So do not fear, for I am with  you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand . Isaiah 41:10
 
As we look at our Sunday bulletin and see our ever lengthening list of people who are ill or in need and also as we look at the concerns for our community and country, we see an ever increasing need for prayer. Therefore, we ask each of you to increase your prayers in this time of need. 
 
Have you ever noticed the beautiful flower arrangements on the altar during our services? These are just another example of God’s beauty and love. Each month, these are provided by congregation members in honor or in memory of loved ones. If this is something you would be interested in, look for the flower signup sheet in the Narthex or contact any altar committee member for details. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and helping to make our services even more beautiful. 
 
Thank you,   The Altar Committee

Easter is late this year.  At least later than what we are used to.  Easter Sunday is April 21.  Ash Wednesday will not occur until March 6.  Pastors take notice of such matters.  So now you are probably getting ready to ask the good Lutheran question, “What does this mean?”  Well, what this means is that we will still be in the season of Epiphany for the whole month of February.  Epiphany, you know — the Wise men, the revelation of Christ to all nations, Jesus’ baptism in the Jordan River, and Christ as the Light of the world.   
 
All this leads me to another “Light” reading.    
To this day I have had the help that comes from God, and so I stand here testifying both small and great, saying nothing but what the prophets and Moses said would come to pass: that the Christ must suffer and that, by being the first to rise from the dead, he would proclaim light both to our people and to the Gentiles. (Acts 26:22-23) 
 
There were three rather sad friends who attended the funeral of an old buddy who had died quite suddenly.  As they were walking away from the graveside one of the guys was in deep thought.  Then he asked, “Boys, when your time comes, what would you want the pastor to say about you? 
 
One of the men replied, “Well, I don’t know.  I guess I would like him to tell the multitude that will be gathered that day… I would want him to say something like, ‘Before us today lies a great humanitarian, an exceptional man.’” 
 
The man who asked the question responded, “Not bad, but I think I’d prefer the pastor to say something like, ‘We are mourning a man who was a great husband and father, a man who always managed to set an example for us to follow.  He’s going to be missed.’” 
 
The third fellow broke the mood when he said, “I would want the pastor to say, ‘Look!  He’s moving!  He’s alive!’” 
 
Dying comes to all of us.  It happened to our Savior.  Graveside mourners came by that day too.  But our Savior didn’t stay in the grave too long.  The Light that come into the world destroyed death.  “He is risen!” 
 
That’s another way of saying, “Look!”  He’s alive!  He’s moving.” 
 
May your February be filled with hope and Light!
