O anúncio da vinda do Senhor

O anúncio da vinda do Senhor, precedido pelo seu anjo.

Don't let me worry about death

Jesus, don't let me worry about death. Remind me every day that you have forgiven all my sins. Remind me also that if you have conquered death for me, then I don't need to worry about anything at all! Thank you, Jesus! Amen

Jesus, you are my King

Jesus, you are my King. In love for me, you did what no king should have to do–you suffered and died for a rebellious servant like me. Thank you for your forgiveness and care. Fill me with your love and faithfulness so that I always serve and honor you.

Luther's Evening Prayer

I thank You, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that You have graciously kept me this day; and I pray You to forgive me all my sins where I have done wrong, and graciously keep me this night. For into Your hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things. Let Your holy angel be with me, that the wicked foe may have no power over me. Amen.

A mighty fortress is our God

A mighty fortress is our God, A trusty shield and weapon;
He helps us free from every need That has us now o'ertaken.
The old evil foe Now means deadly woe;
Deep guile and great might Are his dread arms in fight;
On earth is not his equal.

With might of ours can naught be done; Soon were our loss effected.
But for us fights the valiant one Whom God himself elected.
You ask, "Who is this?" Jesus Christ it is,
The almighty Lord. And there's no other God;
He holds the field forever.

(Christian Worship: A Lutheran Hymnal - Hymnal - 200, stanzas 1 and 2)

Interactive Faith (WELS)

January is two months away and what better way to start a new year than with a new Interactive Faith online Bible study series.

Beginning Wed., Jan. 7, 2015, Rev. David Scharf, Immanuel, Greenville, Wis., will lead a six-week study called "Breaking the Cycle with Grace (a study of the book of Judges)."

Scharf says of the topic, "It has been said that nearly every doctrine of the Bible can be found in the biblical narratives contained in the book of Judges. That fact alone merits a deeper look! And yet, how often have we read, let alone studied this action-packed book of God's grace? In our lives, we go through cycles of ups and downs - we think God is pleased one moment and that he is not the next. Come and break the cycle of uncertainty with grace as we study a book full of God's love and patience!"

The study will be streamed live online twice every Wednesday night between Jan. 7 and Feb. 11 at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. (central).

Thousands of WELS members have participated in the Interactive Faith Bible studies, which are held twice a year and led by a WELS pastor or professor. Many congregations gather as a group for the study; other WELS members connect as couples or individuals. The studies are designed to have 10 to 15 minutes of lecture by the instructor, followed by 5 to 10 minutes for congregations to discuss a question or two or do further study. Participants can interact with the instructor via the chat box.

Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness. Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble.

Eclesiastes 3: 1-8

1 Tudo tem o seu tempo determinado, e há tempo para todo o propósito debaixo do céu.
2 Há tempo de nascer, e tempo de morrer; tempo de plantar, e tempo de arrancar o que se plantou;
3 Tempo de matar, e tempo de curar; tempo de derrubar, e tempo de edificar;
4 Tempo de chorar, e tempo de rir; tempo de prantear, e tempo de dançar;
5 Tempo de espalhar pedras, e tempo de ajuntar pedras; tempo de abraçar, e tempo de afastar-se de abraçar;
6 Tempo de buscar, e tempo de perder; tempo de guardar, e tempo de lançar fora;
7 Tempo de rasgar, e tempo de coser; tempo de estar calado, e tempo de falar;
8 Tempo de amar, e tempo de odiar; tempo de guerra, e tempo de paz.

How God Blessed the Reformation through Katie Luther

"God blessed the Reformation through Katie Luther's support of Martin's preaching and teaching the Gospel, and her setting a model for the Christian family, her household, and Christian businesswomen."

Evangelical Lutheran Synod (ELS)


Encontrar Deus em Cristo

"Não devemos tentar penetrar nos sublimes mistérios da majestade de Deus, mas devemos simplesmente contentar-nos com o Deus na cruz. Quem tenta encontrar Deus fora de Cristo encontrará apenas o diabo."
Martinho Lutero

"We should not try to penetrate the lofty mysteries of God's majesty, but we should simply be content with the God on the cross. Anyone who tries to find God outside of Christ will find only the devil."
Martin Luther
