Changes to this site Last Updated 03/18

To keep the WT in place, we have to bring back visitors to the site. One of the problems with the old site was the "signal to noise" ratio -- the good lutheran content v.s. the "jokes", "silly comments", and "political topics" that predominated the old site. Please make an effort to post only Lutheran or Christian content on the site.

Our Lord Jesus Christ rose from the dead on this day, winning the victory for us over death and the grave. If that doesn’t elicit an “Alleluia,” I don’t know what will. “Alleluia” is a Hebrew word originally, and it means…See More
