Lutheran Hour… September 1 “Begin Again” Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler
The book of Genesis tells us that God made all things. But it won’t answer every question about when, how, and why God did it. That’s because Genesis is mostly about getting to know God. Dr. Michael Zeigler begins a new series of messages based on the first book of the Bible.
(Genesis 1:1 – 2:30)Lutheran Hour is broadcast on Sundays on radio stations: WCCO 830 AM at 6:05 am/KDOM 103.1 FM/1580 AM at 10:00 am/KJWR 90.9 FM at 6:00 pm.

Lutherans for Life… September 1 “A God who marks His covenanted people is telling them something important about the power of sex and its control and its proper place within the divine-human economy: It comes to us as a gift, to be used for its purposes and no other, and its abuse will sully the soul of man. Its proper use in marriage is a great mystery, a great gift which was given for the protection of all. It doesn’t always work out that way, sadly, but its imperfect practice is no excuse for throwing it all away for what we see today.” James M. Kushiner, The Fellowship of St. James.
