Over the last couple of weeks I have been reflecting on several different things. The one thing that has really been impressed on me this last week is the Shema (Sh’ma — listen, or hear & do) found in Deuteronomy 6:4. See more in the March 2014 newsletter
It hardly seems possible that we should already be going into the month of February this year. The month of January was a month of reflection for me. I have been looking back over the last few years here at Star of the North thinking about what we have been able to accomplish. I have been thinking about the future for us as a church and for me on a personal level. One of my biggest concerns is that we do not get so caught up in taking care of ourselves that we forget to care about our communities. A few weeks ago during my reading I came across an article on prayer that suggested our prayers consist of three questions:
1. Lord, what do you want me to do?
2. Lord, how do you want me to do it?
3. Lord, when do you want me to do it?

On the last Sunday of 2013 we talked about how Christmas is not the end of Advent, or the aniticipation of Christ’s coming. It is a beginning for Christians as we are being called to take the message of Christmas to the world. Our closing hymn was, “Oh, That the Lord Would Guide My Ways”, and in verse #1 we ask for the grace to know and do his will. Read more in the January 2014 newsletter 2
Over the last three months I have been reading a devotional book entitled, Costly Grace, based on Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s book by the same title. One of the devotionals was titled, “Our Love for One Another Must be Personal,” and was based on John 13:35.“This is how every-one will recognize that you are my disciples—when they see the love you have for each other.”
What does this have to do with the Christmas season? Read more in December 2013 newsletter
Star of the North Lutheran Church in Kenai has been serving the community for over 50 years. If you are looking for a place to worship we would encourage you to join us on Sunday morning for a traditional worship. If you are interested in Bible Study we have several different options.
