"For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only this, but we also exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation."
The Lutheran Church of Our Savior believes this 'Good News' and rejoices that Christ was born for us and died for us. The angel said to Joseph, "you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins." Matthew 1:21
For this we are thankful.

Season of the Church Year: Time Of the Church
Our Lord has ascended into heaven, and poured out His Spirit on human flesh to give birth to the Church on Pentecost.
The First Sunday after Pentecost begins the Time Of The Church, it is also known as the Sunday of the Holy Trinity. This feast is a celebration of the mystery of the holy, triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the one God who reveals Himself in three persons.
During The Time Of The Church the focus is on Christ and His teaching, and how it is applied to the church. We learn that God's Word is not chained. The Word crosses all human borders and barriers to create faith in Christ, and His unearned, unmerited, undeserved mercy for sinners. This truth sets us free from bondage and opens up heaven for us. While we live with the effects of sin in this fallen world, we commend our lives to the Lord who sustains us.
We continually pray, "Help, save, comfort, and defend us gracious Lord."
A number of festival days are celebrated during this time.
Reformation Day and All Saints Day are two of them. We celebrate the Reformation principle that we are saved by God's grace through faith in Christ as the central truth of Scripture. And we celebrate those who "came out of the great tribulation: they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb."
Then the focus turns to the coming of Christ's kingdom.
The last Sunday after Pentecost is called the Sunday Of The Fulfillment or Christ The King Sunday. It points us to Christ's second coming when all things come under the reign of the one King. We now await the end of time when our Lord will gather the faithful to celebrate "the marriage feast of the lamb in His kingdom" which has no end.
