Deliver Us: Jesus Sets Us Free
This year the narrative of Jesus’ victory over sin and death is viewed against another emancipating act of God: Israel’s exodus from Egypt. Seen against the Old Testament backdrop of Israel’s captivity, Deliver Us: Jesus Sets Us Free illuminates the Passion story with crisp clarity and insight. Using Scriptures from the Gospels and the book of Exodus, these meditations show God at work—calling us from sin’s oppression to a new life in Jesus Christ. As God has acted in history, calling and redeeming people everywhere, so too today does He offer us His freedom—and fellowship—accomplished once and for all through the cross of Christ.
These Lenten devotions were written by Dr. Kari Vo. As an added feature, there are reflection questions for each day’s messages that can be used for self-study or as prompts for discussion when reflecting as a group.
The cover art for the Canadian devotions was designed by Amelia Hatzitolios of Barrie Ontario.
We also invite our Portuguese speaking friends to take part in the Lenten devotions offered by our partner Lutheran Hour Ministries – Brazil.

It’s about Life
We believe that Life is a gift, a precious gift of God, that is to be used to glorify Him and to serve others.
With its joys and delights our earthly Life can be wonderful but at times Life can also be difficult, with pain and even sorrow. There are times in Life when each of us needs some assistance or guidance as we face these challenges. For our resources click here.

For a very special and uniquely Canadian broadcast of The Lutheran Hour about Life click here to listen to the October 7th, 2018 message from guest speaker Rev. Perry Hart of Kitchener Ontario. Pastor Hart’s message “Life is a precious gift” warns against our culture’s devaluation of life and calls us to see ourselves and others as precious people, created by God, redeemed by Christ. (Genesis 1:27)
