What's inside

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.

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."
