The end is near. There is no doubt about it. The warnings are dire. The tone of this coming Sundays texts is ominous. But the baptized know how to live in the “meantimes.” The baptized are strengthened for the living of these days in word and sacrament. The baptized rally around the invitation of the apostle: “Brothers and sisters, do not be weary in doing what is right.”
Texts for this Sunday:
that with you as our ruler and guide,
we may live through what is temporary without losing what is eternal,
through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.

The annual Service of Remembrance, which honors and remembers all those who have lost or taken their lives because they were gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, or were perceived to be so, will be held on Sunday, November 7, 2010, at 4 pm at St. Johns Lutheran Church at 1701 L Street in downtown Sacramento. During this time of a renewed focus on bullying and suicides, it is more important than ever to remember those we have lost. The Service has been organized annually by PFLAG for the last 15+ years, but due to a number of factors was not going to be held this year. Community members are stepping in to continue this very important tradition for our community, and we are asking for help in getting the word out for this multi-faith service. Sponsoring organizations to date include PFLAG Sacramento, the Sacramento Gay and Lesbian Community Center, and the Sacramento Region LGBTQI Leadership Coalition.
