Esther – What makes a hero?  Ask the question and you may find a surprising nonchalance; “I’m sure other people would have done exactly the same thing.”  They often say “I was just in the right place at the right time.”  People become heroes because they take quick action at that “right time” while others stand watching in horror.  The true hero recognizes the crisis and moves to meet it.  This kind of courage made Esther great–worthy of a book in the Bible.  Please join us on Sunday morning at 9:15 a.m. in Christ Hall.  We will be reading and discussing:  Queen Esther, world events, and heroes.

Daily Devotional Readings – The new quarterly devotional book called Christ in our Home is available at all entrances to the church.   Due to the need for people to stay home, Augsburg Fortress is offering Christ in Our Home as a free email subscription.  Click on the following link:  https://go.augsburgfortress.org/christ-in-our-home-email-subscription to sign up.   This devotional has a bible reading, thoughts and prayer for each day.  Are you more of an electronic reader?  Try God Pause from Luther Seminary in St. Paul’s Minnesota.  Sign up and you will receive a daily email with a scripture reading, reflection and prayer.  To sign up, click this link or type it into your computer search bar http://www.luthersem.edu/godpause/default.aspx

Online Devotions Group – Patty Snyder, Kathleen Lemke and Kahryn Wicker have been doing online devotion together since Lent and would love to have you join them.  Currently they are using the Christ in Our Home booklet that we get at church, but at the start of Advent they are reading and using the devotional:  Blue Christmas:  Devotions of Light in a Season of Darkness by Todd Outcalt.  Copies can be purchased on Amazon Smile (with purchases supporting the church) or you can talk to Patty Snyder about where to get it locally.  If you want to join us just email kathrynwicker@gmail.com and she will add you to the google document!  It is that easy!  And if you miss a day we are good with that because we are all busy.
