FED eration CONnection

God’s “light therapy” Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is a depression that typically starts in fall and may continue through the winter. Its symptoms include lethargy and moodiness. Phototherapy, the use of bright light to regulate the body’s internal clock and relieve depression, is one effective treatment for SAD. Christians, too, face a spiritual disease that may also bear the acronym SAD – sin and death – for the hopelessness it brings. In PRINCIPAL’S PEN spite of God’s assurance that our sins are forgiven through Christ and they have been removed “as far as the east is from the west,” (Psalm 103:12) there are times when our sin haunts us. It is the devil’s ploy to lead us from God’s promises into doubt and despair. King David provides a vivid example of sin and death from his own life. Psalm 32— written before he confessed his sins of adultery, murder, and conspiracy—depicts clearly how sin can destroy a believer. Phrases like “wasted away,” “hand was heavy,” and “strength was sapped” dramatically show sin’s ability to bring us down physically, emotionally and spiritually. What is the treatment? It is God’s “light therapy” found in the good news of the gospel. After the law has produced its effect, the good news of Christ, “the light of the world,” (John 9:5) brings peace from sins forgiven, offers joy for the future, and produces the sure hope of heaven. Jesus Christ is the true phototherapy for all who trust in him!

school news and notes:

International student shares impressions of U.S. & LLHS by Ryan Beyer, Warrior Times Weekly reporter

Ingvild Wik: Lakeside Lutheran senior. Some might be good friends with her. Others might have just heard that she is a transfer student from Norway, and a few students might not know her at all. For those who do not know Ingvild, this profile invites readers to meet her and then greet her whenever they might get a chance to see her in person. For those who already know her, there are still interesting things to learn too, like what goat cheese tastes like. Ingvild is this year’s international student. She was born and raised in Norway. She has two parents, and two brothers, Ola, the older brother, and Halvor, her younger brother. Her Norwegian schools have a different way of doing things compared to Lakeside, such as rotating subjects into 5 class periods throughout the day. Not every subject is taught each day. Not only that, but all students have their own laptops to take notes on, and there are no schoolsponsored athletic teams.

Ingvild jumped right into student life by running with the Girls Cross Country team.

In Norway, Ingvild enjoys snowboarding, skiing, swimming, playing soccer, and hanging out with friends. Some of her favorite Norwegian foods are brown cheese, or goat cheese, caviar, and lefse.

Ingvild and fellow Physics senior Jordan Gaal made their way into the science department history books when they broke a longstanding record for the height of a tower, made from only two sheets of office paper and a halfmeter of tape.

Norway is about 4,000 miles away from Wisconsin, though, and food 4,000 miles away from Norway might seem a little bit different. To Ingvild, the cultural difference that made the biggest impression was the size of things here in America, mainly when it comes to our food. Just the sheer amount of it, the variety, and the serving size as contrasted to what it is in Norway was noticeably different. The food, however, is also one of the things that she loves most about America. With her favorite food being a Culver’s Cheese Butter Burger, Ingvild is a true Wisconsinite. Ingvild does miss Norway, her friends, and her family, but she says she’s not homesick. A lot of it is has to do with the people, all the friends that she has already made, she says. Ingvild sums it up by saying, “The people here at Lakeside are amazing.” This article was adapted from the version that ran in the October 4, 2013 edition of the LLHS student newspaper.

Congratulations to the Lakeside Lutheran Boys Soccer team, who ended its 2013 conference season riding a 15game unbeaten streak (13-0-2), and at the time of printing, had also claimed the Regional championship in the WIAA state Division 4 tournament series. Coach Pastor Clark Schultz has led the program from its inception at LLHS seven years ago.

input requested for long-range plan

We asked last month: here’s an opportunity to assist us

Are you: a Lakeside alum? a past or current Lakeside parent? a current student? a Federation pastor or teacher?

If you have a connection to Lakeside— whether it be a past or current relationship—we are asking for your perspective on various aspects of our ministry. Your feedback—through an online survey—will assist us in defining a vision to take us into the next five years of our ministry. This confidential survey will be available through the first week of November and should take about 10 minutes to complete. Please go to:

http://goo.gl/IzWSbI (capitalization matters)

Again, if you have questions or contributions at this point, please contact Principal Jim Grasby or Executive Director Scott Gronholz.
