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

John the Baptizer Prepares the Way for the Lord 

The voice of the Baptizer cried out in the wilderness:
Prepare the way of the Lord . . .
(Isa. 40:1).
John called the people to be made ready for the Messiah’s coming through repentance,
for “all flesh is grass
(Isa. 40:6).
Now He asks from prison,
Are you the one who is to come . . .?
(Matt. 11:2).
Jesus’ works bear witness that He is.
The sick are made well;
the dead are raised,
and the poor have the Gospel preached to them.
Their iniquity is pardoned;
they have received from the Lord’s hand double forgiveness for all their sins. The “stewards of the mysteries of God
(1 Cor. 4:1)
still deliver Christ’s overflowing forgiveness to the poor in spirit,
comforting God’s people with the word of the Gospel which stands forever. This Gospel produces rejoicing among all those who believe.

Today's Readings

John the Baptizer Points Everyone to the Messiah

The coming of God in all His unveiled power at Mount Sinai
was terrifying to the people of Israel.
The thundering voice of the Lord puts sinners in fear of death
(Deut. 18:15–19).
raised up a prophet like Moses—the Messiah,
the Christ.
God came to His people veiled in human flesh.
The skies poured down the Righteous One from heaven;
the earth opened her womb and
brought forth Salvation (Introit) through the blessed Virgin Mary,
the mother of the Lord
(Luke 1:39–56).
The fruit of her womb is the
very Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world,
the One whose sandal strap John was not worthy to loose
(John 1:19–28).
In Jesus we are delivered from fear and anxiety.
In Him alone we have the peace of God which surpasses all understanding (Phil. 4:4–7).

Today's Readings

The Word of the Lord Is Fulfilled in the Flesh of Jesus

Though Ahaz would not ask,
the Lord gives a sign to the house of David,
“the Virgin shall conceive and bear a Son,
and shall call His name Immanuel”
(Is. 7:14).
With this promise,
He signifies that salvation is by His grace alone;
it is no work or achievement of man,
but the Lord’s own work and free gift.
The promise is fulfilled as
the Son of God is conceived and born of the Virgin Mary,
and the sign is received in faith
by the house of David in the person of Joseph
(Matt. 1:20–24).
“Incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary”
(Nicene Creed),
God is with us (Immanuel) in the flesh of Jesus,
Mary’s Son.
Joseph believes that Word of God
and so demonstrates a marvelous example in his immediate
and quiet obedience,
taking Mary to be his wife and caring for her in faith and love.
He loves her because the love of God is manifest in this,
“the Father has sent His Son to be the Savior of the world,”
“to be the propitiation for our sins”
(1 John 4:9–10).

Today's Readings

The Living and Life-Giving Word of God Dwells among Us in the Flesh

In the beginning God created all things through His Word,
His Son. 
But man fell into sin,
and with man all creation was cursed.
God spoke His Word again,
this time into the womb of the blessed Virgin Mary.
The glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle of our human nature
(Ex. 40:17–21, 34–38).
The Word became flesh and dwelt among us
(John 1:1–14).
  The Son of God took on our flesh and blood
and died on the cross in order that we
might receive the right to become the children of God through faith.
Baptized into Christ’s body,
we are made partakers of a new Genesis,
the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit
(Titus 3:4–7).
In Christ, the kindness and love of God
our Savior toward man has truly appeared.

Today's Readings

The Seed of David Comes to His Temple

A Rod has come forth from the stem of Jesse
(Is. 11:1–5)
—the Seed of David whose kingdom shall be established forever
(2 Sam. 7:1–16).
In the fullness of time,
God sent forth His Son Jesus to redeem us from the judgment of the Law
(Gal. 4:1–7).
Now He is presented in the temple in fulfillment of the Law
and revealed to be
a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel
(Luke 2:22–40).
Christ has enlightened us in baptism,
giving us to be adopted as sons of God and heirs of eternal life.
Receiving the Holy Sacrament of His body and blood,
we are prepared to depart this world in peace,
for our eyes have seen the salvation of God in Him.
