Autumn Greetings and Happy Michaelmas aka St. Michael the Archangel Day!
Vaughnsville Craft and Vendor Show Reflections: I will make this as brief as possible. Jesus died and resurrected for you for the forgiveness of all of your sins! Glory to Yahweh, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit! We will have a Bible Reading in a little bit and, with grad school winding down for a while, I plan on doing a lot more blogging in the near future like old times. I have a lot of great ideas for blog posts and I want to look at more theology over the next several weeks starting next week and moving forward into Christmas, since I'll be done with my Thesis Proposal Class at American Military University (AMU) on Sunday night around midnight. I probably won't start my masters thesis on Holy Baptism until January 2022, because the Minster Oktoberfest is next weekend, we have a lot of awesome craft shows coming up in October and November, and we are building up to Christmas with the Christmas Shopping Season. Please remember, as you give Christmas gifts to friends and family members, that those Christmas gifts symbolize Yahweh's Greatest Gifts to humanity: His Only Begotten Son Jesus the Messiah, the Holy Spirit, Holy Baptism, Faith, and forgiveness of sins in Confession and Absolution.
We are still planning on having the Second Annual Vaughnsville Craft and Vendor Show at the Vaughnsville Community Center in Downtown Vaughnsville, Ohio in the Vaughnsville Community Center, which used to be the Vaughnsville School, before Vaughnsville and Columbus Grove Schools merged together. We are still looking for vendors to participate in both the Lighthouse Baptist Church Fall Vendor Market on W. Grand Avenue in Lima, Ohio on Saturday October 16, 2021 and the Vaughnsville Craft and Vendor Show on Saturday October 30, 2021 and both shows run from 11 AM to 5 PM.
The good news Corona Virus-wise is, that the Ohio House and Ohio Senate have decided, that facial coverings and Corona Virus Vaccines are optional in Ohio and that Governor DeWine (R?) and the Ohio Health Department cannot shut churches and businesses down in Ohio for any public heath crisis. With that being said, I encourage you to do, what you feel is best for you in regards to facial coverings and Corona Virus Vaccines. I survived Corona Virus twice during Early Advent 2019 and Early Advent 2020 and Dr. Rand Paul said, that I do NOT need to get any Corona Virus Vaccine, because I'm a Corona Virus survivor. I love that advice, because I would rather get Corona Virus a third time than get a needle stuck in my arm. Facial coverings and Corona Vaccines are optional for both vendors and shoppers at both the 2021 Lighthouse Baptist Church Fall Vendor Market on Saturday October 16, 2021 and the 2021 Vaughnsville Craft and Vendor Show on Saturday October 30, 2021. Granted I think, I will probably need to social distance the tables and booths at both shows, but there are worse things.

13 I give thee charge in the Sight of God, Who quickeneth all things, and before Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed a good Confession; 14 That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukable, until the Appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: 15 Which in His Times He shall shew (show), Who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; 16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the Light Which no man can approach unto; Whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to Whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen.
17 Charge them, that are rich in this world, that they be not high-minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the Living God, Who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; 18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; 19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on Eternal Life. 20 O Timothy, keep that, which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: 21 Which some professing have erred concerning the Faith. Grace be with thee. Amen" (KJV 1611).

My Green Irish Angel Statues: My Green Irish Angel Statues are really cute! They are only $1 each and they make great gifts. I have three kinds: 1. Cross-Bearing Angels, 2. Praying Angels, and 3. Angels Holding Butterflies. I like the Cross-Bearing Angels the best, because they are carrying Crosses. Each one bearing a Cross reminds us, that Jesus died on the True Cross to save every single person from death, Hell, Satan, Satan's Demons, Original Sin from Adam and Eve, and their personal sins. They're available exclusively at The Menagerie behind Beer Barrel in the St. Marys Business Complex in St. Marys, Ohio.
Stores Carrying My Books: My books, which I’ve written and published, are also available at the following stores: Brunner News Agency on Flanders Avenue in Lima, Ohio, Jen’s Furniture and Collectibles (JFC) on High Street in St. Marys, Ohio, The Menagerie at 1178 Indiana Avenue behind Beer Barrel in the St. Marys Business Complex in St. Marys, Ohio, Readmore Hallmark Stores out at Eastgate Plaza and on Elm Street in Lima, Ohio, and in the Shop section of my website ohioirishlutheranpress.com .
