Hope Center Breakfast
 
I give thanks for the generosity of our congregation … for their time and treasures. On January 26 (-18° F at sunrise), several members joyfully served breakfast to 30 people at the Hope Center in Waukesha. These volunteers and other Church of the Resurrection members donated the food (ham, egg bakes, fruit, bagels, muffins, pastries, milk and juice) that was served.

The Hope Center provides numerous programs, including Outreach Meals. Last year, the Hope Center and its many volunteers served more than 12,000 meals to about 1,000 individuals. More than 14,000 volunteer hours helped serve those meals. Through local support, nearly $200,000 worth of food was donated. Every meal served allows Hope Center guests to save money, which in turn can help provide shelter. Additionally, the social component is priceless.
Thank you for visiting with Hope Center guests and helping support the Hope Center and the many people it serves.

The Safe Babies Healthy Families program's mission is to support families to ensure safe and healthy children through education, support and resources — ultimately ending destructive cycles that can last for generations. We offer prenatal services, childbirth education, parenting programs and play groups. Individualized case management is provided through home visits until the child is kindergarten-ready.
To achieve this, we use a compassionate, holistic approach to mentor and assist at-risk families to create health, social and financial supports. These supports are critical to a safe and stable future. We match parents with a caring professional who acts as a life coach to help them build skills and embrace opportunities that will create lasting, positive change. Ideally, we start working with clients during pregnancy — a critical time to address concerns and needs before the baby arrives to a period of crisis.
Our families remain in our program voluntarily until their child is kindergarten-ready. By partnering with parents who have endured hardships, we celebrate their success as they change the future of their children.

We strive to:
•    prevent child abuse and neglect
•    provide early detection of developmental delays and health issues
•    increase parent knowledge of early child development and improve parenting practices
•    increase children’s school readiness and success.

VBS is for children ages 3 through 5th grade (yes, 5th-graders, we've changed our age range so you can still be part of the fun!). Stay tuned for more information in March.

The Word for Your Week…
The reflections/questions relate to the highlighted passage for the day.

Prayer for your Week
Most holy God, the earth is filled with your glory, and before you angels and saints stand in awe. Enlarge our vision to see your power at work in the world, and by your grace make us heralds of your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
 
Sunday, February 10: Isaiah 6:1-13    I Corinthians 15:1-11       Luke 5:1-11
Have you ever been told to do something that seemed utterly ridiculous? Did you do it anyway? Why or why not?  Does it matter who asks you? Explain.
                
Monday, February 11:     Psalm 115      Judges 5:1-11     1 Corinthians 14:26-40
In this passage, we read Paul’s admonition for women to be silent in church. We in the ELCA (and other ‘mainline’ denominations) interpret that portion of the text on the basis of its context—a deeply patriarchal religion and society which afforded privilege only to a certain category of men. Other faith traditions use this passage to prevent women from holding leadership positions in the church. What is your reaction when you read vss. 34-35? Explain.
 
Tuesday, February 12:     Psalm 115      1 Samuel 9:15-10:1b    1 Timothy 3:1-9
The psalmist compares the God of Israel to the man made idols of silver and gold. God is active and faithful to his people, while idols do nothing. Although we do not worship literal golden calves, what are some of the man made idols which distract us from our one true God? Why do they have such a pull on us?
 
Wednesday, February 13:     Psalm 115    Isaiah 8:1-15            Luke 5:27-32
In this brief passage, Jesus is challenged by the scribes and Pharisees about his practice of eating and drinking with sinners. Jesus responds by saying that he has come to heal the sick, not the well; to call the sinners, not the righteous. Why is this good news for us? Why didn’t the scribes and Pharisees think Jesus’ words and actions were good news?

Thursday, February 14:     Psalm 1     Jeremiah 13:12-19    Acts 13:26-34
How is it that we would ever heed the advice of the wicked instead of following the law of the Lord? The psalmist speaks of the happiness of those who are righteous and obedient. What temptations could lure you to the ‘path of wickedness?’ Explain.
 
Friday, February 15:    Psalm 1        Jeremiah 13:20-27    1 Peter 1:17-2:1
This letter is somewhat of a primer for living the life of a follower of Jesus. We are to take on ever deeper love and trust, and “rid ourselves of all malice, guile, insincerity, envy and slander.”  With which of these do you struggle more: taking on a deeper level of good or ridding yourself of vices? Explain.
 
Saturday, February 16:     Psalm 1      Jeremiah 17:1-4        Luke 11:24-28
Jeremiah prophesies the punishment which Judah will receive for her unfaithfulness. How does this announcement of consequences for sin contrast with John the Baptist’s and Jesus’ calls to repentance? Explain.
