Rev. Al Colver preached at the LCMS International Center on Joshua 24:14-28 yesterday a "sermon focused on Ebed Yahweh, "the servant of the Lord," Jesus who came to serve us. Because He has served us through his death and resurrection, we receive his forgiving gifts which spill out onto our neighbor. Jesus is our Joshua who led us through the waters of baptism into eternal life."
(You can see other unrelated material about Day 1 here. And rest assured, one of these days I will get back to posting my own meditations on TDP. Like about how August 31 had the beauty of pairing the widow's giving to Elijah with that of the Macedonian congregation's giving through Paul to Jerusalem's Christians. But I'm just back from Doxology again, after a summer interupted by vacations, and a lot of offline work needs attending to for the parishes.)
