July 20 “We all live with dying. We also live in a culture that does not know how to live with dying and turns to death as a solution to the problems of life. Paul reminds us that as we live with dying, Christ comforts us with the certainty that it would be ‘far better’ to depart and be with Him. But he also reminds us that the timing belongs to God. If He gives continued life it is ‘more necessary’ that we go on living. But whether we live or die, Christ is at work and He will be honored!” Rev. Dr. James I. Lamb, executive director of Lutherans For Life – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life ·

If you are interested in attending the 2014 Lutherans for Life National Conference in Grand Rapids, MI on October 24-25th, there is information on the Narthex table. 

Life Thoughts for July 20 – Sixth Sunday after Pentecost – Being certain of what you hope for makes hoping all the more hopeful! Christian hope in suffering goes beyond, “I hope this ends.” Christian hope anchors itself in the certainty that an unending glory awaits that will make even the greatest suffering seem insignificant (Romans 8:18). Prayer: Lord Jesus, be with us in our suffering and give us the certain hope of the glory to come. Amen.

Please pray for those who have been effected by these storms that the Word of God can come to these people through caring and thoughtful people like you.

Stewardship: Luke 5:5 “And Simon answered, "Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets."” All our toil, all our work, all our efforts mean nothing without the Lord’s guidance. But if we walk in the Word of Jesus…well, look what happened to Simon Peter
