Welcome to a place for new friends
Prince of Peace Lutheran Church!
Newsletter October, 2016
From the Pastor:
We are passing out to our neighbors invitations to our worship. They ask our neighbors if they are worried about who is going to be our next president of the United States of America. The invitation asks, “Are you worried about who is going to be in charge?” Then, answering our own question, the invitation continues,”They might worry you, but God is in charge.”
The future leadership of our nation concerns me and all of us. Thank God, God is in charge and God hears and answers our prayers. Irving Berlin, who was born a persecuted Jew in Czarist Russia, gave us one of the best prayers we can pray:
“God bless America, land that I love,
Stand beside her, and guide her,
Through the night with the light from above!”
Celebrate who is in charge every Sunday!
