KFUO 100th Anniversary.  KFUO is a radio station owned and operated by the LCMS.  It’s based in St. Louis, syndicated on other radio stations, and available via podcast and online at KFUO.org.  It offers music, daily worship, and talk shows (including appearances by our own Pastor Sandeno). KFUO is the longest continually owned-operated religious broadcast station in the world, and maintains its mission of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ both on AM (850) and Worldwide.  

Short term missionary opportunities.  Do you have building and renovation skills, accounting and finance experience, or a medical background?  There are many opportunities to serve on a mission team or as an individual.  For example, you can partner with a Taiwanese Lutheran congregation and put on an English Bible Camp to share the Gospel with school aged children in Taiwan July 10-20.  Estimated cost is $250 plus airfare.  Learn more, check out other opportunities, and sign up at servenow.lcms.org.

The best outreach is the personal conversation.  Every One His Witness is a relational, contextual Lutheran evangelism program that teaches how to witness to our nonchurched friends, co-workers, neighbors, and family members. Using the LASSIE approach to witnessing (listen, ask, seek, share, invite, and encourage), we learn how to share the Good News of Jesus Christ in a natural way with people who are part of our everyday lives.

A Life Thought in the Church Year for June 2 – Pentecost II : Abortion and euthanasia aim to avoid disabilities by eliminating the persons who have them. The Christian community, on the other hand, regards persons with disabilities as reasons for rejoicing. Even the most fragile human bodies testify to the goodness of the God who created and sustains them (2 Corinthians 4:7-11). Let us declare and demonstrate how the life of Jesus manifests in every neighbor!

A Stewardship Thought For June 2 – 2 Corinthians 4:7 – “But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.” The chief treasure we have is our faith, our connection to Jesus and all the blessings He bestows upon us: forgiveness of sins, the Holy Spirit, new desires to follow Him, spiritual growth into His image, etc. St. Paul says we have these treasures in jars of clay, meaning that of ourselves, we are still weak, stumbling and powerless. The treasure is not us, but what the Lord has graciously given us. We are vessels for His blessings. But a treasure hoarded is a treasure wasted. How is the Lord calling you to share these and all the treasures He has given you?

A Life Thought in the Church Year for June 9 – Pentecost III (Proper 5B): We believe Almighty God creates human beings in His own image, and so we also speak (2 Corinthians 4:13) against using death as a solution. We believe He redeems each one through His beloved Son, and so we also speak it despite political opposition or popular opinion. We believe He calls them all by His very Spirit, and so we also speak the sanctity of every human life!

A Stewardship Thought For June 9 – Proper 5 Mark 3:35 – “Whoever does the will of God, he is my brother and sister and mother.” Doing the will of God starts with trusting in His Son, Jesus Christ. Once we have faith in Him and have been reborn as new creatures through Holy Baptism, we strive to grow in this faith and in a life that agrees with our faith. Growing in generosity, in kindness and in love across our callings in the home, in church and in society is growing into the family of God, for all who do His will are His brothers and sisters and mothers.
