We  remember those members who are celebrating birthdays this week -- Marla Manley, Richard Buuck, Theresa Kock, David Mourey, Jr., and Aaron D. Conrad. We also remember our public school teachers,  as they begin   their 1999-2000 school year--  Tony Bergman, Kristie Brown, Christine Bultemeier, Cindy DesJean,  Jan Heimann, Dave Miller, and Monica Stoppenhagen.  May the Lord continue to guide, direct, and bless their lives.

We extend our Christian sympathy to the family and friends of Louise Fuhrmann, who was called to her heavenly home on Saturday, August 21st, and was given Christian burial on Wednesday, August 25th.  May the God of all comfort be with this family.

We remember in our prayers this morning Georgianna Alvarez (Addy Schuller's sister) who is in an Ohio hospital recovering from burns, Alan Bergdall (great-grandson of Olga Reifsteck) who is a patient at Parkview,  Andy Buuck who  is a patient at University of Cincinnati Hospital, and Ernie Muller who continues  under doctor's care.  May the Great Physician grant health and strength to them and all who are in need of His presence in their lives.

The bible says, "No man can tame the tongue; it is a restless evil and full of deadly poison."  Hear Dr. Schultz's message, "The Tongue is Dangerous,"" on The Lutheran Hour.  The show airs on WOWO at 7:35 a.m. (8:05 a.m. on 92.7 FM) on Sunday.

A sign-up sheet for the Glenbrook Bazaar is located in the south entrance way.  The bazaar will be on Friday and Saturday, September 10 and 11, with set up on Thursday night, September 9.  Your help will be needed to make this a successful sale this year.  (The bazaar dates coincide with a wedding, the SDR  workshop, and "Cornfusion" as well as other conflicts.)  Please check your calendars and see if you can fit this activity in your schedules.  Profits from the sale will go towards the new church roof.  (AAL is again using this as a "Helping Hands" project.)
