“One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,

God is present with His people each week as we gather around His Word and sacraments. He is present in His beauty which is shown through His steadfast love and mercy. He shelters and protects us by giving us His Son Jesus whose gifts are eternal and freely given. Fear not. The Lord is here. Now and always.
