On this episode of the Shepherdcast, we will be taking a look at Ecclesiastes 1:2, 12-14, 2:18-23, Psalm 49:1-12, Colossians 3:1-11, and the Gospel of Luke 12:13-21, and the Reverend Scott J. Anderson will be discussing the most important commandments of all: to love God and love each other, all in the wake of this week’s events in Ohio (from the happiness of the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Festival in Canton to the sorrow of the mass shooting in Dayton). Today’s episode came from our worship service on Sunday, August 4, 2019. In case you are reading along with a Bible and our readings don’t necessarily match up with yours, we use the NRSV translation of the Holy Bible. Our sermon is delivered by the Reverend Scott J. Anderson. Our lay reader this Sunday was Michelle Ward. Our sound room technician for this Sunday was Jacob Schandel. This podcast was hosted and produced by Jacob H. Schandel for Shepherd of the Valley Evangelical Lutheran Church. To learn more about our church, please visit www.sotvchurch.com, or follow us on social media @sotvsandyville.
