Golden and Noble Works

“A wife too should regard her duties in the same light, as she suckles the child, rocks and bathes it, and cares for it in other ways; and as she busies herself with other duties and renders help and obedience to her husband. These are truly golden and noble works."
Martin Luther

Encouraging Vocational Education 2013 Getaway

I'm sure many of you are looking forward to this year's EVE Getaway for LCMS Pastors' wives, scheduled for Sunday, April 21 and Monday, April 22 in Norfolk, NE.

This year's topic: The Gospel According to Diakonia

The Gospel that proclaims the good news Christ’s liberating death and
resurrection is always embodied in the world through us in love. Both
Jesus and Paul teach that salvation is by grace through faith, but faith is
always working through love. The Gospel comes to us in the concrete
means of grace in the liturgy of the church, as Christ is present for us with
his gifts of forgiveness, life and salvation. Christ continues to be present
in the liturgy of life as we embody his love and forgiveness in the world
through concrete acts of mercy and charity.

Presenting this year: REV. DR. Arthur A. Just

Arthur Just is Chairman and Professor of Exegetical Theology, and Co-Director of The Good Shepherd Institute at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne.
