Pentecost 9 – Proper 12-C 2010
Pr. Kurt A. Van Fossan
Last week in the reading about Jesus in Martha and Mary’s home we heard that there was a time and place for everything—a time to serve and a time to be served. When Christ is present through His Word and Sacraments (as He is this morning), it’s time to be served by God. After the Divine Service, renewed and strengthened in our faith in God’s promises, we leave this place and go out into the mission field where God gives us plenty of opportunities to use the gifts He has given us to serve those around us—to share the peace and love of God through our words and actions.
