Second Sunday after Epiphany; Commemoration of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Join us on our YouTube channel, First Lutheran Church, San Diego as we celebrate the Second Sunday of Epiphany and The Commemoration of Martyr, Renewer of the Church and Society, The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today we hear God’s voice calling out to Samuel and St. Paul’s insistence that we belong to the Lord, wholly and indivisible. We are found by Jesus and along with the disciples are issued the invitation to follow. This is intersected by the faithful life of Dr. King as we learn again that justice, truth, love, grace, and peace stand on the solid rock of Christ’s church, the gospel of salvation for all.
