Online Worship Service
Worship LIVE with Holy Cross Lutheran
Please plan to join us for worship via Zoom this Sunday as Pastor Anne Morawski proclaims good news during the sermon time and presides over Holy Communion. As always, we’ll share children’s time, sing praises to God together, pray with one another, and confess our shared faith. We’ll share a digital coffee and check-in time following worship. We hope to see you via Zoom this Sunday, peace and prayers today
Theme for Worship
God’s word is like the rain that waters the earth and brings forth vegetation. It is also like the sower who scatters seed indiscriminately. Our lives are like seeds sown in the earth. Even from what appears to be little, dormant, or dead, God promises a harvest. At the Lord’s table we are fed with the bread of life, that we may bear fruit in the world.
First Reading: Isaiah 55:10-13
God’s word to Israel’s exiles is as sure and effective as never-failing precipitation. Their return to the Holy Land in a new exodus is cheered on by singing mountains and by trees that clap their hands.
Gospel: Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23
In Matthew’s gospel, both Jesus and his disciples “sow the seed” of God’s word by proclaiming the good news that “the kingdom of heaven is near.” Now, in a memorable parable, Jesus explains why this good news produces different results in those who hear.
