Reformation - Our Savior Lutheran Church

october 2012

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and

my de- | liverer,*

my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge,

my shield, and the horn of my salvation,

my | stronghold.

I call upon the Lord, who is worthy | to be

praised,*

and I am saved from my | enemies.

In my distress I called upon the Lord;

to my God I | cried for help.*

From his temple he heard my voice,

and my cry to him | reached his ears.

The Lord lives, and blessed | be my rock,*

and exalted be the God of my sal- | vation—

For this I will praise you, O Lord,

among the | nations,*

and sing | to your name.

Glory be to the Father and | to the Son*

and to the Holy | Spirit;

as it was in the be- | ginning,*

is now, and will be forever. | Amen.

Meet Our Elders...

My name is Mel Derong, and God has blessed me to serve as an elder for our church.

I was born and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana. I was reared at St Paul Lutheran

Church in Shreveport. I graduated from Texas A&M with a civil engineering

degree in 1976. I also graduated from the University of Houston with a MBA in

1981. I have lived in Houston/Katy since attending A&M. I work in the natural

gas pipeline industry. My wife and I have been members of Our Savior since 1982.

My three children are also members. Prior to serving as an elder, I was on the Board

of Parochial Education for a number of years. I enjoy playing softball in a 50+

league, reading history, attending A&M home football games, and am active with

the Boy Scouts. My elder zone includes zip codes 77449, 77450, 77492, 77493,

77469, 77478, 77459, 77410, and 77478.

My name is Alvin Fritsche. I am a native Houstonian,

born at St. Joseph Hospital in 1940. I was baptized

by Dr. John W. Behnken at Trinity Lutheran Church in the old Gothic sanctuary

on Riesner Street. I attended school at Trinity and was confirmed by Dr. Oliver

R. Harms in the present sanctuary in 1955. I’m a 1959 graduate of the original

Lutheran High School and a 1964 graduate of the University of Houston. I served

for six years in the U. S. Navy as a hospital corpsman, two years of the six spent

attached to the Marine Corps.

My ancestor, Peter Fritsche, immigrated to Texas from Germany with Rev. Jan

Killian on the ship Ben Nevis in 1854. Both Peter Fritsche and Rev. Killian are

buried in the St. Paul Lutheran Church cemetery in Serbin, Lee County, Texas.

In June of 1963, I married Cheryl Barnes, my wife of nearly 50 years, at Trinity,

Downtown. We have been blessed with four children; three sons and one daughter, and

nine beautiful grandchildren. We have been members of Our Savior since 1995.

I retired in 2009 after 40+ years in construction sales. My interests are duck, goose,

and deer hunting, fishing, travel and art. I am an artist; my oil paintings include landscapes, still lifes and harbor/

boat scenes. My paintings hang in the DaVinci Gallery in Tomball, Texas.

It has been my pleasure to serve as an elder at Our Savior for members in the 77091 elder zone, many of whom

are my neighbors in Candlelight Oaks. I especially enjoy serving as a communion assistant.

My name is Lonnie Roesel. I was born in Houston, Texas. I am a lifelong Missouri

Synod Lutheran. My wife, Lovera and I have been members of Our Savior for

15 years. Our two daughters and their husbands and our five granddaughters are

also members. I have been in the welding equipment business for 42 years and

have traveled worldwide. I have had the pleasure of having Lovera accompany

me on some of these trips and we also have a number of good friends in different

countries. I enjoy making calls in my elder district, including hospital calls and

calls on members that are in assisted living facilities and nursing homes. My elder

district is made up of the following zip codes: 77069, 77070, 77375, 77377 and

77396.

OSL School News Serving Families for Jesus Christ

Chapel at OSL

Chapel for our Kindergarten – 8th grade students is held each

Monday morning beginning at 8:20 a.m. Our first chapel mission

project will be through the Lutheran Heritage Foundation. The

mission is called Mon Ami, Jesus: Sharing Jesus in Africa and Haiti.

We are also continuing our tradition of chapel families. Each of our

teachers, K-8, have a family of students in grades K-8. This gives

our students an opportunity to know other students that are not in

their class, and our older students are able to help the students in

younger grades during the chapel service.

Hymn of the Month

As a Lutheran, the month of October is always very meaningful. What’s

really exciting is the festival of Reformation. This festival reminds us of so

many things: A man’s courage and trust in God to go up against the most

powerful church in the world and declare its fallacies; God’s way of bringing

His church back into the light; and the beginnings of a church body of which

we are proud members.

When one thinks of hymns for Reformation, “A Mighty Fortress” most

certainly comes to mind. Martin Luther, among being a Bible Scholar and

teacher was also a great hymn writer. He wrote many hymns, all used to teach

and spread the gospel to people around the world. You may take notice that

every hymn we sing in the Learn By Heart series, was written by Luther in

order to teach the six chief parts of the catechism. Luther once wrote, “If any

man despises music, for him I have no liking; for all music is a gift and grace of

God, not an invention of men. Thus it drives out the devil and makes people

cheerful... Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest

treasure in the world. It controls our thoughts, minds, hearts, and spirits.”

In what has become known as the “Battle Hymn of the Reformation,” Luther

constantly reminds us of two things— First, that the devil is real, and second,

that God has given us the power to conquer him with His Word in the name

of Jesus. Verse 1 begins with the assurance that God is our fortress. He is

our protection and our strength. Verse 2 reminds that we cannot do this on

our own. Jesus, “the valiant one,” is fighting for us in this battle we face.

The ending of this verse also reminds us that the victory is already won.

Verse 3 brings home the harsh reality that the devil is alive and active, eager

to devour us. The verse also tells us that there is no reason to be afraid. One

little word, JESUS, can fell him. Verse 4 finishes with the fact that Jesus has

done everything needed for our salvation. Nothing we have in this world

can save us. “Goods, fame, child or wife, let these all be gone, they yet have

nothing won.” God’s kingdom remains forever!

In addition to this hymn and our catechism hymns, Luther also wrote such

hymns as “From Heaven Above to Earth I Come,” “Lord, Keep Us Steadfast

in Thy Word,” and “To Shepherds as They Watched by Night.” As we sing

the great hymns of the church, let us remember that we are singing the Word

of God. Let us rejoice and make music to the Lord.

Welcome Hope Edmondson...

Hi, I am Hope! I am the new part-time receptionist. I

have been around OSL since 1993. My two sons Chuck

& Jojo Resendez attended OSL school & LHN. I was

active in room mother and PTL board functions until

they graduated high school. I joined OSL in 1997.

My first career was very interesting. I owned a corporate

legal defense consulting firm for 18 years. I investigated,

evaluated and mediated complex high profile corporate

litigation for over 28 years.

This summer I returned from a two year sabbatical near

Castroville & Hondo Texas where I explored my German

and Dutch ancestry. I am glad to be back in my primary

home of 17 years located near the church.

My family and extended family, (in particular Kaden my

3 yr-old grandson) are my greatest joy.

life from the moment of conception. Houston

2012. Zion Lutheran Church is located at 907 Hicks

Street, in Tomball, Texas 77375 (ph-281-351-5757.)

In today's world, we hear about the "Life Issue". It

is not simply an issue among many issues being

debated in the political arena, and it is not just the

abortion issue. The Life Issue certainly involves the

scourge of abortion but also many other matters,

such as harvesting stem cells, in vitro fertilization,

Advanced Directives ("Living Wills"), and questions

concerning end of life medical care. Houston

Lutherans For Life will be presenting on a variety of

topics to help equip us as Faithful Christians in this

world so focused on darkness and death.

Zion would sincerely appreciate your advance

registration for this Seminar so that the volunteers

at Zion Lutheran Church can insure there is enough

coffee, juice, fruit, donuts, and chairs for everyone.

To quote OSL’s Rev. Dr. Laurence L. White from a

speech he gave nearly 14 years ago in California:

“America will not turn from the

path of destruction until the

Christians of this land stop

blending in and going along. We

cannot allow ourselves, our

churches to be used and abused

by politicians, by political parties.

God is not the mascot of the

Republican Party. God is not a

Democrat. God is not even an

American, which may come as

something of a shock. But of this

one thing, we can be absolutely

certain, the Lord God Almighty

hates the murder of innocent, unborn children.”

¥ “Sexual Purity” (45 min.; Grade 6 to High School.)

¥ “Martin Luther on the Life Issues” (45 min.; Jr. High School to
