The Lutheran Hour has now been on the air for 90 years. With its first broadcast on October 3, 1930, it is the longest-running Christian broadcast in the world. The Lutheran Hour has touched lives and nurtured God's children with an unchanging message of hope nd forgiveness through Jesus Christ. We give all praise and glory to God for this life-changing ministry.

The Lutheran Hour: “What’s on Your Playlist?”
(Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler) The Book of Ecclesiastes offers perspective on life’s alternating seasons of joy and sadness, gain and loss, war and peace.
“God Comes with a Community” (Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler) Dr. Michael Zeigler says, “God wasn’t and isn’t a hermit. From eternity, God is the God of community and conversation.” (Acts 2:38-39).
“A Place in the Choir”
(Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler) God’s world is like a big, beautiful choir in which everyone has a place and a part to sing.
