LUTHER QUOTE FOR THE WEEK
The kingdom of Christ is not to be a government constitutes and organized in worldy fashion by human wisdom, power and might, but a government of the Holy Spirit, or a spiritual kingdom, in which Christ rules invisibly and not with external bodily power, through the Word alone, which the Holy Spirit will preach and thereby work in the hearts of men.
(Church Postils, Cantate)
WOMEN’S RETREAT AT PETIT JEAN
Will be held May 19th-21st. Registration deadline is May, 14th. The retreat will explore how God makes himself known to us through our five senses. Sessions will include God’s gift of music, God’s handiword in the heavens, essential oils used in the Bible, pleasing tastes and aroma, and much more. Participants can stay Friday and Saturday night in the bunkhouse cabins or drive up during the day. Women can learn more or register online at the camp website, lutheran camp.org, or call the camp office at 501-652-6304. No one will be turned away because of cost.
LIFE QUOTES “As the Church of God it’s time we rightly extolled the vocation of motherhood, and it’s time we finally saw the resplendent majesty concealed terein. There is no greater vocation on earth for it’s God’s chosen means to bring children into this world and, likewise through parents, to bring children into Christ’s kingdom of forgiveness through Holy Baptism.”
-Rev. Jonathan Conner, Zion Lutheran Church, Manning, Iowa – If you want to support Lutherans For Life, you may do so through their web site: www.lutheransforlife.org
