Conquering Death to Give us Life

Posted by Dr. Steve Buuck on Apr 1, 2018 5:00:00 AM

Woody Allen once said, “I'm not afraid of death, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.”  That’s cute and funny, but the reality is… he was afraid of death and it is going to happen – to all of us.  I don’t know about you, but that scares me a bit.  For the huge majority of the people in the world, even us Christians, death can seem scary.  But as Jesus walked the face of the earth, death didn’t scare Him.

Dangers, Data, and Divinity

As the Director of Social Norms here at Faith Lutheran Middle School & High School, I am passionate about helping our students avoid risky behaviors like drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and sex.  This January we have launched our Faith Facts campaign with renewed vigor to involve the entire Faith Family.  Faith Facts is a major undertaking that is part of a comprehensive ‘Avoid Risky Behaviors’ program.  To summarize the comprehensive approach, I will summarize it in three words ‘Danger, Data, and Divinity”.

We are so pleased to introduce the newest member of the Faith Family - Esther!  Esther is a two month old Goldendoodle.  She will begin working full time at Faith during the 2018-2019 school year but will be a regular visitor to campus during this training year.  I’d like to take a moment to share more information about Esther, how she was “hired”, and what her role at Faith Lutheran Middle School & High School will look like.

We're on a Mission

Posted by Dr. Steve Buuck on Sep 22, 2017 5:00:00 AM

A few years ago, my wife and I traveled to Israel.  One day while at the Church of the Multiplication of Loaves and Fishes on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee, a bus filled with Israeli soldiers from the Israeli Defense Forces pulled into the parking lot.  I asked our tour guide what they were doing.  He explained that soldiers are toured around the entire country so they learn the history, culture, beliefs, geography, and people of Israel.  He quipped, “Too many soldiers go into battle, and they don’t know what they’re fighting for.  We make sure that doesn’t happen in Israel.”
