Welcome! Today we return to the beginning of Jesus’ ministry for the salvation of all mankind. We find Him in the Jordan River baptized by John. A baptism to fulfill all Scripture and to officially institute Jesus as Son and Messiah of God. He hears His Father say exactly who He is. "You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased. Then, "The Spirit immediately drove Him out into the wilderness...tempted by Satan." Some way to treat one’s "well beloved"! You, dear friend, are also "well beloved" of God. He "works together all things" for your ultimate good, including the trials and temptations you endure. He is building you up through tribulations of all kinds that you may be found in Him, pure and holy. Just as He loves Jesus so He loves you! Listen to Jesus: "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the Gospel." It’s Lent. May you be blessed by knowing forgiveness through the repentance of faith. See you Wednesday.
WELCOME! TODAY IS TRANSFIGURATION SUNDAY. We transition into Lent and the great contemplation of our need for repentance and faith on Ash Wednesday, February 14. But today we continue to shine forth the glory of Jesus Christ as True God and Christ. On the mount of Transfiguration Jesus has high and holy conversation with Moses and Elijah. All the Law and the Prophets are met to speak of the upcoming suffering, death, and, most important, the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from death. On the mount of Transfiguration Jesus shines with the glory that is His by right as the Son of God and Word made flesh. He gives the disciples a foretaste of Easter and resurrection life. Peter, stunned and terrified, says, "Tis good, Lord, to be here." And it IS good to be here at CTK in the presence of our risen Savior and Lord Jesus Christ in Word and Sacrament. SDG

IN NOMINE JESU CHRISTI
This year of the Lord 2018 our Church Calendar gives us Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the season of Lent, on Valentine’s Day, February 14. This conjunction of secular and religious calendars is merely coincident. Yet, it is a fortuitous pairing as the day of "hearts and flowers" in conjoined with the day of "sackcloth and ashes." For at the bottom of each holiday is the theme of unconditional love and care. In the case of Ash Wednesday, the unconditional love of Jesus Christ that leads Him to give His very life that we might be saved.
