God has worked through mothers to bring life and care

LA GRANDE — La Grande’s Faith Lutheran Church is posting the weekly sermon on its website, www.lgfaithlcms.org. This week’s message will focus on John 14:1 in which Christ proclaims, “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in Me.” He follows this with very assuring words of God the Father’s house having many rooms that he is preparing for us, and he promises to come again to take his faithful with him. If we focus on this good news, our hearts will not be troubled.

This Sunday we give thanks to God for our mothers, whom God has worked through to bring us life and care.

Trusting in the Lord helps us overcome difficulties

NORTHEAST OREGON — Members of the local and regional congregations of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the “Come, Follow Me” lesson for the week of May 11-17 will study Mosiah 18-24 in the Book of Mormon, which discusses the covenant of baptism, baptism by immersion, and the need to be united in our beliefs. This lesson also reminds us that God can make our burdens light and teaches us that trusting in the Lord doesn’t always prevent difficulties, but it does help us overcome them. Access to these scriptures and lesson material can be obtained by downloading a mobile app called Gospel Library, which is free for anyone interested.

George Chadwick, president of the La Grande Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has taken this opportunity to remind us that “during these times of concern over the current pandemic we should all remember that the Lord is in charge and is aware of us individually. We can look to him for comfort, peace, and guidance.”
