Tenth Sunday after Trinity
5 August 2018
And Jesus entered the temple and began
to drive out those who sold,
saying to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a den of robbers.” And he was teaching daily in the temple.
St. Luke 19.45-47
Jesus Weeps for Jerusalem
Our Lord wept over Jerusalem for the destruction that would soon come upon her. For she did not recognize the time of God’s visitation in Christ, who had come to bring her peace (St. Luke 19.41–48). Through His prophets God had consistently called His people to turn from their deceit and false worship. “But My people do not know the judgments of the Lord” (Jeremiah 8.4–12). They sought to establish their own righteousness rather than receive Christ’s righteousness through faith So it was that God was in His temple to cleanse it, a precursor to the once-for-all cleansing from sin which He would accomplish in the temple of His own body on the cross. God grant us to know the things that make for our peace—His visitation in the Word and Sacraments—that by the Holy Spirit we may penitently confess “Jesus is Lord” (1 Corinthians 12.1–11).
Altar Flowers are given to the glory of God by Dr. & Mrs. Frank Acker in honor of their fiftieth wedding anniversary.

Remember to take home your Bulletin and Parish News each week to use as a reminder of events at Immanuel, and as a resource for Daily Prayer. If you must be absent from Divine Service, use the Parish News as posted on the website for the weekly Psalm and daily Scripture lessons.
During the hymn to depart, please turn and face the processional crucifix as it leaves the Nave. If you are leaving through the south side door after the service is over, wait until the procession and hymn are completed to depart, remaining in your pew to sing the hymn. Only those exiting through the Narthex should leave the pew, as they follow the procession. Thank you for your attention and reverence for God’s Word. Pastor Sutton.
