The Rock

Sermon Text: Psalm 95:1-9.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, my family and those whom God loves.

Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

Let us pray… Lord God, bless your Word wherever it is proclaimed. Make it a word of power and peace to convert those not yet your own and to confirm those who have come to saving faith. May your Word pass from the ear to the heart, from the heart to the lip, and from the lip to the life that, as you have promised, your Word may achieve the purpose for which you sent it; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.

Pastor Bryan Wolfmueller of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Austin, Texas is one of my favorite pastors to listen to on the Internet. Over the last number of months, he has addressed numerous questions and topics while driving in his car, often from church to home.

I want to begin my message today with a short four minute video clip of Pastor Wolfmueller addressing the topic of the Corona Virus and the Christian Faith (audio archive).
