Rev. Charles Svendsen

Pastor Charles' Warmup: It is so important to say "thank you" to God, family, friends and even strangers. The psalmist gives thanks to the Lord because God is good. Even under the harsh conditions of exile, loneliness and
destroyed homeland, the people of God gave thanks. When Jesus cleansed the ten lepers one (and only one) returned to give thanks. It has been said that all ten lepers were grateful, but only one "said so." I wish to thank you, the beloved people of WPC, for these past two years of transitional ministry. You have been kind and gracious to me amid the challenges of change. Blessings to you as you begin this next chapter of your ministry in Christ's name. See you in worship this Sunday morning - traditional service (9:30) or contemporary (11:15)

Scripture: Psalm 107:1-9; Luke 17:11-19
Psalm 107: 1-9
O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, those he redeemed from trouble
and gathered in from the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south.
Some wandered in desert wastes, finding no way to an inhabited town;
hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted within them.
Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress;
he led them by a straight way, until they reached an inhabited town.
Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wonderful works to humankind.
For he satisfies the thirsty, and the hungry he fills with good things.

Luke 17:11-19
On the way to Jerusalem Jesus was going through the region between Samaria and Galilee. As he entered a village, ten lepers approached him. Keeping their distance, they called out, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” When he saw them, he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were made clean. Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice. He prostrated himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him. And he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus asked, “Were not ten made clean? But the other nine, where are they? Was none of them found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” Then he said to him, “Get up and go on your way; your faith has made you well.”
