HOLY TRINITY; Proverbs 8:1–4, 22–31; Acts 2:14a, 22–36; John 8:48–59; The Triune God Reveals Himself in Christ Jesus: The divine Word of the Father is also the holy Wisdom who “was beside Him, like a master workman,” who “was daily His delight, rejoicing before Him always” (Prov. 8:30). This Word became flesh and suffered death, in order to bestow life by the preaching of His Gospel “to the children of man” (Prov. 8:4). He honors the Father, and the Father glorifies Him by raising Him from the dead, so that all who keep His Word “will never see death” (John 8:51). Long ago, “father Abraham rejoiced” in the day of Christ, for “he saw it and was glad” (John 8:56). Though Christ was “crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men,” “God raised Him up, loosing the pangs of death” (Acts 2:23, 24). As He “received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit” (Acts 2:32), so it is by and through the Son that God the Father pours out the Holy Spirit upon His Church.

She suggests making a large poster with “The Summer of 2010” written across the top. Invite your kids to join you in making a list of fun activities you want to do over the next two months. Also include some summer rules, like how much television time will be allowed, what chores will be required and how late is too late to sleep in. A little planning will help you enjoy these months off and avoid that regretful September statement, “Where did the summer go?” Lutheran Family Service of Iowa 800-622-7285
