TODAY (White) Acts 2:14, 22-33; 1 Pt 1:17-21; Lk 24:13-35

NEXT WEEK (White) 22-33 Acts 2:14a, 36-4; 1 Pt 2:20b-25; Jn 10:1-10

On our own we cannot grasp the mystery of the resurrection. The two disciples on the road to Emmaus were “conversing and debating;” they recount the facts but could not believe the mystery. Yet they greatly desired to move from disappointment and unbelief to hearts burning with life and belief—they invited Jesus to stay the night with them. Our own participation in Word and Sacrament must give rise to the same desire in us: to seek Life by journeying deeper into the mystery.

CHRISTIAN STEWARDSHIP:
Commit yourself to God—and the stewardship way of life. Give thanks for all your God given gifts. Serve God with your time, talent and treasure. Tithing provides a regular, predictable source of funding. This reduces the need for constant activities, and frees time and energy for other responsibilities of Christian life. Give with a loving generous heart. “Store up for yourselves treasures in heaven…for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Mt 6:20-21
Your giving is the key to the success of church plans and programs. To help us meet our obligations, please pray about TITHING and become GOOD STEWARDS by obtaining Offertory Envelopes available in the Marian Hall as a weekly reminder to support your church.
