New Covenant

God promises Jeremiah that a “new covenant” will be made in the future: a covenant that will allow all the people to know God by heart. The church sees this promise fulfilled in Christ, who draws all people to himself when he is lifted up on the cross. Our baptismal covenant draws us to God’s heart through Christ and draws God’s light and truth into our hearts. We see God’s heart most clearly in the way Jesus shares human suffering, in an agony both the John and Hebrews readings describe.

Wholistic Healing Book Study

genetic roulette

March 20, 7:00 pm; Adult Ed. Room

At our next Wholistic Healing Book Study, Tuesday, March 20, we will view a meticulously documented and thoroughly comprehensive video about genetically modified organisms (GMO) made by the non-profit Institute for Responsible Technology (of Fairfield, IA) with input by more than 30 scientists.

"Genetic Roulette" is for anyone wanting to understand GMO technology and learn how to protect their families. We assume the FDA is protecting our health but the truth is that eating genetically modified (GM) food is a gamble that most of us don’t know we are taking. The biotech industry’s claim that genetically modified (GM) foods are safe is shattered in this groundbreaking video. There are dozens of health risks of ingesting commonly eaten GMO foods such as cancer, heart disease, auto-immune diseases, birth defects, autism, infertility, digestive disfunction, obesity, food allergies, and new diseases not seen before.

This does not even consider the damage being done to our environment by the chemicals used to grow GM crops which is a big part of the reason our insect population (now down by 50%) has decreased along with our birds and other wildlife. The benefits of buying organic start long before we eat our food.

The date of this meeting was changed because of a conflict. Please join us for this video and discussion at Lake Edge Lutheran Church, Madison.
