Behold, our King!

No tramp of soldiers marching feet
With banners and with drums,
No sound of music’s martial beat:
“The King of glory comes!”
To greet what pomp of kingly pride
No bells in triumph ring,
No city gates swing open wide:
Behold, behold your King!”

Lutheran Service Book 444:1

March comes and our Lenten journey has reached midpoint. The Luther Academy will pause its semester at Holy Week and Easter for us to be focused on the King of our lives and souls and what He has done.

In the meantime, our work goes forward. In our letter this month I highlight the preaching our students have begun to do. Although their formation for ministry is also just at its midpoint, I hope you will find this news to be encouraging and rewarding: a corner is being turned as practice of theology in pastoral service is more and more the focus of their day.

Thank you for reading and for your prayers and support.
