David Otten: St. Michael and All Angels
Greetings from Faith Lutheran Church in Eldorado. Last Sunday Faith Lutheran celebrated the feast of St. Michael and All Angels. This is a joyous time to remember how God created not only the physical world but a spiritual world which we can't see unless God opens our eyes to it -- as in the case of Elisha's servant in 2 Kings 6:16, 17. There have been many false ideas about angels through the centuries and therefore I want to bring out the Biblical facts about them.
