The Lutheran Order of Service for this years 18th Sunday after the high holiday of the most holy and blessed Trinity coincides with the holiday of the archangel St. Michael and all angels celebrated traditionally on the 29th September every year. Today the order of service is available here in isiZulu and seTswana and comes with a sermon based on God’s word from Exodus 20 verses 1-17 written by my father Rev. E.A.W.Weber DD (Welbedacht, KZN) in both isiZulu (wz1348130929 n Tr 18a) and seTswana (wt1348130929 n Tr 18).
The readings for the 18th Sunday after Trinity are:
Old Testament: Exodus (2. Mose) 20, 1-17
The Epistle: Romans 14,17-19
The Gospel: Mark 12,28-34
The liturgical colour is green (or for the Holiday of St. Michael and all angels white)
May you have a very blessed weekend and have time to meditate on the watchword for the Sunday: And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister. (1Jo 4:21 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)
