The weekly sermon isn’t the pastor’s story, it’s the story of Jesus risen from the dead for you.
If all you hear from the pulpit each week is politics, moralizing, and life-lessons then you’re probably starving for some good news. Don’t go hungry.
Lutherans believe that Jesus Christ sets the agenda for what the pastor should preach. Jesus himself said, “Feed my sheep.” He also said, “Preach the gospel.” The gospel is good news—not good advice, good morals, or good ideas. As a Lutheran church, we won’t starve you with more commands to do this or do that, we’ll feed you with the Savior who forgives the very people who don’t keep the commands of God. So feast your ears on some good news at Bethany Lutheran.
