So what are your favorite Bible passages? Do you have any verses memorized? I think it would be interesting to invite some of our Shepherd’s Voice readers to share the Bible passages that are important to them in their Christian faith and why. Please consider this just such an invitation!
Anniversary Celebrations, new events to come, processes that need the whole congregations assistance. I you ready for the coming season? Find out what you need to do to be prepared.
This Sunday August 14 we gather for the Shepherd of the Valley 50th Anniversary Celebration Picnic on the church grounds from 4:00-6:00 pm. The 50th anniversary team has worked very hard to organize this event so that it is a time of food, fun, and fellowship for everyone. Please invite your friends and family to join you on the lawn at the church, bring a side or dessert dish to share, and a say a little prayer for good weather. There will be a bouncy house for children and the Reams family singers from Zion Lutheran in Corvallis will share their Blue Grass and Gospel musical talents including some sing-a-longs.
Our Gospel reading this Sunday reminds us that every day God gives us life and joy that is a blessing beyond measure. So let us gather and give thanks to God for all our blessings, especially for the blessing of the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ who sustains and equips His church by the Holy Spirit in this and every age.
When people talk about God’s supposed role in disasters, whether natural or human in origin, I think we sometimes ask the wrong questions. We want to know if God is being “fair?” The answer of course is, thankfully, no. God is not fair. If God were fair we would all end up like Sodom and Gomorrah.
