The Scribe – January 2020, Volume I

The Real Work of Christmas

When the song of angels is stilled, when the star in the sky is gone, when the kings and princes are home, when the shepherds are back with their flock, the real work of Christmas begins… To find the lost, to heal the broken, to feed the hungry, to release the prisoner, to rebuild nations, to bring peace among brothers, to make music in the heart.

Sunday, January 5 – The visit of the wise men

Sunday, January 12 – New Member Class begins

Enjoy The Scribe’s new format!

This allows us to continue to provide a hard copy to those who prefer one, while making it easier to upload to our website (available at under the Church Media tab.) Either way, we hope to continue keeping our members and guests up-to-date on the latest happenings at Black Forest Lutheran Church.
