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 it?   ... < more >

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
