The Collect of the Day

Almighty and everlasting God, you govern all things both in heaven and on earth: Mercifully hear the supplications of your people, and in our time grant us your peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Doug Richnow's Retirement Celebration

Join your church family to celebrate the ministry of The Rev. Dr. Doug Richnow at the 9 am and 11 am church services. No Contemporary or Awesome Worship services. After 9 am and 11 am church services, join us for Fiesta de Doug with a complimentary Mexican meal in the Hall Life Center. RSVP for the fiesta at bit.do/DougLunch by February 21.

Prayer Wall

This Lent you are invited to connect with your church through prayer. A prayer wall will be in Sumners Hall. Share your prayer requests and how God has answered your prayers, and watch how your church is lifted up when we pray together.

SJD Cares

This Sunday you are invited to pick up a care package outside the worship spaces or at the Care and Connect center in Sumners Hall. Because your church cares for you. 

Experience Jesus' Last Words

Each Sunday in Lent, our clergy’s sermons will be inspired by one of Jesus’ last words. We dig deep into Forgiveness, Salvation, Relationship, Distress, Abandonment, Reunion, Triumph (the same themes as our Life Group study, The Crucified Life). Join your church family as we follow Jesus during a holy Lent. Email cholt@sjd.org.

John 19:23-27

 

19:23 When the soldiers had crucified Jesus, they took his garments and divided them into four parts, one part for each soldier; also his tunic. But the tunic was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom, 24 so they said to one another, “Let us not tear it, but cast lots for it to see whose it shall be.” This was to fulfill the Scripture which says,

 

“They divided my garments among them,
    and for my clothing they cast lots.”

 

So the soldiers did these things, 25 but standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. 26 When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Woman, behold, your son!” 27 Then he said to the disciple, “Behold, your mother!” And from that hour the disciple took her to his own home.
