A blessed Ash Wednesday! We give thanks to God for another year to walk the way of the Cross these 40 days of Lent; to watch and pray; to join with those generations of Christians before us and take part in the three disciplines of Lent: prayer, fasting and almsgiving. May God bless our Lenten journey as we give a thankful response to our Lord Jesus for His great sacrifice in our place. #AshWednesday

The week before Christmas, Deaconess-elect Phyllis Yee read to the 1st grade class at Trinity Lutheran School in Hicksville, NY. She read Lutheran Friends of the Deaf's Bible Book - The First Christmas, while Barbara Lewis, Executive Assistant to President & CEO Michael F. Killian, interpreted. The children were taught ASL signs such as Jesus, God, and Christmas. Fun was had by all!
