Did you know Luther said?
“The Law is for the proud and the Gospel is for the brokenhearted.”

From Pastor Paul

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

 I’ve been drawn to this Psalm because of the message it gives us about how pleasant things are when we work together, live together, and play together in harmony.  You don’t have to look far to find plenty of examples of how we are different from each other.  We use all sorts of labels to divide us and I believe that is counter-cultural to what God intends for God’s children.  We are not to be divided but rather we are to find ways to live together, even if we don’t always agree.  We are reminded that God is present in all things, but God’s greatest blessings come to us when we are united, when we share with one another and care for one another.

It can be difficult sometimes to agree with those around us.  You might even call it impossible.  Remember, however, that all things are truly possible when God is involved.  Give your problems, your worries, your joys, your sorrows, your celebrations--give them all to God--and give thanks that you have been claimed as a child of God.  You are invited to the banquet table where all are welcome as a guest of honor.

How very good and pleasant it is when people live together in unity.  May these be our guiding words for our lives, and may we strive to find the good in each other even if we don’t always agree.

How might you work to be in unity with others, especially those you might not agree with?  How might you work to be in unity with those who have upset you?  It often is easiest to simply dismiss them and walk away.  It takes much more effort to find a solution or a common ground.  After all, aren’t we called to be in community together?  Even when it’s difficult?

Welcome to our website from Pastor Paul

Sisters and Brothers in Christ,   Welcome to All Saints Lutheran Church website.  It is my hope that as you look through our website you will get a feeling for the community life of All Saints.  We are striving to be a missional community that 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 here. 

Worship 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 Saints! 
   
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.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask myself by either calling the church office at 970-835-3667 or email me at PastorPaul@AllSaintsLutheranCO.org.  We would love to talk with you more about the ministry of All Saints in this community and in the world.

Servants together,
Pastor Paul Rosin
