Patriot Day

Today is Patriot Day.

Every year since 9/11/2001 I try to remember the lives that were lost and the lives affected by the terrorist attacks.

I also try to remember that their are forces outside of our country that want us defeated because of the freedoms that we hold dear to our hearts. My thanks go out to the men and women of our Armed Forces that protect us and defend our freedoms.

Get those flags out today! Be proud to be an American and support our troops!

Coffee With A Purpose?

I've seen it all now. You can now buy coffee from Concordia Publishing House. The proceeds go to LCMS World Relief and Human Care. Check it out!

Welcome to Concordia Publishing House

I can't wait until they come out with a new Jello brand!

A Scientific View of the Floods

Here is the National Weather Service's view of the floods of August 18 and 19th.

When It Rains, It Pours!

As many of you are aware our region was flooded by record breaking amounts of rain on August 18 &19. While Messiah Lutheran sustained minor damage to the church office (my basement), others will be recovering for months, perhaps years. Check out this link: The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod - Minn. Pastor Example of Midwest Flooding.

I spoke with Pastor Kruzemark today. They are still recovering from the floods. It's going to take time, but God is with them! He stated that this has provided a ministry opportunity for him in the community.

Please keep Grace, Stockton and St. Mark's, Rushford in your prayers. Some financial support would be appreciated as well, I'm sure!
