Law and Gospel in Worship
by Rev. George F. Borghardt
We often think worship is about what we offer to God and
indeed we do have something to offer Him: our sins. In
return, we receive the glorious gift of Jesus in Word, water,
Body and Blood, for which, declares Rev. Borghardt, we get
to respond to God with praise for the sake of our neighbor!
Just Shut Up and Die!
by Rev. Donavon L. Riley
Death is a brutal reality. It is inescapable because we are
slaves to the power of sin. But, as Rev. Riley reassures us, we
are baptized children of God, and so we are raised daily in
the waters of our Baptism. We can tell our Old Adam where
to go because death is not the end.

You might have even memorized some of the dialogue
from your favorite MARVEL movie as well. Yes, there's a

Catechism: The Third Commandment
by Rev. William M. Cwirla
So how is the Sabbath made holy? It's far more than
observing a day of rest from work, it's about a person: Jesus
