Zion's school students, faculty, & staff come together to hear God's Word of grace during their midweek chapel service. Pr. Craig Meissner of Immanuel Lutheran Church, Steger, is our guest pastor today.
In this service we observe Holy Cross Day. Within that, we also consider the "cost" along with the "gain" that Christians of all eras realize. The sermon title is The Foolishness of the Cross based on 1 Cor. 1 & John 12.
We once again worship the Lord who has released the prisoners "with anxious hearts." Listen to hear how an owl with its incessant hooting on my boyhood farm ties in with our sermon based on Isaiah 35:4-7.
In this devotion we'll consider the 5 "laments" to be found in the Book of Lamentations. In the 5th "lament," we'll see what happents to our joy due to our sin. But... as is often the case, God turns things around in Psalm 30. We consider that too!
