FED eration CONnection Gospel≠Magic Bullet Throughout history, humans have sought the magic bullet—a quick fix for troubles and problems. Even believers sometimes seek magic bullets for their spiritual woes.

Seven centuries before Christ, Judah was decidedly headed down the wrong spiritual path. Some of its kings were godly. Others were blatantly idolatrous. Its sister kingdom, Israel, was already deported for abandoning the Lord. It would never again exist. Judah was at a critical juncture. For too long, idolatry infected its spiritual fabric. If something did not change, it would become like Israel. Isaiah 33 was written at this time. Although it denounces the heathen Assyrians, believers in Judah could see themselves in the law’s statements. The nation had destroyed its relationship with God through idolatry. It betrayed the One who made them his special possession. Its sin would be tolerated no more. There was no magic bullet, no quick fix, for this apostasy. Just as Isaiah 33 announced Assyria’s punishment, Judah also faced God’s righteous wrath for its sin. This was God’s firm decree.

Principal’s Pen, from front page God chastises believers as a means to draw them closer. We may likely reflect on times when God’s loving hand allowed tribulation into our lives. It was his loving correction to us. The magic bullet is as real as Santa, the Easter Bunny, or Bigfoot. It doesn’t exist. There is no quick fix. This is especially true in spiritual matters. God, guide us always to depend on you. You are our only hope and comfort. Jim Grasby is principal of Lakeside Lutheran High. Reach him at 920.648.2321 or jgrasby@llhs.org

Yet, Isaiah 33 also contains gospel comforts. Though Judah would eventually suffer at the hands of Assyria and Babylon, God assured his people that he was still “the sure foundation for [their] times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge” (Isaiah 33:6). Furthermore, he comforted them by declaring that fearing him was the “the key to this treasure.” (Isaiah 33:6). God’s solution for Judah was not a magic bullet. There was no quick fix. The nation would suffer for its sins. But through chastisement, a remnant would be trained in righteousness and serve as those through whom the world’s Savior would come. Today, there is still no quick fix for sin. The only remedy is believing in God’s Son who surrendered his life on the cross, forgiving all sin and giving eternal life to all believers.

5 questions GC faculty “Five Questions with the Faculty” is a light-hearted look at the teaching staff at Lakeside Lutheran. This edition features Mr. Glen Pufahl, who joined the faculty in 2012. He teaches English 10, and directs the Band, Pep Band, Jazz Band, Marching Band, and Instrumental groups. He is also an assistant golf coach for boys and girls and in charge of faculty social events. Here are some other things you may—or may not— know about Mr. Pufahl: A 2000 LL graduate, he and wife Kaitlyn, a pediatric nurse practitioner, are members at St. Paul, Lake Mills. Here are other things you may—or may not— know about Glen: What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday? Golfing, kayaking, grilling, going to Badger football games. When you’re at your fave restaurant, what do you order? Possibly Blue Moon in Madison, where I order the Cajun Burger. What is your favorite movie of all time? The Shawshank Redemption really ranks up there. I do enjoy most movies that Morgan Freeman is in. What’s one of your most humorous moments at LLHS? Band trips are great memory-makers. One moment that really sticks was on July 4. We were on our way to Canada for the Calgary Stampede. We broke a couple records that day. The first was the number of parades marched in one day— successfully completing four full parades in South Dakota. The second broken record—perhaps more impressive—was for one of these parades, how quickly the band got into full uniform, grabbed instruments from under the coach buses, put cases away, and got into parade formation: 3 minutes. Do notice I didn’t say “successfully” completed: while we were in uniform and in formation with instruments marching to the start of the parade route, Mr. Luedtke yelled, “Hey, trumpet player, the suspenders go under your jacket.” What’s one of the most heartwarming moments of your time at LLHS? Any time I get to see our student body witnessing their faith. Catch Mr. Pufahl and the Warrior Band in one of their four Wisconsin parades in June, or look for them in Rhode Island, New York, Connecticut and Indiana in July.

school news E notes: ◊ This spring, hundreds of second (and some first) grade Little Lambs brightened our days with their visits. Mr. Lauber loves getting to be a kid again. ◊ Seven of our LLHS student-artists had their work displayed at the Capitol Conference Art Show at the UW Pyle Center. ◊ Senior Jeremy Nehls (St. John, Juneau) is Lakeside’s first participant in The Youth Apprenticeship (YA) program. YA is designed for high school students who want hands-on learning at a worksite along with classroom instruction. ◊ Mr. Justin Vanderhoof (currently serving at Martin Luther, Neenah) accepted our call for English and Social Studies! He will join us this summer. ◊ Sophomore Collin Schulz (Bethany, Fort) set a new LLHS high jump record. His amazing jump of 6’9 broke the previous record by 3 inches! ◊ Our National Honor Society shoe drive brought in over 400 pairs of shoes! These were given to Soles for Jesus, an organization that sends shoes to Africa. ◊ Our Warriors Forensics team earned another School of Excellence and placed second out of 341 participating schools at the WHSFA State Festival! ◊ The house was packed both nights for the musical comedy, “The Nifty Fifties.” Intermission with Elvis (Pastor Brian Schmidt, Trinity, Caledonia), and donated Coke, Cracker Jack, and ice cream were special treats for all of our guests! ◊ Soph Jacob Horta (St. Peter, Helenville) is LLHS student #1,000 to visit Lighthouse Youth Center in Milwaukee! Pastor Jim Buske (LL ‘93) annually visits Pastor Clark Schultz’s sophomore religion classes, giving teens the opportunity to live their faith in downtown Milwaukee. This is the 12th year of this partnership. ◊ Pastor D and the class of 2018 took the annual senior class visit to State St. They visit Wisconsin Lutheran Chapel, where uni students share spiritual and practical advice for college life and lead devotion. Seniors then conduct video interviews on State Street, asking Are you religious? How does a person get to heaven? Who do you think Jesus was? The answers provide opportunity back in class to discuss how to reach out with the gospel. ◊ A group of Warrior FFA students joined forces with others to assist at Kutz’s 25th Annual Jefferson County 4th Grade Farm Tour for 800 4th graders and guests. ◊ This year’s May Banquet theme was “Jazz in the City.” See videos of the night at the LLHS YouTube channel (youtube.com/user/llhstechclub/videos) ◊ Senior Kelsey Birschbach (Eastside, Madison), was selected by the Wisconsin Fastpitch Softball Coaches Association to be on the Senior All-Star Division 2/3 Gray team in June. ◊ Eight of 14 German students who took the national proficiency exam received recognition; two, sophomore Gilbert Haw (St. Paul, Lake Mills) and junior Noelle Gates (St. Andrew, Middleton), finished with gold medal recognition. ◊ The recent Teacher Appreciation Week in May was full of shout-outs, treats, and thankfulness for all our teachers do for LLHS all year through!
