Our February Playlist theme is Listen. If we told you that young people are listening to and learning from a woman who is nearly 100 years old on TikTok, would you believe us? Click the link below to visit our Adult page to meet this amazing woman.
I’m a Lutheran
February is Black History Month. Sunday morning is often described as the most segregated hour in the United States. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is a predominantly white church, but it’s Darryl W. Jones home. He grew up in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and attended St. James Lutheran Church. His family was the only African American family in the congregation at that time. Click the link below to visit our Adult page to hear more of his story.
Be a Better Listener
We expect our kids to listen to us, but are we good listeners for them? We can all learn to be better listeners. Click the link below to visit our Children’s page to learn more.
