FROM MARTIN LUTHER'S SMALL CATECHISM

The Third Commandment:
Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy.


What does this mean?
We should fear and love God so that we do not despise the preaching of His Word, but hold it sacred and gladly hear and learn it.

SONLIGHT

Have you ever noticed how changes come about?


MONDAYS … for PRAYER.

     Every Monday, between 1982 and 1989, people came together in the Nicolai Church of Leipzig, Germany. 

     It resulted in a peaceful demonstration and the ‘Fall of the Berlin Wall’.


FRIDAYS ... for FUTURE.

     Every Friday people are on the go for ‘Climate Change’ … spearheaded by Greta Thunberg from Sweden. 

     The effects are already felt throughout many countries.


SUNDAYS … for SONLIGHT.

     Every Sunday we ought to meet to receive SONLIGHT.


We have to admit that we are like the people of ‘olden times’, namely walking in darkness.  At that time, there was confusion, rebellion, frustration, political unrest, family division, and certainly discontentment throughout the countries. 


That situation, 2,000 years ago, has not changed until today. 


During that time of darkness, SOMEONE had a bright idea.  God sent His only Son, Jesus Christ.  He was the light that shines in the darkness!


Any change in our given situation will certainly start when we get connected to that LIGHT.


Therefore, may I invite you to join in a fresh new way for Advent and Christmas season celebration?
