13th Sunday after Pentecost

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

The word of God is a refining fire. Jesus is the great divide in human history. He invites our undivided attention and devotion. Today, in the assembly, we are surrounded by “so great a cloud of witnesses.” In the word and in the holy communion we are invited yet again to look to Jesus, “the pioneer and perfecter of our faith.”

Readings this week:

  • Jeremiah 23:23-29

    God’s word is like fire, like a hammer that breaks rocks

  • Psalm 82

    Arise, O God, and rule the earth. (Ps. 82:8)

  • Hebrews 11:29--12:2

    The faith of the Hebrew people, a great cloud of witnesses

  • Luke 12:49-56

    Jesus brings fire on earth and has a baptism with which to be baptized
