The 5th Sunday of Lent

  • Holy Trinity Lutheran Church 7220 Southeast Cesar E Chavez Boulevard Portland, OR, 97202 United States (map)

The Lord our God makes all things new. In the first reading God promises it. In the gospel Mary anticipates it, anointing Jesus’ feet with costly perfume in preparation for the day of his burial. In the second reading we recall the transformation of Saul, the persecutor, into Paul, the apostle. In baptism, God’s new person (you!) rises daily from the deadly mire of trespasses and sins.

Isaiah 43:16-21

The Lord gives water in the wilderness to the chosen people
