So the substance of this Gospel is that no mortal is so high, nor will ever ascend so high, who will not have occasion to fear that he may become the very lowest. On the other hand, no mortal lies so low or can fall so low, to whom the hope is not extended, that he may become the highest. Here all human merit is abolished and God’s goodness alone is praised.

(Church Postils, Septuagesima)

Is looking for an experienced school cafeteria cook to run the kitchen during summer camp. This is for the months of June and July. It works best if the cook stays on site, but they would consider someone who commutes. The camp can provide housing apart from the youth cabins. Most sessions run Sunday afternoon through Friday afternoon, or from Sunday supper through Friday lunch. The cook will have two college-age assistants. This is a good opportunity for someone who is not working in the summer and looking for a way to serve God by serving His children. If you know of anyone who fits the bill please cotact David Cox-Lutheran Camp director @


LIFE QUOTES  “What dwells and develops in pregnant wombs is no clump of cells, product of conception, parasite, piece of mother;s body, or potential anything. This little one is a full-fledged human being, made in the image of God and saved by the incarnationof Jesus Christ, to whom the Holy Spirit shows grace and in whom He creates faith. She is our neighbor and, God willing, His beloved child-a dear sister to us.”

Rev. Micheal W. Salemink, Executive Director of Lutherans For Life

As Valentines’ Day passes this year, we felt the following Resolutions might be appropriate in reaffirming your love for your special Valentine.



Top 10 New Year’s Resolutions for Couples


In an article appearing in Associated Content, Sally Albright suggests that the new year is a good time for couples to be reminded of some simple but powerful ways to strengthen their relationships. To that end, she presents her Top Ten New Year's Resolutions for Couples:



#10: Exercise TogetherExercising together as a couple can make getting more exercise fun, and you and your spouse can truly have a "healthy" relationship.


#9: Cook TogetherCooking dinner together is a great way to spend time together.


#8: Play Games TogetherTake the time to have some fun with your spouse by playing games together — especially in the colder winter months. 


#7: The Little ThingsSometimes, it's the littlest of things that really matter. Something as simple as setting the coffee machine to brew in the morning or opening the car door for your spouse can really show how much you care.


#6: Get RomanticThe types of romantic gestures you do really depends on what your spouse considers to be romantic, whether it be bouquets of flowers or cuddling together and watching a football game on TV. 


#5: ListeningTruly listen. Keep in mind that your spouse isn't always in search for answers and may not want to receive advice. They just want your ears all to themselves. 


#4: Fewer ArgumentsMake a New Year's resolution to argue less. Pick your battles wisely. Most importantly, learn to compromise. 


#3: ComplimentsTaking the time to compliment your spouse shows them that you do still love them, you appreciate them, and you still find them attractive. Surprise your loved one with compliments during appropriate times, such as when they dress up for a dinner out, do a job well done, or the way they handled your child's misbehavior. 


#2: DatesA little alone time with your spouse can be all that you need to feel reconnected with them. Having a special date night at the end of the week can give you and your loved one something to look forward to. 


#1: Saying I Love YouSay it often, say it with meaning. A simple I Love You can melt someone's heart.
