Did you know
“Everything that is done in this world is done by hope.”
From Pastor Paul
“I will tell of your name to my brothers and sisters,
in the midst of the congregation I will praise you: You who fear the LORD,
praise him! All you offspring of
Jacob, glorify him; stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel!
For he did not despise or abhor the affliction of the afflicted; he
did not hide his face from me, but heard when I cried to him” (Psalm
Sisters and Brothers in Christ:
This season of Lent has been like nothing I have experienced before.
From the onset of my Shingles diagnosis, I have felt the love and prayers
of so many people. I have also had
moments of feeling isolated and feeling nothing more than the affliction that
goes with Shingles. Yet in the
whirlwind of emotions, as I read this text as part of my devotions, I felt the
comfort of God who loves me, and has made Himself known to me as I cried out.
“For he did not despise or abhor the affliction of the afflicted; he did
not hide his face from me, but heard when I cried to him.”
Then added to my personal emotions;,
an unknown entity invaded our lives in the form of Covid-19 Coronavirus.
Many have often approached their journey in Lent as time in the
wilderness. But this now, is a time
in the wilderness that is unfamiliar to all of us.
The season of Lent calls us to reflect on God’s deep love and desire to
restore relationships with each of us. “For he did not despise or abhor the
affliction of the afflicted; he did not hide his face from me, but heard when I
cried to him.” Through Lent,
we journey with Jesus and his disciples as Jesus turns his eyes toward Jerusalem
and the cross. Holding on to that
promise, and given the circumstances that we now live, this letter needs to take
a different approach than any other letter I have written.
We now need to adapt ourselves with the news and how our community may or may
not be changing. When I first sat
down to write this letter, it had a particular focus but within the time span of
a day, we began to see how being church needed to change with our community.
As soon as I send this letter to be included in the newsletter for
printing, I cannot help but wonder how much the world will change overnight.
So how do we adapt or respond?
We respond In prayer with wisdom and with caution.
Welcome to our website from Pastor Paul
Sisters and Brothers in
to All Saints Lutheran Church website. It is my hope that as
look through our website you will get a feeling for the community life
of All Saints. We are striving to be a missional community
is centered in Christ, grounded in prayer and a place where ALL
of God’s people feel welcome.
No matter your religious background or where you
are in your spiritual journey, there is a place for you here.
Maybe you grew up in church and have been a regular ever since, maybe
you’ve been away from the church for longer than you can remember,
maybe the whole church thing is something new, with both humility and
confidence, we trust that it is Christ who invites you to meet him
begins at 10:00 a.m. every Sunday with communion on the first and third
Sunday of each month. Adult Bible study begins at 9:00 a.m.,
and Children’s Sunday school begins at 10:00 a.m. after the Children’s
sermon. We hope that you will be able to join us and
experience meaningful worship. We know that as a
church, we cannot be all things to all people; but, we do welcome all
people. Make no mistake; we are broken, sinful people who are
longing for the good news of God’s love spoken to us through Jesus
Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. We work together, we
play together and we pray together. Sometimes we get things
wrong and without intention, hurt each other. Through it all
we know that God’s love for us is greater than anything we can begin to
imagine. It’s this promise that we want to share with
you. The Holy Spirit is active in the members of All
Blessings on your journey and we hope you find All Saints to be a place
that reflects God’s boundless love for you as a child of God.
