Kingdom People Produce Kingdom Fruit

The first Sunday in October is traditionally set aside for the observation of LWML Sunday, but it may be celebrated at any time. 

The theme for LWML Sunday 2020 is based on Jesus’ words to the chief priests and Pharisees found in Matthew 21:43 that … The kingdom of God will be … given to a people producing its fruits. As people of the kingdom of God, God graciously nurtures us and generously gives us everything we need to produce fruit for the kingdom during the fruit-bearing season of our lives. In response to God’s grace and empowered by the Holy Spirit through Word and Sacrament, Kingdom People (in the LWML) Produce Kingdom Fruit for the season of our whole life on this earth.
