What is the Gospel?

The Gospel is the preached Word to the whole world
that God is superabundantly rich in
His grace and  goodness.
God forgives sins!

Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost

And he said to them, "Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest a while." For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. Mark 6:31

Greetings in the name of Jesus!

No, this reading won’t be coming up any time soon but it is a lovely intro to remind you that I will be taking some time off from the 1st to the 17th of October. For this reason, I am sending my usual invitation out a little earlier this week and with the bulletins for the next 3 Sundays. Please see the attachments and keep this email handy for the Zoom link.

Rev. Dr. Joel Human will lead you in worship in my absence. For those who don’t know him, Pastor Joel is Preceptor and Tutor at Westfield House.

You will notice that this Sunday is Harvest Festival. Due to Covid we skipped this celebration last year, but now that we are coming out of it - and fairly unscathed - we have plenty of reasons to thank the Lord for His bountiful blessings. If you wish, please bring non-perishable food items and toiletries. They will be given to charity.

In case you need pastoral care while I am away, please, contact Pastor George Samiec on 07788 837680 or pastor@ascensionlutheranchurch.org.uk

See you soon. In the meantime, stay well and blessed.

Pastor Jaime
