“What does this mean: I believe that Jesus Christ, true God, begotten of the Father from eternity, and also true man, born of the Virgin Mary, is my Lord,
who has redeemed me, a lost and condemned person, purchased and won me from all sins, from death, and from the power of the devil; not with gold or silver but with His holy precious blood and with his innocent suffering and death,
that I may be His own and live under Him in His kingdom and serve Him in everlasting righteousness, innocence, and blessedness,
just as he is risen from the dead, lives and reigns to all eternity.
THIS IS MOST CERTAINLY TRUE.”
And from Bror Ericksons's sermon:
Collect: "Have mercy on us that with you as our Ruler and Guide we may pass through things temporal that we lose not the things eternal."
Amen to that, too.
Where are the Propers in the LSB? I can't find them. We always get them printed out. Yesterday, I went to a Lutheran church that had no collect.
