Under the Cross: There's No Shame in Baptism
by Katie Hill on August 17th, 2020
When it comes to shame, that's our worst fear. I don't want anyone to see it. I'd rather talk about looking humble. I'd rather talk about why it's not my fault. I still feel like trash, but I can at least pretend that nobody sees it. Except God does. He rips it open for all to see. He hangs it on a cross for you. Jesus bore it there for you.

Host: George Borghardt A Blessed Mary the Mother of God Day to you! We love Mary as Lutherans and we should celebrate her, the reason we should, is because, she is the Mother of God. Mary is at her best when she is giving us a picture of her son. Mary in her own way points us to the church. Mary is an incredible witness to the faith. She is faithful and watches her Lord and Son die on the cross fo...
Dean's List: Your Suffering God
by Katie Hill on August 13th, 2020
But Jesus doesn't just deal with death from the outside, like a doctor who heals his patients, though Jesus is the Great Physician. No, Jesus gets His hands dirty.
Musica Sacra: The Church Musician in You
by Katie Hill on August 5th, 2020
The Gospel comes to us extra nos, meaning "from outside of us," just as music enters our ears to calm our sadness and turn it into joy. Luther said that next to the Word of God, music deserves the highest praise. It comes to us as a gift, just like the Gospel. Through faith, music is our prayer for peace, our bold confession, and our desperate plea for mercy that cries out, "God, be merciful to me, a sinner."

Host: George Borghardt Happy Altar Guild Day! Today’s reading talks about the women (Joanna, Mary, Salomi) and Nicodemus who went to the tomb early on the first day of the week. They’re goal was to care for what they believed to be Christ’s dead body, but the tomb’s stone has already been rolled away and Christ has risen! These people give us an insight into how it means to serve the Lord in His a...

Host: George Borghardt A Blessed Mary, Martha, and Lazarus of Bethany Day to you! We as Lutheran can learn a lot from all 3 of them. From Martha we learn and get a glimpse of how to serve Jesus.
