NYG 2016 Day 3 – Where Do You Find Your Joy?

Greetings once again everyone in the name of Jesus! With our first “Mass Event” occurring at the Superdome last night the Gathering has finally been officially kicked off. And WOW did they pull out all the stops! But more on that in a little bit. Our first order of business was to visit the National WWII Museum and it did not disappoint. The kids were very engaged in the history surrounding one of the most pivotal times in our nation’s history. We started with a walking tour of the premises before viewing the acclaimed “Beyond All Boundaries” four dimensional movie experience. The film is incredibly moving and so well done that it is actually impossible to put into words. We

NYG 2016 Day 2 – Lutheran Invasion!

Lutherans, Lutherans are everywhere! Yesterday was the first official day of registration for the Gathering and our brothers and sisters in the LCMS were now arriving in full force. It was an awesome sight to see. We were so thankful for the opportunity to arrive a day early in order to start getting around the city with the kids and do some some sight seeing before the start of the convention. Our first order of the day was a tour of “Mardi Gras World”, a fantastic experience where the kids got an exclusive behind the scenes look at the massive production that goes in to all of those parades and their storied history.

Yes You Can Find Fault, But Can You Find Glory?

The Devil is the accuser of the brethren. He accuses us to God. He accuses us to ourselves. He uses others to accuse us. We can do this to others ourselves. Two things are constantly going on in a believer’s life. God is at work. He is doing something. He is the author of our faith. He is the most skillful worker. He is doing and he has been doing great works in our lives. He is putting His glory into us as He transforms us into His image and anything He does is beautiful and glorious. The other thing that is going on is we are still struggling with sins, faults, circumstances, providences, etc. etc. The devil is constantly accusing

Attachment Workshop

Saturday, April 239:00-12:00Trinity Lutheran Church For adoptive families, attachment is an every day, life long journey.

Lutherans and Anglicans Move Closer Together

Participants in the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA), The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod(LCMS) and Lutheran Church—Canada’s (LCC) ongoing ecumenical dialogue have released an interim report on their work so far. Titled “On Closer Acquaintance,” the document is the culmination of six years of regular discussions among the three church bodies and highlights the discovery of significant doctrinal agreement between the Anglican and Lutheran participants. The authors are clear that there is still much work to be done before altar and pulpit fellowship between the two sides would be possible. Nevertheless, they have found the discussions promising enough to publicly declare their prayer “that, in the time and manner of His choosing, our Lord would grant each side in our conversations

First Things First

The reason we come to Church on Sunday morning, as opposed to Sunday afternoon or Monday evening, is because it is the first day of the week. The first thing you do this week, before you do anything else, is come to Church. You begin your week with the Word of God, Prayer, and the Holy Communion. You give the first seventh, off the top, of your time to the Lord. He blesses that time. In that time, He forgives your sins, cleanses, and purifies you. He then sends you out into the world, into the week, as His in all your days and hours and life. This is also the reason we pray before we eat. We want to
