A Note From Pastor Rall: Reformation Truths
The Epistle reading for the celebration of Reformation, Romans 3:19-28, is a powerful summary of the very heart of the message of the reformers.  It contains some concepts that are basic to understanding the whole letter to the Romans and are essential to the faith we share as Lutheran Christians.
These concepts:  sin, law, righteousness, faith, grace, and justified were the keys to restoring the clear Gospel to the Church and are no less important for us today.  Many people today might think of "justify" as a way of explaining or excusing what we have done.  But St. Paul knew that there was no way for us to justify ourselves before a holy God.  We have all "sinned and fallen short of the glory of God".  Nothing we can say or do can appease the wrath of God.  The Law has a way of stopping every mouth of trying to make a defense.  We are all guilty and deserving of "temporal and eternal death".
But in Jesus a righteousness has been revealed that comes to us by faith in what He has done. .. Continue Reading

SUNDAY SCHOOL NEWS
Parent Sunday School Connection for week of October 29
Lesson 10 Bible Story - Jeremiah and God's New Covenant - Jeremiah 1:4-10; 29:1-14; 31:31-34; 33:14-16
The Bible account for Sunday School this week is "Jeremiah and God's New Covenant." God promised to restore His wayward people, pointing them to a new covenant and a righteous Branch of David. Jesus, the promised Branch, fulfilled this covenant of righteousness for Jeremiah, Israel, and all believers. Consider discussing, "What challenges did Jeremiah face in life? What promises did God make to faithful Jeremiah?"
Memory Verse:
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
