This Sunday at Bethel
—17th Sunday after Pentecost, Sept. 11, 2016
What was it about the one lost sheep that made the shepherd leave the 99 and go after it (Luke 15:1-10)? Was it the cutest, or the smartest, or the one with fluffiest coat?
No, what mattered to the shepherd was just that the sheep was lost.
St. Paul knew that God had sought him out when he was lost and actively persecuting the church. If God could find him, God could find anybody. “And I received mercy . . . and the grace of the Lord overflowed for me” (1 Timothy 1:14).
The adult class “Four Gospels, One Faith” begins this week. It meets at 8:45.
