In the Lutheran Church, we follow a pattern of readings each Sunday. These readings are not chosen at random, but have been selected and organized by the generations of faithful Christians who have gone ahead of us. Some of the readings are difficult, but this challenge is what helps us to grow and be strengthened in the faith.
According to our Lord’s will, it seems that another time to be refined and strengthened is upon us. To help both anchor us and chart our passage through these choppy waters, we at St. John’s and Grace Evangelical Lutheran churches invite you to join for a time of devotion each day at 6 p.m. Central Standard Time. These devotions will be hosted by our pastor over Facebook Live. Simply click this link, or search Facebook for “St. John’s and Grace Evangelical Lutheran Parish” to join in.
