Sermon for the Day of Mary, Mother of Our Lord

Sermon for the Day of Mary, Mother of Our Lord
“Maria Peregrina: God’s transformation, Our Questions.” Mary, the Mother of our Lord.

August 14, 2022
By: Pr. Sergio Rodriguez

Readings: Lk. 1:46b-47.

My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior (Lk 1:46b-47).” Proclaim with me the greatness of the Lord; Let us exalt God’s name + together. Amen.

God wants you to ask questions! God wants your deep stirring, those thoughts, dreams, and concerns that keep you up at night, and wants to hear you name them out loud. God wants you to ask the What, Where, Why and How we have come along as humanity. In the unexpected and mysterious tidings of the angel Gabriel, even Mary did not leave God’s emissary off the hook when she asked, “How can this be, since I am a virgin? (Lk 1:34)”

Yes, God wants you to ask questions!

Campus Ministry Fall Generosity Letter

Dear Members and Friends of Christ the King Lutheran Church,   

God wants you to ask questions! Lutheran Campus Ministry at Rice University starts the academic year with a lot of spirit. We invite you to join us and to prayerfully consider upcoming activities for your own involvement in this ministry of our church:  

  1. On Sunday, August 21, after worship, at the Rice Village Campus, Lutheran Campus Ministry at Rice will host lunch – a Move-In Taco Celebration. The proceeds of this fundraiser will positively impact the Fall-semester activities of this ministry. An anonymous parishioner is underwriting the expenses of this event. And an anonymous parishioner will match each plate sold dollar for dollar up to 150 plates. Come enjoy lunch for $10/plate (with vegan options available).  
  2. On Saturday, September 3, students of Lutheran Campus Ministry at Rice will travel to St. James Family Life Center to learn about its ministry to immigrant families in Houston and to participate in a food distribution. You are invited to support their distribution by donating the following: cereal, oatmeal, beans, rice, peanut butter, canned fruits, canned mixed veggies, pastas, salt, sugar, flour, tuna, canned soup, macaroni, baby diapers, baby formula, and baby food. We are collecting these items now until September 1 in the church narthexes of the West Campus and Rice Village.
  3. In Late September, Lutheran Campus Ministry at Rice will host the first of our speaker series at Rice University. Our speaker series addresses big question matters in society and faith-filled responses. Look on our Instagram page (lcm_at_rice) and Christ the King website for exact time and date
