We have two seminarian students currently that we are helping with tuition to Concordia Lutheran Seminary. The students are Vicar Dennis Mercer and Morgan Phillips.
Thank God, God’s in charge! There is a lot of press coverage and social media buzz about the Covid numbers in South Dakota. There are a lot of people wanting to advise us what to do. There is a place for the wisdom of our peer’s. There is a place to let God be God. Our worship practice at Divine Shepherd will remain the same. We will gather in person at 8:00 and 10:30 to hear and receive God’s good and precious gifts. The Psalmist writes in Psalm 33 “The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of His heart to all generations”. 33:11 God’s desire is to give us peace. His desire is to comfort us in our fear and anxiety. His desire is that we rest in His Word and promises. He does that through physical means. His Word is preached into our ears. His forgiveness given to you by the proclamation of His called ministers of the word. The very body and blood of Jesus placed in your mouth. These gifts and the resulting peace are given in the Divine Service. We will be here Sundays and Wednesdays to deliver to you God’s gifts.
The HT Reflection for this day is quite appropriate. The link is here: Higher Things Reflection for Thursday
God bless and keep you!
19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
