WHAT AN IMPORTANT THING it is that we may sometimes take for granted! I am referring to the study, and prayer, and effort, and time that our pastors put in week after week (and several times a week during certain times of the church year) to craft a sermon message for us! As I prepare these monthly newsletter articles, I see the various sermon titles listed by the pastors. This causes me to anticipate what the message will be; but should also cause us all to remember to continually lift our pastors up in prayer, with thanksgiving!
Please continue to share information about our LCMS “Main Street Living” media ministry with others. In addition to being broadcast each Sunday morning, you can view archived programs anytime at mainstreetliving.com/North
