Motto: "I will not leave you comfortless" (John 14:18).
The words of the Creed are familiar to Christian people from, among other settings, worship services. When a person is baptized, those participating in the occasion mutually join in saying the Creed. The baptizing occurs in the name of the Triune God. When after Christian confirmation school, one is confirmed, he confesses his Christian faith, he promises to express that in his life.
In this letter that apostle Paul wrote to the believers in Thessalonia, he encourages them to remain watching in living faith. Earlier in the letter (1 Thess. 4:16–18) we find a very descriptive portion of God’s Word that prophecies of the time when Jesus will return to the earth for the second time.
This year we commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation, which is often said to have begun when Martin Luther famously nailed 95 theses to the church door in Wittenberg, Germany. Due in part to Minnesota’s sizable Lutheran population, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts was able to host a special exhibit—Martin Luther: Art and the Reformation. The Oct. 30–Jan. 15 exhibit showcased artwork, artifacts, and educational materials related to Luther’s childhood and faith, as well as to his work and its impact on history.
