INFORMATION FOR YOU FROM OUR LIBRARY:  In Immanuel’s library are two copies of a book entitled UNCOMMON by Tony Dungy, a retired National Football League coach winning the Super Bowl in 2007. FEATURE BOOK: UNCOMMON teaches how to live a life of significance. Tony quotes Romans 12:2:  Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.  Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good, and pleasing and perfect. Next Sunday’s Lutheran Hour radio program is “Never Alone” based on Matthew 28:16-20 with Lutheran Hour Speaker: Rev. Dr. Gregory Seltz. You can be certain about the place to meet God, His plan of salvation, and His presence. Worldwide KFOU is the Official LCMS Radio. Listen at KFOU.org.  There are some great articles about the Deaconess ministry in the Life of the World magazine on the table in the coat area.

Life thoughts for June 4 – Pentecost Sunday – God’s own Spirit empowers our witness. As the Lord and Giver of life, He transforms our awkwardest efforts (Numbers 11:24-30) into making God’s mighty works understood (Acts 2:5-11). We may boldly proclaim and gladly perform the Christian Gospel, knowing it saves even skeptics (Acts 2:21). O Lord, lend Your Spirit to my lips and living. Amen.
Main Street Living can be seen Sundays, 10 AM, on KVRR Fargo and other Fox stations, and anytime at www.mainstreetlivingnorth.com. Rev. Christopher Waldvogel of Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church in Fargo, preaches June 11. And checkout the Sunday School episodes from 10:30 to 11 AM.
Thank you for the lovely and perfect card for my birthday. I thank Jesus so often for His gift of life for you and me. Also for guiding me to Immanuel to learn so much more about Him from Pastor Lee, Karen and the rest of the congregation. Know that I miss you all.    Geri Kanten
