BONUS: A Sermon for the 7th Sunday after Trinity
A brief sermon for the 7th Sunday after Trinity. Here are the readings:Genesis 2:7-17, ESVThen the Lord God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living creature. And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there he put the man whom he had formed. And out of the ground the Lord God made to spring up every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.A river flowed out of Eden to water the garden, and there it divided and became four rivers. The name of the first is the Pishon. It is the one that flowed around the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold. And the gold of that land is good; bdellium and onyx stone are there. The name of the second river is the Gihon. It is the one that flowed around the whole land of Cush. And the name of the third river is the Tigris, which flows east of Assyria. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it. And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”Romans 6:19-23, ESVI am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations. For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification.For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.Mark 8:1-9, ESVJesus Feeds the Four ThousandIn those days, when again a great crowd had gathered, and they had nothing to eat, he called his disciples to him and said to them, “I have compassion on the crowd, because they have been with me now three days and have nothing to eat. And if I send them away hungry to their homes, they will faint on the way. And some of them have come from far away.” And his disciples answered him, “How can one feed these people with bread here in this desolate place?” And he asked them, “How many loaves do you have?” They said, “Seven.” And he directed the crowd to sit down on the ground. And he took the seven loaves, and having given thanks, he broke them and gave them to his disciples to set before the people; and they set them before the crowd. And they had a few small fish. And having blessed them, he said that these also should be set before them. And they ate and were satisfied. And they took up the broken pieces left over, seven baskets full. And there were about four thousand people. And he sent them away.Music by JuliusH EVER wonder what I use to record all this stuff?Buzzsprout - Let's get your podcast launched! Record Your Podcast With Riverside! Samson Q2U MicrophoneInnoGear Boom ArmSupport the show

Are Baptists better than Lutherans?
In this episode, my Dear Brother in Christ Stuart Keenan comes on to discuss what it was like to grow up Baptist, and the ways in which they get things right that Lutherans sometimes get wrong. We should never grow complacent in our faith, and there are many things we can learn from other expressions of Christianity that can benefit us.

Out of the wilderness with Tabby Edwards
Listen along as I talk with Tabitha Edwards about her journey through the wilderness, and how she came out of Charismatic and New Age beliefs into the comforting arms of Christ. Tabby grew up Charismatic, watching word of faith televangelists, and that led her down a path of polytheism, new age ideas, and all sorts of dangerous places. Eventually our Lord Jesus found her and brought her into the Lutheran Church, where she has found great peace and comfort.I hope her story is inspirational to you, and I hope you learn a lot from it!EVER wonder what I use to record all this stuff?Buzzsprout - Let's get your podcast launched! Record Your Podcast With Riverside! Samson Q2U MicrophoneInnoGear Boom ArmSupport the show
