As we observe another Christmas season and prepare to welcome a new year, we note that the precursor to the Voice of Zion, a single-issue paper titled, Christmas in Zion, appeared for Christmas reading in 1973. Publication of that paper was evidence of God’s care and blessings following the schism that occurred in most North American Conservative Laestadian congregations earlier that year. Publishing activity had to be started from scratch in the newly formed Association of American Laestadian Congregations (AALC), whose name was later changed to Laestadian Lutheran Church (LLC). Following is the editorial article from that seminal issue of what already early in the following year became this paper, the Voice of Zion. The purpose of the paper remains the same as the then editors describe in the reprinted piece.
Traditions within the home have always been important and have played a role in the lives of believers. In the time in which we live, it is even more important to strive to create and preserve valuable traditions. Our lives are busy with many distractions that can take our focus away from faith. The world around us is ever changing. Traditions serve to bring our families and loved ones together, strengthening the family bond. They provide security for the children, something they can count on. They learn to expect these things. The core of teaching living faith begins in the home. Establishing traditions can help reinforce these teachings.
Our Mother, Helli Pirkola, attained the rest of the righteous as an 85-year-old on August 26, 2007 in Espoo, Finland. She was blessed into the Pyhäjoki church yard next to her spouse who died almost forty years earlier.
