    History on September

    The name September comes from the Latin septem, meaning seven, since it was the seventh month of the Roman calendar, which began with March. There are 30 days in the month of September, which starts on the same day of the week as December each year but does not end on the same day of the week as any other month in the year. September has three birth flowers: the forget-me-not, the morning glory, and the aster. Forget-me-nots represent love and memories, asters represent love as well, and the morning glory represents unrequited love. The birthstone for the month is the sapphire.

    Thank you To all my friends at Trinity for their cards and messages celebrating 55

    years as an ordained pastor. May God provide relief from the Corona Vi- rus so we may gather in worship and celebrate our Lord’s grace and love.

    Rev. Ronald Meier.

    History on Labor Day Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, pros- perity, and well-being of our country. The first governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed in 1885 and 1886. From these, a movement de- veloped to secure state legislation. The first state bill was introduced into the New York legislature, but the first to become law was passed by Oregon on February 21, 1887. During 1887, four more states – Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York – created the Labor Day holiday by legislative enactment. By the end of the decade Connecticut, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania had followed suit. By 1894, 23 more states had adopted the holiday, and on June 28, 1894, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories.

  • Question 69: Why does God call Himself a

    jealous God?

    Because God is holy

    A. He hates sin and insists on strict and perfect obedience;

    B. He will not share with idols the love and honor we owe Him;

    C. He will punish those who hate Him.

    Catechetical Comments A Series

    THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

    This month we take up The Close of the Commandments:

    What does God say about all these commandments? He says, “I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me,

    but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love Me and keep My commandments.” [Ex. 20: 5–6]

    What does this mean? God threatens to punish all who break these commandments. Therefore, we should fear His wrath and not do anything against them. But He promises grace and every blessing to all who keep these commandments. Therefore, we should also love and trust in Him and gladly do what He commands.

    The Catechism 1991 answers the question: “Why does God call Himself a jealous God?” by saying that God is holy. He hates sin and insists on strict and perfect obedience; He will not share with idols the love and honor we owe Him; He will punish those who hate Him. In support of this it lists the following Scripture passages:

    Ps. 5:
