Life is more than a heartbeat, but...


In this episode, we consider how God reveals himself in stages - enough for us to handle - and how we can use our spiritual gifts. We also discuss government action in Iowa and New York with respect to life.

Please see the latest from the LCMS President regarding life.

Regarding gifts, the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 12:

 "4Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; 5and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; 6and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. 7To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. 8To one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, 9to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, 10to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills."

Happy New Year - It's Epiphany!

Three Wise Men

So, what does it mean to have an "epiphany"? What is it in the context of the church year?

What about all these elected officials who are sworn in every January? Is there an "Intersection of Church and State"?

(LHM Bible Study: The Intersection of Church & State)

Particularly with such big issues facing us as immigration and abortion?

(LCMS: March for Life)

What about belonging to a church community? Is the new year a good time for resolutions? How about "going to church more"? Is that on the agenda?

Listen to Pastor Jonathan Meraz and his thoughts on these topics in Episode 6 of the TLC Show!
