HAVE YOU been watching the “This Is The Life” programs along with the MSL Divine Services each Sunday? As our LCMS President Matthew Harrison states during his introduction of these programs, though they were recorded in the 1960s and 70s, the subject matter is still very relevant! I look forward to watching each week’s episode – and often find my emotions welling up as the storyline develops. These critically acclaimed dramas still do a fantastic job of “bringing Christ to the nations”!
Although many congregations have either started meeting face to face again – or are discussing doing so soon – there are likely those within our viewing area who will still be staying close to home. Therefore, this remains an excellent time to make a list of friends and neighbors to check with whom may not yet know about the TV and internet ministry of MAIN STREET LIVING! In addition to being broadcast each Sunday morning, you can view all archived programs at any time for a year at www.mainstreetliving.com/north. God’s blessing in Christ!
