A Happy and Blessed New Year to You!
Many new things have occurred or will occur during this time of year.
• New calendar: Wow! It’s 2015!
• New clothes and other gifts.
• New members of Trinity: Six families and two individuals
became members of Trinity Lutheran Church in December. We
praise God for adding them to our church family. Two of the
families also had students new to our school this year.
• New lives as husband and wife: Three children of staff
members were married in December, including my son.
• New school year registration begins by late January 2015. We
currently have 20 more students enrolled than in the previous
year. While many of those were 3K or 4K students, we had eight
students transfer from local public schools. You are the best
“advertisers” and promoters of our school when you share the
great things that our students experience at our school.
• New budget year: Our school is Trinity’s main mission. Your
financial support is greatly needed: regular, generous Sunday
offerings, tuition payments, SCRIP usage, fundraiser support,
employer matching gifts, and special gifts.
• New man and woman: In Luther’s explanation of the Sacrament
of Holy Baptism, he writes, “[Baptism] indicates that the Old
Adam in us should by daily contrition and repentance be drowned
and die with all sins and evil desires, and that a new man should
daily emerge and arise to live before God in righteousness and
purity forever.” We praise and thank God for the new life we
receive daily though His mercy and forgiveness of sins.
So, as we begin 2015, we sing and pray these words:
With the Lord begin your task; Jesus will direct it.
For His aid and counsel ask; Jesus will perfect it.
Ev’ry morn with Jesus rise, and when day is ended,
In His name then close your eyes; be to Him commended.
Thus, Lord Jesus, ev’ry task be to You commended;
May Your will be done, I ask, until life is ended.
Jesus, in Your name begun be the day’s endeavor;
Grant that it may well be done to Your praise forever.

Second and Third Petitions
of The Lord’s Prayer
Thy kingdom come.
4 +
What does this mean? The
kingdom of God certainly comes by
itself without our prayer, but we pray
in this petition that it may come to us
also. How does God’s kingdom come?
God’s kingdom comes when our
heavenly Father gives us His Holy
Spirit, so that by His grace we believe
His holy Word and lead godly lives
here in time and there in eternity.
Thy will be done on earth as
it is in heaven.
What does this mean? The good
and gracious will of God is done even
without our prayer, but we pray in this
petition that it may be done among us
also. How is God’s will done? God’s will
is done when He breaks and hinders
every evil plan and purpose of the
devil, the world, and our sinful nature,
which do not want us to hallow God’s
name or let His kingdom come; and
when He strengthens and keeps us
firm in His Word and faith until we
die. This is His good and gracious will.
