First, some good news:  Pastor Swen messaged me that he has been discharged from the hospital.  He didn’t go into details, but yesterday his brother, David, messaged me the hospital test reports.  Among other things, it mentioned a 5 mm kidney stone.  We give God thanks for Swen being released and pray that his health has been completely restored.

This week’s portion of Hebrews includes a few verses that led to selecting this book to study.  A plain reading of these verses would seem to say that it’s impossible for someone who believes and then rejects the faith ever to repent and come back to faith (read Hebrews 6:4-6).  So, “what does this mean?”  Join us Saturday evening at 5:30 in Bethany Lutheran Church as we dig into this difficult reading.

Our readings this week will be:

Genesis 22:9-19

Psalm 1

Hebrews 5:11-6:20

Matthew 7:21-27

May 15, etc. – 5:30 pm – worship with Shepherd – Zoom ID 515 382-2077, passcode 3548999

May 16, etc. – 9:25 am – worship with Bethany – recording available on Bethany’s GodTube channel an hour (or so) after the service ends
