The Lutheran Order of Service for the 12th Sunday after Trinity is available here in isiZulu and seTswana. Today it comes with a sermon based on God’s word in the gospel of St. Mark the 8th chapter verses 22-26 by my brother P. Peter Weber (LC Ohlangeni, KZN) in isiZulu (wz1342130818 n Tr 12) and translated as usual into seTswana (wt1342130818 n Tr 12) by my father Rev. E.A.W.Weber DD (Welbedacht, KZN).
The readings for this Sunday are:
Old Testament: Isaiah 29:17-24
The Epistle: Acts 9:1-9 (10-20)
The Gospel: Mark 7:31-37
The liturgical colour is green.
May you have a very blessed weekend and have time to meditate on the watchword for this Sunday: A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. (Isa 42:3 NIV) – and if you are called to preach this weekend, may the triune God give you joy and strength, enthusiasm and wisdom, knowledge and insight – and the true words and pictures to preach his holy will purely and his promises faithfully! However if you are not preaching, but listening – then listen as if God is talking to you + His precious gospel is “the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.” (Rom 1:16 NIV)
