Rites & Rituals of Sacrifice & Inheritance

Rites & Rituals of Sacrifice & Inheritance

by Good Shepherd Lutheran Church on May 30, 2021

On this Memorial Day, we remember our siblings: the fallen, the wounded, those who put themselves in harm’s way, and the families of those who did so. We remember among them, the fallen one, Jesus Christ, sent by His loving Father in heaven, who loved us so much that he sent his only begotten child to die for us. We remember the sacrifice, redemption, and salvific work Jesus, our joint heir, did on this Memorial Day weekend.
