All of the congregation at Trinity Lutheran want to say how much we appreciate the Ava Fire Department and Ava Rural Fire Department, and every one of you firefighters, for a great job and a job well done in saving our church from the fire.
On this 3rd Sunday in Lent we began with the Bible readings as follows: Exodus 17: 1-7, Psalm 95 and the New Testament Romans 5:1-11; Gospel: John 4:5-42.
Our lector was Rev. Bob Crofton.
Pastor Wayne Strohschein’s sermon today was based on the lesson John 4:5-42, the story of Jesus meeting the Samaritan woman at the well outside of town. He used the metaphor of a dance to illustrate how Jesus chose this ostracized woman of questionable character to partner with awakening faith that she had heard of but yet did know in her heart and spirit.
After her encounter with Jesus she was so filled with the conviction he was the Savior of the world she went into town to tell all to come and meet him for themselves, which they did.
Jesus has chosen us to be his dance partner. Who do we chose to share the good news with? In a familiar hymn we call him “The Lord of The Dance.” Come, let us dance with the Lord our Savior.
