The Lutheran Order of Service for this year’s 17th Sunday after the high holiday of the most holy and venerated godly Trinity is available here in isiZulu and seTswana. Today it comes with a sermon based on God’s word from the gospel of the evangelist St. John the 9th chapter verses 35-41 written by my brother Rev. P.C. Weber from the LC in Ohlangeni (KZN) in isiZulu (wz1347130922 n Tr 17) and translated as usual into seTswana (wt1347130922 n Tr17) by my father Rev. E.A.W.Weber DD (Welbedacht, KZN).
The readings for this Sunday are:
Old Testament: Isaiah 49:1-6
The Epistle: Romans 10:9-17 (18)
The Gospel: Matthew 15:21-28
The liturgical colour is green.
May you have a very blessed weekend and have time to meditate on the watchword for this Sunday: This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. (1Jo 5:4 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 and faithful words, biblical pictures and stories to preach his holy will purely and his promises faithfully! However if you are not preaching, but listening – then listen for God is talking to you + His precious gospel is “the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.” (Rom 1:16 NIV)
