During the month of October, we, as Lutherans, immediately reflect on Martin Luther and the truths of the Reformation—grace alone, faith alone, Scripture alone. But God used a second Martin to preserve this pure doctrine that we still treasure today. Read "The second Martin" to learn more.
Lutheran parents work hard to instill these Reformation truths into their children. Rob Guenther takes a humorous look at what it means to be a Lutheran parent before reminding us about the importance of this vocation in "You might be a Lutheran parent if . . ." Pam Holz provides ideas of how parents can bring faith into focus for their children in her article, "Jesus every day." Snowden Sims then tells us how a bedtime routine, complete with praying and hymn singing, brought daily comfort to both him and his daughter in "A daily walk with our Shepherd."
