Psalm 130

1 A Song of Ascents. Out of the depths I cry to thee, O LORD!

2 Lord, hear my voice! Let thy ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications!
3 If thou, O LORD, shouldst mark iniquities, Lord, who could stand?
4 But there is forgiveness with thee, that thou mayest be feared.
5 I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in his word I hope;

6 my soul waits for the LORD more than watchmen for the morning,
more than watchmen for the morning.
7 O Israel, hope in the LORD!
For with the LORD there is steadfast love,
and with him is plenteous redemption.
8 And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities.
This is an amazing short psalm. The psalm moves powerfully and beautifully from despair to hope. In brief it sums up our human condition and GodÂ’s own desire for us.
“With [God] there is plenteous redemption,” Starting with this Sunday we commemorate and celebrate this plenteous redemption.
Palm Sunday we will have the liturgy of the palms and reading of the passion. This starts our Holy Week observance. We will be joining with Immanuel Lutheran Church for our Holy Week Services. I will be preaching at the Maundy Thursday service and Tripp will be singing with the choir and cantoring for the services, and Kate and Trish will be reading Scriptures for the Easter Vigil. We will have our Easter day service at our usual time it will be an Evensong with Eucharist.
Our Holy Week Schedule of services are as follow:

Maundy Thursday 7:30 PM
Good Friday 7:30 PM
Holy Saturday Easter 8:30 PM

We are also planning a church party for April 22nd at 7:30 PM at the apartment of the Community of the Holy Trinity. Come and fellowship with us celebraEasterter, invite your friends and we will hang out with good food drink and conversation.
God is good let us wait on the Lords mercy and celebrate together God's plenteous redemption.
In Christ
