It is with a heavy heart that Shepherd of the Lakes Lutheran Church in Sayner announces that all church services and all other activities at Shepherd of the Lakes have been cancelled until further notice due to a Vilas county mandate issued from the CDC. Please if you know of someone who does not have email or access to Facebook or our website or any other means of learning about our closure, call them immediately and let them know. Pass the word as you are able. Thank you.

Take away the wicked [from] before the king, And his throne shall be established in righteousness.
6
Put not thyself forward in the presence of the king, And stand not in the place of great men:

For better is it that it be said unto thee, Come up hither, Than that thou shouldest be put lower in the presence of the prince, Whom thine eyes have seen.
8
Go not forth hastily to strive, Lest [thou know not] what to do in the end thereof, When thy neighbor hath put thee to shame.

Lest he that heareth it revile thee, And thine infamy turn not away.

Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, Lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it.

A man that beareth false witness against his neighbor Is a maul, and a sword, and a sharp arrow.
19
Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble Is [like] a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.
20
[As] one that taketh off a garment in cold weather, [and as] vinegar upon soda, So is he that singeth songs to a heavy heart.

If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; And if he be thirsty, give him water to drink:
22
For thou wilt heap coals of fire upon his head, And Jehovah will reward thee.
23
The north wind bringeth forth rain: So doth a backbiting tongue an angry countenance.
24
It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, Than with a contentious woman in a wide house.

He whose spirit is without restraint Is [like] a city that is broken down and without walls.
