The Eighth Sunday after Pentecost July 15, 2018 + 9:00 A.M.
Welcome to the Lord’s Day. The head of John the Baptist is presented as a gift to a girl, foreshadowing the cross of Christ that is to come. And yet the puppet King Herod is still uneasy. He knew John was a righteous man, and that the word he spoke was true. In hearing about Jesus, Herod knows that this Word can never die, and that the earthly kingdom that he was convinced he had power over is passing away. It is being consumed by the inauguration of a new kingdom that neither he nor anyone else can control. In the Holy Spirit this kingdom can even conquer death!
