Two great Lutheran musicians, Bach and Handel, both wrote on the bottom of their compositions "SDG", standing for "Soli Deo Gloria", Latin that means To God Alone the Glory.

The third in our Sola Series: Sola Gratia (Grace Alone). This is the source of all that God gives to us. “By grace…” (Ephesians 2:8).

And then God gives us even more. [Organ - Pentecost 17]

This is where it all began. And this is how it is meant to continue. (Due to technical issues, there is no recording and no podcast from this service.) [Organ/Choir - Pentecost 15]

While we believe that God is love, we sometimes wonder why our loving God seems silent in the face of either tragic world events or dire personal need.
