 

On Tuesday, July 9, we will depart St. Luke Lutheran Church for downtown Memphis. We will ride the trolley downtown, visit the Civil Rights Museum, visit the Slave Haven/Underground Railroad, and eat lunch. The total cost per student is no more than $40. Parents and Mentors are welcome to attend as chaperones at your own cost. If your child requires confidential financial assistance please contact Pastor Monica . We will return to St Luke/Epiphany late in the afternoon for parent pickup.

On Wednesday, July 10, we will meet at Epiphany Chapel at 8:15am, drive to Crosstown Concourse for a guided tour of the Church Health Center, then drive to Peace Lutheran to serve a hot lunch to homeless persons as part of Peace Lutheran/Trinity Ministries’ regular lunch program (we will eat lunch together with them and then clean up - confirmands can obtain service hours for this). After cleanup we will gather with the Peace confirmation students for an introduction to the Affirmation of Baptism Rite and God’s promises, plus snack time. Pastor Cliff, Pastor Tonie and Pastor Monica will lead the session and the students will have plenty of activities and discussion. We will return to the Chapel no later than 4pm on Wednesday for parent pickup. There is  no cost to students for the Wednesday programming

Please RSVP to Pastor Monica as soon as possible for these two day sessions, and contact her for any questions. Participation is strongly encouraged.
