The Gospel Notes for Septuagesima of the One-Year Lectionary from the Lutheran Service Book is now available. You may download the Color PDF, the Black and White PDF, the Bi-Fold Color PDF, or the Bi-Fold Black and White PDF.
The bi-fold version is a “booklet form” that folds and inserts nicely inside a standard bulletin. The standard version can be printed double-sided on a 8 1/2 x 11″ sheet, and possibly folded as well for distribution through bulletins, or put on the narthex table for distribution.

O Lord, graciously hear the prayers of Your people that we who justly suffer the consequence of our sin may be mercifully delivered by Your goodness to the glory of Your name; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
