This Is the Sabbath of the Lord

at Saint Peter Lutheran Church

This day -- this Saturday -- is the Sabbath of the Lord. On this day the followers of Jesus rested, in agony and in grief, not knowing what was to come.

It is not a day of rest, however, for those of us who are preparing to lead God's people tomorrow morning. To all of you who are making ready for the Vigil, or for Easter Sunday celebrations: may God bless your preparation and your proclamation.

He is risen indeed!
