Calling All Sinners!

Share This Post

We’re tackling the Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector in today’s conversation as Jesus continues to illustrated what he meant in saying, “Whoever seeks to preserve their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life will keep it.”

Two men go to the temple to pray, one who thinks they’re excellent at the law and another who pleads to God to be merciful.

Sarah teaches Adam and I in this week’s text: what it means to be humbled, how this comparison echos Cain and Abel, and what faith is.

Adam and Mason ask:

– When have you felt contempt?

– How are you humbled?

– Why are tax collectors so bad?

Pastor’s Perspective: Lectionary Studies

A large part of our mission at Luther House of Study is to support pastors and provide resources to congregations. This is fulfilled through a variety of educational offerings, and we are always looking for new ways to innovate and reach new audiences. 

Reflecting on Proclamation in the Prairie

In January, we hosted our Proclamation in the Prairie event — an annual two-day conference featuring fellowship, worship, brunch, and of course, teaching sessions. 

We are grateful to have had this opportunity to worship together and to teach about Luther’s evangelical breakthrough of the righteousness of God.
