Great things happen in the Lutheran schools of the South Wisconsin District and I want to be able to share these. If you have something you feel is worth sharing, email me at cody@swd.lcms.org
As many of us move (crawl...limp...) into Spring Breaks or Easter Breaks, take a moment to read and pray the words of Johann Balthasar Konig in the wonderful Lenten hymn
"Jesus, Grant that Balm and Healing" (LSB 421).
Every wound that pains or grieves me
By Your wounds, Lord, is made whole;
When I'm faint, Your cross revives me,
Granting new life to my soul.
Yes, Your comfort renders sweet
Every bitter cup I meet;
For Your all-atoning passion
Has procured my soul's salvation.
May God grant each of you peace, hope, and comfort as you continue the Lenten journey.
