Welcome to St. Luke Lutheran Church in Richmond, VA.

Message from Pastor Fred Marcoux:

 

It is with great sadness that I report the passing of Pastor Dottie Nimal.  Bishop Mauney called this morning to inform me. 

 

The funeral will be at St. Luke this Thursday, January 29, 2015 at 12:00pm. Bishop Mauney will preach and I will preside at Eucharist.

 

A reception will follow the service.  

 

In Christ,

Pastor Fred

Fourth Sunday after Epiphany

 

 

9:00am Sunday School for all ages

10:00am Worship with Holy Communion

 

INTRODUCTION

 

In Deuteronomy God promises to raise up a prophet like Moses, who will speak for God; in Psalm 111 God shows the people the power of God's works. For the church these are ways of pointing to the unique authority people sensed in Jesus' actions and words. We encounter that authority in God's word, around which we gather, the word that trumps any lesser spirit that would claim power over us, freeing us to follow Jesus.

 

 

Readings

 

Deuteronomy 18:15–20

Psalm 111 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom. (Ps. 111:10)

1 Corinthians 8:1–13

Mark 1:21–28

 

 

Prayer of the Day

 

Compassionate God,

you gather the whole universe into your radiant presence

and continually reveal your Son as our Savior.

Bring wholeness to all that is broken

and speak truth to us in our confusion,

that all creation will see and know your Son,

Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.

Fifth Sunday after Epiphany

 

9:00am Sunday School for all ages

10:00am Worship with Holy Communion

 

 

INTRODUCTION

 

In Isaiah it is the one God who sits above the earth and numbers the stars—it is that God who strengthens the powerless. So in Jesus' healing work we see the hand of the creator God, lifting up the sick woman to health and service (diakonia). Like Simon's mother-in-law, we are lifted up to health and diakonia. Following Jesus, we strengthen the powerless; like Jesus, we seek to renew our own strength in quiet times of prayer.

 

 

Readings

 

Isaiah 40:21–31

Psalm 147:1–11, 20c  The LORD heals the brokenhearted. (Ps. 147:3)

1 Corinthians 9:16–23

Mark 1:29–39

 

Prayer of the Day

 

Everlasting God,

you give strength to the weak and power to the faint.

Make us agents of your healing and wholeness,

that your good news may be made known to the ends of your creation,

through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
