Blessed Christmas to all our Readers and Thanks to our Volunteers

John 1:9  The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. 10  He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. 11  He came to his own,  and his own people  did not receive him. 12  But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, 13  who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. 14  And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.  

Blessed Christmas to all the brothers and sisters of John the Steadfast and all our readers. Because we are born again not of man’s will but of God, we are able to remain steadfast in the pure Gospel.

With the beginning of this Christmastide we are passing through our first year and a half of being the go to place for Lutheran news and commentary. We thank our volunteers for all their hard work.

Thank you all,

Pastor Rossow
