The Lutheran Order of Service for the 3rd last Sunday (using the propers for the 25th Sunday after the high Holiday of the holy Trinity) in the Church year is available here in isiZulu and seTswana. Today it comes with a sermon based on God’s word from the gospel of St. Luke in the eighteenth chapter the verses 1-8 written by my father Rev.

The readings for this Sunday are:
Old Testament: Job 14:1-6
The Epistle: Romans 14:7-9
The Gospel: Luke 17:20-24 (25-30)
The liturgical colour is green.
May you have a very blessed weekend and have time to meditate on the watchword for this week: I tell you, now is the time of God’s favour, now is the day of salvation. (2Co 6:2 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)
