We are a member congregation of the Lutheran Church Canada - East District.


Members at Our Saviour experiencing the forgiveness and love of Christ strive to live out the command of Jesus to, "Love one another" both among our membership and the wider community of Northwest Toronto. The strength to love and forgive comes from being rooted in the Word of God and faithful reception of His Sacraments. We believe that God is present with us each Sunday and his guiding nurturing hand is upon our Sunday School, Bible Classes, mission outreach and fellowship events. What a blessing!

Today's Readings

Jesus Makes Fishers of Men

The Lord called fishermen to be fishers of men
(Luke 5:1–11).
The net they would use is the message of the cross,
which is foolishness and a stumbling block to the world
(1 Cor. 1:18–25).
The power of God to save is not in spectacular
signs like wind and fire and earthquakes
(1 Kings 19:11–21),
nor is it to be found in human intelligence and wisdom.
The power of God to save comes in the still,
small voice of the preaching of Christ crucified.
In worldly darkness the disciples could catch nothing.
But in the light of Christ,
whose Word was attached to the water,
the boats were filled with fish.
So it is that in Baptism you have been
drawn in to the ship of the Church.
Though the nets are breaking
and some who hear the Word do not believe,
pastors continue to cast the net of the Gospel and the Sacraments,
that Christians may abide in the boat of the Church
and that we may be ready to give a defense
to everyone who asks a reason for the hope that is in us
(1 Peter 3:8–15).

Gospel Reading

Luke 5: 1-11

Jesus Calls the First Disciples

5 On one occasion, while the crowd was pressing in on him to hear the word of God, he was standing by the lake of Gennesaret, 2 and he saw two boats by the lake, but the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets. 3 Getting into one of the boats, which was Simon's, he asked him to put out a little from the land. And he sat down and taught the people from the boat. 4 And when he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” 5 And Simon answered, “Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets.” 6 And when they had done this, they enclosed a large number of fish, and their nets were breaking. 7 They signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. 8 But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord.” 9 For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish that they had taken, 10 and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men.” 11 And when they had brought their boats to land, they left everything and followed him.

Today's Readings

Our Only Hope Is in Christ’s Righteousness

Unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes
and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven

(Matt 5:20).
God demands nothing less than perfection
and holiness from you in regard to His commandments
(Ex. 20:1–17).
Your only hope,
is not in your own goodness but in the goodness of Christ,
who did not come to destroy the Law and the Prophets,
but to fulfill them for you.
In Christ, your righteousness does indeed exceed
that of the scribes and Pharisees.
For you have been baptized into Christ’s death
and your sinful nature crucified.
he who has died has been freed from sin
(Rom. 6:1–11).
You are now raised with Christ to walk in
newness of life and to share in His resurrection on the Last Day.
Christ has brought you through the baptismal sea
out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery
(Ex. 20:2).
consider yourselves dead to sin
and alive to God in Christ Jesus

(Rom. 6:11).
