“The Lord will strike Egypt, striking but healing; so they will return to the Lord, and He will respond to them and will heal them. In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrians will come into Egypt and the Egyptians into Assyria, and the Egyptians will worship with the Assyrians.” (Isaiah 18:22, 23)
In the mystery of what the Lord is telling us, there are things that have not yet come to pass. Many will think that everything the Lord has told us has already happened, but it is not so. Yes, there are highways between Iraq and Egypt and there has been friendship and they do worship together, but has it yet come to pass? Turn to the Lord and seek understanding from Him.
Lord, I sometimes think myself wise. I am not. I sometimes listen to those in this world who think themselves wise, they are not. You alone hold all wisdom and give it to whom You will. Help me begin with the understanding You have given and then move from their to understand what You would reveal, but above all that I would hold fast to the revelation of salvation You have given in Christ.
Lord, You are the Master of history. Help me see that in You alone is there hope and a future. It will come to pass as You have spoken it and be as clear as those prophecies already fulfilled. Help me to trust You in every way, knowing that You are the author of life and will lead me through every time, whether it be of blessing, or trouble. Thank You Lord for leading me this day. Amen.

Our new building project
We confess the apostolic faith in Jesus Christ according to the Holy Scriptures. We affirm the authority of the Scriptures as the authoritative source and norm, “according to which all doctrines should and must be judged” (Formula of Concord). We accept the ecumenical creeds and the Lutheran Confessions as true witnesses to the Word of God.
We believe that the mission of the Church is to preach the Gospel and to make disciples for Christ. We believe that making disciples — in our congregations, in our communities and nations, and around the world — must be a priority of the Church in the present age.
We affirm the ecumenical creeds and the faithful witness of the Church across time and space. We endorse the form and practices of the universal Church that are consistent with Scripture, particularly the office of the ministry and the tradition of worship under Word and Sacrament. We seek dialogue and fellowship with other Lutheran churches and with faithful Christians of other confessions.
We strive to be a church body that is organized to facilitate the ministries of local congregations in a posture of servanthood and a spirit of partnership, through the provision of resources, connections and information.
