In Synod News

Bishop Constanze Hagmaier delivers her 2023 Easter message to the South Dakota Synod’s congregations, rostered ministers, and members:

In the waters of baptism, you also have been called by name and made God’s own. While the world is quick to hashtag you all sorts of things, God only hashtags you with #belovedchildofgod. He calls you by your name. And in that name, in that beloved-ness is your identity. Death, sin and brokenness, dear South Dakota Synod, hold no power over you, because he has risen! He has risen indeed. Now go and run with Mary, because you have seen the Lord.
