Keep the Faith and Wisdom!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3: 5-6.

We grew up in a society and culture, here in America, where we were told over and over to be independent in our thoughts and actions. So, when we read in the Bible (see above) NOT to rely on our own insight, we pause. Yes, we know a lot. But, there is so much we do not understand. We have some knowledge. We often do not have wisdom. God in Christ shows us the way through life as we “listen” to Him and His voice in the Bible, in our worship services, in the Sacraments, and in our prayers.

And can we take advantage of adult Sunday School classes and classes for our youth? Lynn’s Lutherans are currently studying Love Walked Among Us. The Kitchen Class is studying current topics and relating them to our faith and the Bible. We can and do keep the faith and receive wisdom, but only if we do the faith practices. One of them is praying and studying together. The S.S. classes serve as a point of learning, praying, and fellowship. Please come and join in. Following worship on Sundays, we have S.S. at 10:15 a.m. Keep the faith and wisdom.

Peace, † Pastor Lynn Williamson
