First Sunday After Pentecost - 5/31/2015
“A Child Deeply Loved” - Hosea 11


"True piety does not consist in a fear which willingly indeed flees God's judgment, but since it cannot escape is terrified. True piety consists rather in a sincere feeling which loves God as Father as much as it fears and reverences him as Lord, embraces his righteousness, and dreads offending him worse than death."

— John Calvin,
First Catechism (1537)
