“Why would you put yourself through such abuse?”  She was incredulous.  A friend of mine with whom I was participating on an academic project, found it quite silly that someone as “nerdy” as she considered me to be, would willingly endure the rigors imposed by a rather tyrannical basketball coach.  She was even more surprised by my answer.
“Because I earned the right,” I said.  I explained to her that the privilege of playing for the school was earned and not to be taken lightly.  The coach and all the players were committed to being the best they could be, and so, we endured the shouting and the pushing and the endless repetition of drills.  Because we had all worked hard, not only in practice, but in our courses, we were offered the opportunity to work even harder…not for ourselves…but for the team—for the school.  
Join us this weekend where we will explore the Reformation insight that God’s grace affords us the opportunity and freedom to obey God’s will, as we never have before.  We gather for worship at 5:30 pm on Saturday, and at 8:30 and 11:00 am on Sunday.  See you there!

AmazonSmile – A New Opportunity 
Incarnation Lutheran has recently registered with the AmazonSmile program.  This program allows consumers (like you and I) to shop on the AmazonSmile website (smile.amazon.com) for the same products you would shop for at Amazon.com.  The difference is AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of your purchase to Incarnation Lutheran if you select them when you login on the website.
How does AmazonSmile work?
