Mount Olive welcomes Rev. Dr. Maj. (ret) Harold Ristau visiting guest preacher from Concordia Lutheran Theological Seminary, St. Catharines who was in Regina as the presenter for the 2019 Saskatchewan School Break Higher Things Retreat. The text for the Sermon, Matthew 11:25–30, is the text appointed for the commemoration and festival of the St. Matthias (February 24th).
At that time Jesus declared, “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was Your gracious will. All things have been handed over to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him. Come to Me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” (Matthew 11:25-30 ESV)
