  • The sermon was about Jesus’ parable of the banquet feast. How do you respond to God’s invitation? Are you too busy with the things of this world? Do you reject Jesus because you would rather not hear God’s Word because it exposes your sinfulness or demands repentance? God has provided for your salvation through the gift of His Son. He invites you to come for all things are now ready!

  • Though Halloween is often associated with knocks on the door and children’s voices saying “trick or treat,” there was one Halloween knock on the door — Halloween was then called All Hallows Eve, the evening leading into All Saints Day — which was heard around the world. It happened a long time ago, 500 years, to be exact. The knock on the door wasn’t just on any door but on the church door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, located in Saxony (part of modern-day Germany). And the knocking wasn’t to get someone to answer the door. It was the knocking of a German monk and university professor named Martin Luther as he nailed his 95 Theses (or statements) to the church door in hope that his discussion points could be studied and debated and some abuses corrected.

It is a regular part of our Communion Liturgy which is spoken or sung before the elements are, by the reading of the Words of Institution, consecrated for use in the Lord’s Supper.

Revelation 19:7ff.). They were too busy with their own lives and religious service, and they made excuses and did not come and partake of the salvation God provided in His Son.

  • What’s really wrong with America? What changed the nation’s course and led us down a path which makes our nation — our society — almost unrecognizable to those of us who still remember another America?
