From the Church Fathers: (Gregory of Nazianzus, On the Son 4.3)

Next is the fact of His being called Servant and serving many well, and that it is a great thing for Him to be called the Child of God. For in truth He was in servitude to flesh and to birth and to the conditions of our life with a view to our liberation, and to that of all those whom He has saved, who were in bondage under sin. What greater destiny can befall humanity’s humble state than that it should be intermingled with God and by this intermingling should be deified, and that we should be so visited by the Dayspring from on high, that even that holy thing that should be born should be called the Son of the Highest, and that there should be bestowed on Him a name that is above every name? And what else can this be than God?–and that every knee should bow to Him that was made of no reputation for us, and that mingled the form of God with the form of a servant, and that “all the house of Israel should know that God has made Him both Lord and Christ”? For all this was done by the action of the Begotten and by the good pleasure of Him that begat Him.

MEMBER INFORMATION NEEDED for some who have died in the past. Rev. Brech has researched all the funeral and burial records from the congregation during the last year. He has a list of people with little to no information. That list is posted on the bulletin board. He would like to have this project done by our 75th Anniversary Celebration.
