Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

The gospel text for tomorrow is once again addressing a tremendously practical issue in our daily Christian lives: worry, anxiety, and fear.
Have you ever noticed how much better you feel when you are in the middle of feeling anxious and someone tells you, “Don’t worry!” Sometimes this kind of “encouragement” just makes matters worse.
Jesus our Lord does not do that, but he leads us to carefully examine how to know exactly why we don’t have to worry, but even at that, that is not all He says. He leads us to see the other side of the ledger. It is a different view which does more than simply “take our mind off things,” but presents to us a glorious alternative.
This is what the proclamation is about tomorrow morning.
Come also to receive the Holy Sacrament for the forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation!
Also, tomorrow we commence a new adult Bible Study with Dr. Bret Taylor on the Divine Call, a most appropriate topic in this season of our life together as a congregation! Thank you Dr. Taylor!
During the adult study, I’d like to invite the pre-confirmation group and even older youth to join me in the conference room. I will speak to them about “The Problem of Evil.” Many of our youth are exposed to one of the most popular atheistic arguments against God: the fact that evil exists. We will equip our children to know how to stand against this argument.
In Jesus’ Love,
Pastor Espinosa
