Sermon Introduction –
Our Gospel from Luke reinforces the fact that Jesus is the ACTOR and we are the ones acted upon. The appropriate response; faith.
Introduction to our readings –
It’s a miracle! Multiple miracles! The waters of holy baptism have healed us. The body and blood of Jesus in holy communion have made us clean. We have died with Christ and been raised with him. For all this we have returned to offer thanks. From this place we are sent on our way rejoicing to share the good news.
