It is with heavy hearts that the Concordia Family mourns the loss of one of our young alumni, Cameron James Smith ’15, who passed away earlier this week. Cameron was a young man with a huge heart and had a talent and passion for music, football, and video games. In his time at Concordia, Cameron was extremely involved in the life of the school participating in choir, symphonic band, jazz band, handbells, and varsity football. Since high school, Cameron had graduated from Sam Houston State University and was preparing to start work with Apple. To the many family, friends, classmates, and teammates, we are sorry for your loss. Please keep the Smith family in your prayers as well as our alumni, faculty, staff, and administration during this challenging time.
A funeral ceremony for Cameron will be held at Concordia Lutheran High School on Saturday, Feb. 27th at 2 pm in the Cafetorium with a small reception to follow in the Commons.

This Ash Wednesday may not feel like a "normal" Ash Wednesday as we are unable to gather together. Many Concordia families are dealing without power and water, or burst pipes. We are praying for the community in this difficult time.
As challenging as this week has been, we are reminded that we are all dust, and to dust, we shall return. We can have confidence in Christ Jesus who died on the cross for our sins, so that when our bodies perish to dust on this temporal earth, the Kingdom of Heaven awaits.
Due to the fact there are uncertainties with the weather, electricity, and water, Concordia will not have school in person or online through Friday, Feb. 19th. We look forward to returning to our normal schedule on Monday, Feb. 22nd. Please stay safe as we deal with these unprecedented events.
[02/16/21] Due to the fact there are uncertainties with the weather, electricity, and water for at least the next two days, Concordia will not have school in person or online through Friday, Feb. 19th. We look forward to returning to our normal schedule on Monday, Feb. 22nd. Please stay safe as we deal with these unprecedented events.
We know that God is in control during this winter storm. We are trusting in His protection for our students, staff, our campus. We pray that power and water are restored for many of our families.
We will miss the students tomorrow and hope they stay safe at home. It was a slow day at school today; it felt like a kingdom of isolation.

Speaking Truth in the Midst of Suffering
1 Peter 3:15-17 ESV
15 but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, 16 having a good conscience, so that, when you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ may be put to shame. 17 For it is better to suffer for doing good, if that should be God's will, than for doing evil.
What does it mean to honor the Lord in your hearts? What does that look like practically?
* One way we should respond to suffering is by setting our hearts on Christ as Lord.
Why? Because often Christ is not ruling over our lives. When we choose our way, this is often the path of least resistance.
-“Living Sacrifices holy and pleasing to God” (Romans 12:1)
- The example of Jesus as he heads to the cross, “Father if willing take this cup,...but your will be done.” (Luke 22:42)
Are we setting apart Christ as Lord in our life? It’s the only way to go through unjust suffering.
* In suffering, we must be ready to defend our Hope in God.
It is in the midst of suffering that our life shines the most. In the fire we have times to shine the hope we have in Christ. People wonder why we are responding the way we are. There are opportunities to share our HOPE with others.
-Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego’s apologia or defense - “The God we serve is able to save us.” (Daniel 3:16-18)
But they also responded in the right way, with the proper respect due to the king. How do we do this? We must speak with gentleness, with a tame tongue and tame emotions. We have to remember that when we fail, Jesus doesn’t lash out at us. Think of Judas in the garden and Peter when he denied Jesus. We must speak with respect. Respect others as people made in the image of God. In response to suffering, we must be prepared to give an apologia for our faith, but in doing so we must do it with gentleness and respect.
* In suffering we must maintain a clear conscience.
God gives us a conscience to stay holy and our conscience will either accuse us or affirm us. We must be mindful of this or we will harden our conscience and it will not work as God has designed it. While we go through suffering, we must always ask if we are doing it in such a way that we do not hurt our conscience.
* In suffering we must be willing to endure it as part of the will of God.
If we suffer, it is better that it is God’s will to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. God is in control and we should be willing to endure the suffering he allows.
-Joseph - “What you intended for evil, God meant for good.” (Genesis 50:20)
-Job - “The Lord gives and the Lord takes away.” (Job 1:21)
God is in control and his will is always best for us. He works everything for the good in our lives, even the evil. We must view trial and suffering in a righteous way so that in the midst of our suffering we can speak the truth. In other words, be prepared to give a defense of the hope that we have in Christ.
Concordia's Girls Soccer team celebrated four senior athletes last week during their Senior Night. Caroline C., Lauryn K., Hannah K., and Abby K. were all honored at halftime of the team's 3-1 win over St. John XXIII.

Today we honor the legacy, work, and love of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who shared this educational approach:
“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”
Camp Lone Star
This week we welcomed Concordia Lutheran High School, Tomball to the Pines Campus! It was a great day of team-building, fellowship, and camp fun!
Concordia's Freshmen Class (c/o 2024) enjoyed a retreat today at beautiful Camp Lone Star - Pines Campus in Tomball. Students enjoyed small group time led by upperclassmen leaders, games led by Camp Lone Star staff, lunch, kickball, archery dodgeball, and many other activities.
Also, Concordia Alumni parent and professional speaker, Jimmy Cabrera, as well as Freshmen Counselor, Scot Walter led the Freshmen Success seminars throughout the day.
It was a blessing to capture the youthful joy of the students being able to gather for this special time of bonding and relationship building.

Concordia Lutheran High School's staff is starting the new year off right with CPR/AED/First Aid training.
