From Chapel to the Class Room
We are always thankful for the many ways we deliver the message of forgiveness. Lutheran schools deliver God's Word to children the way God intends it to be delivered, by Law and Gospel. Learning about the Bible isn't only stories from a book. The Bible's stories show us that sinners need a Savior and that Savior is Christ.
What makes Lutheran Schools different is that they flow from the altar of the Lord. As believers are gathered in their churches, their focus is Christ's forgiveness and the altars are imagery that reminds us that Christ is the sacrifice for the sins of the world.
Our weekly chapels in the school remind us that God speaks consistently to us. The children learn the language of the Christian church in the chapels. It is the language of the church that shapes every believer and at OSL the language moves into the classrooms. There our teachers teach, but most importantly, they teach what the children hear when they are in chapel.
Here is this week's chapel at OSL. During this year, I and the sem students will lead all of the chapels. It's a way to give our teachers a break as so many other routines have been placed upon them until we move out of Covid regulations.
