“The Church’s one foundation is Jesus Christ, her Lord; she is his new creation by water and the word.  From heaven he came and sought her to be his holy bride; with his own blood he bought her, and for her life he died.” – Samuel J. Stone – ELW # 654
This weekend’s Gospel reading addresses issues of authority, responsibility, and, if you look carefully, love. We hope that many of you will be able to join us this weekend for worship. We also look forward to seeing many of you with your beloved family members at our Annual Blessing of the Animals, taking place this Sunday @ 12:30 (weather permitting) in our outdoor chapel.
