Convention Sermon by the Rev. Robert F. Selle:
A Parable of Purple
From PresidentMary Harrington
“and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.” Eph. 5:2
LWML Sunday is typically celebrated the first Sunday in October, which would be October 5th this year. Congregations across the North Wisconsin District and around the world will be using this opportunity to celebrate the mission work that LWML has done and continues to do. Rev. Victor Belton has written a worship service that can be used for LWML Sunday. He was the proclaimer at the Convention Sunday worship service in Pittsburgh; perhaps you had an opportunity to hear him there. There are many resources available at www. lwml.org and click on “events.”
On our NWD LWML website www.nwdlwml.org, you can find a poster to download that lists our Mission Grants for the 2014-2016 biennium. Zone presidents will also be receiving a copy at the fall rallies. Put a basket of $100 Grand candy bars out on the coffee counter that morning to call attention to our mission grant goal of $100,000.
Share an invitation with the women of your congregation to join Bible studies that are starting this fall. A personal invitation is much better than an announcement in the bulletin - although, please do both!
Take time to pray for your LWML sisters this day and every day. Perhaps a visit to the nursing home or assisted living facility is appropriate on LWML Sunday to visit that OWR - Old Woman Rep , who is a woman from your society who has faithfully worked in the church kitchen or led Bible study or sewed quilts, or any number of mission-minded tasks of the LWML. She would love to see you!
Serve the Lord with Gladness and continue to send up those fragrant offerings.
