Happy 4th of July and Another Holy Land Trip

Hello Gloria Dei,

First of all, I want wish all of you a joy-filled 4th of July. And secondly, I’d like to wish this fine country of ours a very Happy 246th Birthday. We have much for which to be thankful, and the tenets upon which our founders built this country certainly are a part of our gratitude lists. Happy 4th of July.

As you have heard, Pastor Sarah Goldammer is leading a trip to the Holy Land this spring. This trip is getting close to capacity, and so I want to lift up another local group heading to the Holy Land for your consideration.

Many of you know our former Bishop, David Zellmer. Dave is a member of Gloria Dei, but is currently serving as the interim Sr. Pastor at First Lutheran in Sioux Falls.

Dave will be leading a trip to Israel and Jordan in April of 2023. He has asked that we let you know about it. Having led a trip back in 2019, I know of the life-changing impact such a trip has, walking where Jesus walked and experiencing places like the Sea of Galilee, Bethlehem, and Jerusalem, among many others.

If you are interested in this trip, find additional information here, or call First Lutheran directly.

For worship this weekend we continue in Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. Please read Matthew 6:24-34 to prepare your hearts and minds for worship. And if you’re “at the lake” or somewhere else this 4th of July weekend, remember that worship is livestreamed at 9:00 a.m.

Together in Christ,

Pastor Tim
