Note:  The following sermon, by Dr. James Baneck, President of the North Dakota District of the LCMS, entitled “The Servant’s Body,” was preached as part of the opening devotion September 15, 2012 for the meeting of the Council of Presidents just concluded. Christ has redeemed us body and soul, preparing us for service in His name. The sermon, based on the lessons for Proper 19, Series B, especially the Old Testament Lesson, is written in outline form but should be reasonably easy to follow. With President Baneck’s permission, we reproduce it here.  Blessings!  + Herb Mueller
