About this worship
The third covenant in this year’s Lenten readings is the central one of Israel’s history: the gift of the law to those God freed from slavery. The Ten Commandments are one of the chief parts of Luther’s catechism, a core piece of baptismal instruction. They begin with the statement that because God alone has freed us from the powers that oppressed us, we are to let nothing else claim first place in our lives. When Jesus throws the merchants out of the temple, he is defending the worship of God alone and rejecting the ways commerce and profit-making can become our gods.
The Lenten environment at Saint Luke is a pilgrim’s road. With each entry into the sanctuary we re-create our spiritual journey, adjusting our direction to better follow the One whose sacrifice restores our loss. The first change comes in the paradisum. The Christ Figure no longer stands triumphant with a silver universe at its feet. The figure now is bracketed by thorns. Candles and flowers are gone. Symbols of the Passion – dice, thorns, nails, whip and statue of a rooster – are arranged at the base of the figure.
Sunday School is for all children ages Pre-School through Grade 6. In-Person Pre-School will meet during the school year from 8:30 – 9:15 A.M
