Reformation Sunday – Hymn Sing

Friday, November 16th, 2018

On Sunday October 28th we held our second annual Reformation Sunday Hymn Sing. It was a good time last year  we thought we’d try it again. This is a fun way for us to celebrate our Lutheran heritage and sing some of the wonderful historical hymnody we enjoy in our Lutheran church. A thanks to everyone who was willing to show up and sing around our living room!

Today we also presented a My First Catechism to Gerhardt per our tradition at his age. He’s so proud of himself for how much of it he’s read so far.

St. Michael and All Angels

We mark Michael and All Angels day with a discussion on angels and some animated angels. I didn’t prepare a big meal for this festival since it’s just been so busy lately. But I did get around to making Pumpkin Chocolate Chip muffins which was fitting since serving Autumn veggies on this day is traditional.

On September 14th the Church celebrates Holy Cross day. My tradition is to make up some Cross shaped monkey bread. Each year more babies get old enough to help with the process…and the eating.

On September 21st we remember the Apostle Matthew. For this day I pulled out the leftover chocolate coins from St. Nicholas day…don’t tell anyone they were that old. Also, I mixed up some sugar cookies, crosses and coin bags for the despised tax collector who became a disciple of our Lord.
