The Bible, Television, and Outreach Headline February's Action in Ministry
February's sizing up to be another informative month on The Lutheran Hour's Action in Ministry segment. Action in Ministry segments feature Mark Eischer, senior producer for The Lutheran Hour, and Rev. Dr. Gregory Seltz, Speaker for The Lutheran Hour. Each week they speak with guests on a variety of topics that pertain to ministry and outreach.
We kicked February off with Megan Panarusky, Outreach project manager at LHM, talking about the Project Connect booklet, First-Class Faith Sharing on February 5. As one passionate about sharing her faith, she reminds us how talking about God's love in Christ is central to connecting with others in meaningful ways.
On February 12, Jim Arand, associate director of The Lutheran Hour, spoke to the recently completed project of releasing nine classic episodes on DVD of This is the Life, LHM's long-running television drama. Tackling tough topics like prison life, bogus preachers, lost children, and marital discord, the program was groundbreaking in many ways -- and remains so today.
February 19 saw Rev. Dr. Tony Cook in the LHM studios. As the new director of U.S. Ministries, he spoke to the content of the Project Connect booklet When in Doubt, Read the Book. Cook reminded the viewer that "Christianity is not about what we can do for God in order to be saved but, instead, it's about what God has done for us in providing salvation in Jesus."
Typically, each week AIM features the resource the interview is based on, giving viewers the chance to watch, read, listen, download for FREE, and/or buy a copy. To check out these brief interviews, simply go to the AIM link by clicking here, which takes you to The Lutheran Hour page. Then click on "Action in Ministry" in the right-hand column, and it will open up the various videos.
The Season of Christ's Passion Is about to Begin
Next week ushers in the season of Lent. What a time of the year this is for Christians around the world as they consider the dramatic spectacle that ran its course in Jerusalem 2,000 years ago. In this year's seasonal devotions for Lent, From the Cradle to the Empty Grave, we turn our reverential gaze to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith.
These brief meditations, drawn primarily from the Gospel of Luke, show Jesus trekking the countryside and preaching the Good News, healing those with infirmities, rebuking Satan and his foul temptations, breaking down His message for His disciples, and ever so steadily making His way to the onerous weight of the cross that awaited Him at Golgotha.
And on that bloody hill, what would seemingly end in despair, God made into His ultimate triumph: the redemption of mankind through the shed blood of His Son, resurrecting Him to reign forevermore at His right hand.
From the Cradle to the Empty Grave can be read online and heard as a podcast. It can also be received as an e-mail subscription throughout the Lenten season. Congregations are encouraged to download, personalize and print these seasonal meditations to give to members or offer them to guests and visitors as a resource for outreach. These devotions have been available online as of December 10. The audio version will begin on Ash Wednesday, March 1, 2017. You can find them by clicking here.
Also again this year LHM is featuring Lenten devotions in Spanish. Allí me verán ("You'll See Me There") will be available online to download, print, read, and receive by e-mail on Ash Wednesday, March 1, 2017. You can find them by clicking here. They were written by Rev. Héctor Hoppe, senior editor multilingual, at Concordia Publishing House.
To take full advantage of these devotions, be sure to go to Lenten page above and click on the side link called "Outreach Ideas." There you will find several suggestions for sharing these devotions with others.

Helping Others Is What It's All About
That's the Men's NetWork WORK DAY in a nutshell, which is coming up in a little more than two months.
Saturday, April 29, is the day!
We're already hearing about WORK DAY projects and the ways groups are planning on serving their local communities and neighborhoods this year.
Registration details and sign-up pages are on the Men's NetWork homepage!
Don't forget (as if we'd let you) that a core WORK DAY objective is helping those who may have no connection whatsoever to your church -- or any church, for that matter. Helping folks like this pretty much guarantees your work has a genuine outreach component to it. Thinking along these lines (i.e. doing work off your church's campus) can lead to some outstanding possibilities of helping others in need.
Ready to go? Take a few minutes and register your group and project. You can do this by clicking here.
We look forward to hearing from you now and when your project is completed. In other words, when the last hammer has been slung, be sure to send us a few pictures of what you did, and toss in a few action shots of the work in progress too. These are "good as gold" when encouraging others to do their own projects, by giving them examples.
