This Sunday we'll hear these words from one of the earliest hymns to Jesus. Unlike other lords, he did not "lord it over" others, but chose the way of humility, of service, of loving the world's outcasts. He died for it, executed by the state as a criminal. And he rose from the dead, continuing this new kingdom eternally.
We celebrate and witness to this new kind of Lord in a service of Holy Communion beginning at 11 o'clock, Pastor Paul Brndjar preaching and presiding. After the service, we will gather for refreshments, and there will be a Bible study on the letter to the Hebrews.
Grace and peace to you.
