Merciful God, You are slow to anger and abounding in love. Forgive me my sins, where I have done wrong, and grant me rest, that I may begin next week renewed by Your Word. Amen.

                            
Meet Vicar Martin Dressler

 He is living at the vicarage residence at 324 Jackson, just south of the church.  His phone number is 519-0325. 

Martin was born and raised in North Carolina and attended Concordia College, Bronxville, New York.  While at Concordia, he spent one semester studying at Westfield House of Cambridge University, where he became fully convinced he wanted to study for the pastoral ministry.  After three years in New York, he enrolled at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, his first experience in the Midwest.

When he learned of his vicarage placement here, he wrote:  “I am very much looking forward to learning the culture of Indiana and its residents.  As a vicar, I will do my very best to learn and serve in the spirit of humility becoming a servant of the Lord.  I hope and pray that I will be able to meet your expectations.  Once again, thank you for this opportunity, and may God bless this upcoming year.”

God's Word This Week     

ELEVENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
(31 July 2016)

Ecclesiastes 1:2, 12–14; 2:18–26
Colossians 3:1–11
Luke 12:13–21

 
Faith in Christ Is Rich toward God
 
To live for earthly things “is vanity and a striving after wind,” and work that is driven by such vanity “is an unhappy business” (Eccl. 1:13–14). The man who lives like that has nothing to show for “all the toil and striving of heart with which he toils beneath the sun … all his days are full of sorrow” (Eccl. 2:22–23). So, too, your “covetousness, which is idolatry” (Col. 3:5), makes a god out of that which cannot give you life or happiness. For “one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions” (Luke 12:15). But “Christ who is your life” (Col. 3:4), in giving you Himself, gives you all the wealth of heaven. Instead of striving to lay up treasures for yourself, be “rich toward God” in Him (Luke 12:21).
