Worship God Alone

The third covenant in this year’s Lenten readings is the central one of Israel’s history: the gift of the law to those God freed from slavery. The ten commandments are one of the chief parts of Luther’s catechism, a core piece of baptismal instruction. They begin with the statement that because God alone has freed us from the powers that oppressed us, we are to let nothing else claim first place in our lives. When Jesus throws the merchants out of the temple, he is defending the worship of God alone and rejecting the ways commerce and profit-making can become our gods.

Wholistic Healing Book Study

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.


See you at church!
