Dr. Luther’s Small Catechism lesson for the week of October 31, 2021:
[I] THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
IN THE PLAIN FORM IN WHICH THE HEAD OF THE FAMILY
SHALL TEACH IT TO HIS HOUSEHOLD
“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.”
What does this mean?
Answer: We should fear and love God, and so we should not despise his Word and the preaching of the same, but deem it holy and gladly hear and learn it.

Not only reading God’s Word, but hearing it is just as important.
Thank you Tim for this reminder. And a blessed Reformation
Sunday to you and your family. Liz B.
