Devotional

For Your Reflection:

5th Sunday after Pentecost
To love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind is to reflect God’s mercy in responding to one’s neigbor.  That mercy found its most profound expression in the “gospel that has come to you” – namely the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  That gospel mercy comes to us again today; at the font, at the altar and from the pulpit.  It is very near to you.
