Lenten Service at Concordia School

By Pastor Walter Ries, Jr.

On Friday, March 2nd, our Concordia School children gathered for their Lenten service in which they recited Bible verses and hymns from memory to over 300 people. they sang ‘Stricken, Smitten, and Afflicted’, ‘Christ the Life of all the Living’ and two liturgical songs, ‘Holy, Holy, Holy’ and ‘Lamb of God’. Six short meditations of Law and Gospel interspersed the service allowing the assembled to meditate on the life of Christ flawlessly lived in love towards us and faithfulness to our Heavenly Father. The entire school body concluded the service by reciting from memory Isaiah 53:1-7, of the life of our Lord poured out in love on all the cross on behalf of all humanity.
