In Worship This Weekend
Preaching: Pastor Steve Knudson
Sermon: "Modern Miracles:Food"
Synopsis: Isaiah invites those who have no money to come and eat!
We make that same invitation in 2017 at First Lutheran to hundreds of people a year on Saturday nights. A man from the Midwest in our generation, Norman Borlaug, is known as "the father of the Green Revolution." He is credited with saving over a billion people worldwide from starvation and was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1970 in recognition of his contributions to world peace through increasing food supply. Is this not Christ working miracles today through our human efforts?
Scripture: Isaiah 55:1-5; Matthew 14:13-21 NRSV
