The Third Sunday after Pentecost
The Presentation of the Augsburg Confession

+++++++

The confessional statements that were prepared by Lutheran theologians and signed by Lutheran princes to present at a Diet (meeting) called by Emperor Charles V at Augsburg in 1530, contain some of the clearest statements ever written of the Scriptural truths that the Lutheran Reformation restored to the church.  The willingness of those Lutheran princes to take a stand on the truth of God's Word also makes it one of the most important events on the time line of the Reformation.  This year, the fact that this day falls on a Sunday in the year we are celebrating the 500th anniversary of Luther's posting of his 95 theses, gives us another opportunity to focus on the Scriptural truths that define who we are and what we teach as Lutherans.  Note:  Copies of the Augsburg Confession are available in the narthex.

++++++++
For this season of Pentecost we are focusing on lessons from Matthew's Gospel in which Jesus teaches us about what life is really like for us when we live as his children in a world that is often opposed to his truth.  Each of the following lessons will give us a "reality check" about our Christian lives.
