In Germany it’s Tag der Arbeit

It’s May 1st! In Germany it’s Tag der Arbeit, basically our German Labor Day, a day off from work. In New Ulm, it’s MLC Day. In Germany, union leaders and members gather to demonstrate about their work. I can’t think of a better work about which to demonstrate than the work being done at MLC. Lord, may this important work of preparing leaders for our church’s early childhood centers, schools, and churches be sustained with many prayers and generous gifts today and for many years to come! Move the hearts of your people to lift both the students who prepare there and the adults who serve at our synod’s ministerial college in prayer. Amen
