Before since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our "God is a consuming fire."
Hebrews 12:28-29

LIFE THOUGHT FOR TODAY

Life issues like surprise pregnancy and terminal diagnosis cast long shadows. Sometimes our mortal eyes only behold despair and death in such circumstances. But our Lord Jesus loves nothing more than lost causes (Ezekiel 37:5-6). He walks hope into the darkest valley, and where our resolve ends, His resurrection begins. Trusting His presence and promise and power takes hold of a life not even crisis or cancer can touch (John 11:25).

 

SPECIAL TV PROGRAMS DURING HOLY WEEK

Special programming for Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday, April 5.  Palm Sunday will be a one-hour tour of the Holy Land.  The documentary "The Holy Land-The Eternal Rock Tour" will air for the entire hour replacing the “This is the Life” segment and the local worship service.  The documentary shows the locations where many Biblical events occurred.  Easter Sunday, Rev.

FROM LUTHERANS FOR LIFE - ASSISTED SUICIDE?

“[T]hat the works of God might be displayed in him” (John 9:3). Wondrous honor He has given to our every affliction, even the fiercest ones. The Jesus Who has borne our sicknesses and carried our sorrows incarnates our pains unto salvation. Why consider assisted suicide when our discomforts afford us front-row seats to witness the movements of the Almighty – and the privilege of participating firsthand?

 

US (“Judea") 

FROM “OUR” SEMINARIAN

Dear friends and sponsors, During our time at seminary, we’ve shared much of our life with you. Our time at seminary has been marked by periods of incredible joy, but also hardship. This past January was one of the hardest months that we’ve experienced at seminary. One of Kevin’s closest friends took his own life the last week of January. Kevin had a chance to speak at his funeral, and to share Christ with some of his friends and family, but the pain of losing a friend to suicide is still very fresh. Shortly after this, during our second ultrasound visit, we found  out that our unborn baby had died. We don’t have words for how that feels. The grief from a miscarriage is something we hoped that we would never have to go through, but as we mourn the death of our unborn child, we ask for continued prayers for us. Death is never an easy thing to experience. But in both deaths, a suicide and a miscarriage, the senselessness of it, and the tragedy reminds us of what the Scriptures say about death. Death is the final enemy to be defeated. Death is never a good thing. It was never part of God’s plan, and it came into the world as a result of sin. But through the death of Jesus came life. Because of our hope in his resurrection, we believe that one day death will be abolished for good. As Paul reminds us in Romans, we wait eagerly for that day when all of creation will be liberated from the pain of decay. This is our hope, and in sadness, we are reminded every day of our need for Jesus, our Savior. We ask that you continue to keep our family in prayer. This is a difficult season for us. The sadness of the death that we’ve experienced is still very real. Thank you all for your kind letters, financial support, and spiritual encouragement. In Christ, Kevin, Sam, and Bear Scott
