Two great Lutheran musicians, Bach and Handel, both wrote on the bottom of their compositions "SDG", standing for "Soli Deo Gloria", Latin that means To God Alone the Glory. This is one of the great understandings that emerged from the Reformation: we sinners can do nothing to earn a restored relationship with God. God, in his grace, has done everything. To God alone the glory! [Organ - Pentecost 19]

The third in our Sola Series: Sola Gratia (Grace Alone). This is the source of all that God gives to us. “By grace…” (Ephesians 2:8). It is His forgiveness, His favour, His presence. “When we don’t get what we deserve, it’s a real good thing. When we get what we don’t deserve, its’s a real good thing.” (Newsboys). And then God gives us even more. [Organ - Pentecost 17]

Today we begin the Sola series. "Sola" is Latin for "alone", and there are five “only” terms emerging from the Reformation. We begin with "Sola Scriptura" (Scripture Alone). This is where it all began. And this is how it is meant to continue. (Due to technical issues, there is no recording and no podcast from this service.) [Organ/Choir - Pentecost 15]
