  1.                               This week on The Lutheran Hour we continue on in a new series from the book of Genesis.  This week’s Speaker,  Rev. Dr. Michael  Zeigler looks at Genesis 39 and says, “Words create a picture                      of life, life as it really is, life as it could be. And so, if   you want God to be your Treasure, you need a vision                                 of life with God. I want a vision of life with God  because I want God to be my treasure, even as I know that, in Jesus, I am His.   Next week the message is titled, “Unforgettable.”
