The Lutheran Order of Service for this years holiday of the Harvest festival scheduled for the 1st Sunday in September is available here in isiZulu, seTswana and English. Today it comes with a sermon based on God’s word from the gospel of the apostle St. Matthew in the 6th chapter verses 19-23 by myself in English (Mt 6, 9-15 Harvestfestival 2013) and translated as usual into both isiZulu (wz1344130901 umkhosi wokubonga ukuvuna) and seTswana (wt1344130901 moletlo wa go lebogela thobo) by my father Rev. E.A.W.Weber DD (Welbedacht, KZN).
The readings for the Harvest festival are:
Old Testament: Isaiah 58:7-12
The Epistle: 2.Corinthians 9:6-15
The Gospel: Luke 12,(13-14)15-21
The liturgical colour is green.
May you have a very blessed weekend and have time to meditate on the watchword for the Sunday: The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food at the proper time. (Psa 145:15 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)
