A great new children's book!

Just received in the Resource Center from a pastor in our synod:

Miracle of the Moringa Tree written by Hank Bruce and Tomi Jill Folk with illustrations by Miho Komatsu. It even comes with a sample of the Moringa seeds. Dr. Lowell Fuglie invested his life researching the moringa as a resource to end starvation, hunger, and malnutrition, and to provide safe drinking water. His humanitarian eforts in Africa have saved untold thousands of lives, and will continue to impact people around the world. On April 21, 2010, he passed away, but his influence lives on.

Ounce for ounce, this is how dried moringa leaf powder compares with some other foods that are good for us to eat: 7 times the Vitamin C as there is in oranges; 3 times the iron as there is in spinach; 3 times the potassium as there is in bananas; 4 times the Vitamin A as there is in carrots; 4 times the calcium and 2 times the protein as there is in milk. The leaf powder can be added to water or food like cereals, gravies, soups, or vetetables, to add vitamins and minerals. Ground up seeds can be put in muddy, unsafe water and it will turn to clear, safe water in about an hour to drink or to cook with.

This is truly an amazing book, one that children and adults alike will enjoy! Check it out today! Call 715-833-1153 or email or come and visit at 1005 Oxford Avenue, Eau Claire, WI.

The latest resources at the Center...

You will be pleased at some of the new resources that are gracing the shelves of your Synod Resource Center:

Just received today - October 13, 2011 - three new Bible studies from the Book of Faith series.
One is for the season of Advent. Four sessions from various scripture references. This will be great for the "waiting season" coming up soon;
The book of Ephesians is exciting with four sessions - short, but dynamic, enough for most people to commit;
Signs of the Kingdom - a study in Matthew for seven sessions.

These will be very helpful in getting parishioners into the habit of Bible study.

We have lots of resources for Advent/Christmas/Epiphany that will help your planning.

A new shipment of Spark Storybook Bibles arrived today - on sale for $12; the hard cover Spark Study Bible for $16; and the hard cover Lutheran Study Bible for $26.

Come in and see us soon!
