Third Sunday after Pentecost
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
This Sunday we will be taking some time to look back upon this COVID year. It has been 15 months since we were able to meet together in the sanctuary with any sense of normalcy and much has happened. Nothing is quite the same anymore and no one is quite sure what “normal” means. One thing is for sure and that is people of faith are equipped to look squarely at the past while simultaneously being boldly invited into the future.
Pat Lindquist and Beth Slevcove will help lead us into reflection on this year of lost opportunity, lost loved ones, and lost moments. In the language of faith, we lament. Using the Psalms, scripture, and song we will take stock of these days past so that we might be ready for God’s tomorrow.
Join us on the patio for this last Sunday in the sun. My predictor indicates it will be a lovely morning!
You may find the worship at our First Lutheran, San Diego YouTube Channel. The bulletin is available below.

A Service of Remembrance, Repentance, and Reflection for the Emmanuel Nine Martyrs and Juneteenth
Join us this Thursday, June 17, at 7:00 p.m. for a Zoom worship of Remembrance, Repentance, and Reflection for the Emmanuel Nine Martyrs and Juneteenth. You may remember that six years ago a young white-supremecist was welcomed into a bible study at Emmanuel African Methodist Episcopal church in Charleston, S.C. Afterwards he took out a gun and shot them, killing nine. You may also remember that two of the attending pastors attended our ELCA Southern Seminary in Columbia, NC, and the gunman was Confirmed at an ELCA congregation.
TJ Tallie, PhD, will offer a meditation. Dr. Tallie is a professor of history at USD specializing in African Colonial History. He is a member of the First Lutheran community and a direct descendent of Texan slaves who first learned of their freedom when the Emancipation Proclamation was read to them on June 19th, 1885, some two years after it was issued.
First Lutheran is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
Topic: Remembrance, Repentance, and Reflection
