From Pastor Paul
Now there was a Pharisee named Nicodemus, a leader of the Jews. 2He
came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a
teacher who has come from God; for no one can do these signs that you do
apart from the presence of God.” John 3:1-2
Chances are you’ve heard of the game “Telephone.” In case you are unfamiliar, it
works like this: You have a group of people either standing in a circle or
sitting in a straight line. The
person on one end whispers a phrase into the next person’s ear and it gets
passed down the line. The phrase can only be said once so the person must listen
carefully. One shot is all each person has. Normally the end result is the
person at the other end doesn’t end up with the phrase that the first person
shared. Somewhere along the way words get jumbled, assumptions are made and we
end up with an inaccurate story. It’s no one’s fault really, but rather the work
of the whole group. Sometimes a person (or more) in the group who thinks it is
funny to mix up the phrase on purpose. The truth is, while it may be funny in
the moment, it isn’t helpful in the long run. It can be difficult to sometimes
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 and you are
invited to the banquet table where all are welcome as a guest of honor.
I’ve experienced this kind of communication in the past, in various places, but
maybe I have been a bit naïve as I have also found it to be quite common in the
church. In our brokenness, when we
have an issue, rather than addressing the person responsible, we engage in this
game of telephone in hopes that our request is met.
Why is that? Are we so
afraid of approaching someone directly that we look for any way to get out of
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.

this community and in the world.
