Welcome back to school! School is in full swing and we are in the thick of things in October. Esther and I just wanted to check in and give everyone an update.
The first week of February marked a new tradition for Faith Lutheran Middle School and High School. The school celebrated its first annual African American Celebration. The theme was, “We’ve Come This Far by Faith”.
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.
Good Friday? What is so good about Good Friday? Is this an appropriate title for such a day? In my younger days, I always viewed this as the most depressing day of the year. Churches are dark, pastors often wear black, fewer candles are lit, people are somber, the music is depressing. We often leave the sanctuary in silence. What’s so good about Good Friday?
Dearest Faith Families,
It’s the most wonderful time of the year (in my best Andy Williams’ voice!). The sights, the sounds, the smells, the tastes…I hope everyone loves the Christmas season! Around Faith Lutheran, our students, faculty, and staff will enjoy some well deserved time off to spend time with family and friends. And maybe open some presents.
