Wrestling with Angels

Dear Friends,

There are moments in reading scripture and in our daily lives where the questions can often tell us more than the answers.  With this in mind, I pose the following questions regarding Genesis 32:22-31 which we will be looking at in Bible Study on Thursday as well as in worship this weekend.

1. Why do you think God let Jacob wrestle?
2. Why do you think God wrenched Jacob's hip?
3. Have you had a struggle in your life that really helped you to grow?  Do you still have a limp?
4. What do you think is the significance of Jacob's name change?

In the midst of things in our lives that we cannot begin to understand, may God give us the strength to keep wrestling, the willingness to trust, and the capacity to love and forgive others.  See you in church!

Peace,

Pastor Mueller

Opportunities for Growth

Dear Friends,
    There are several learning opportunities coming up in week ahead that I wanted keep on your radar. - "Aslan on the Move" :  This Sunday (downstairs in Jerusalem Room)  at 9:30 AM we gather together for a presentation / discussion based on Christian themes found in the C.S. Lewis classic, "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe."   This gathering will continue through November 24.  Anyone from high school students to senior citizens are welcome to attend.  Join us and be enriched in faith.  - "Lunch Bunch Bible Study" - We gather each Thursday at noontime in St. Andrew's Hall to look a little deeper at the assigned bible texts that will be proclaimed the upcoming Sunday.  We provide coffee and printed out texts.  You are free to bring Bibles and a bagged lunch if you wish.  People who rarely take part in Bible Study have become a part of this group and have found it very helpful in their walk of faith.

An Easter Prayer

Holy and Living God, You continue to confound  our expectations and surprise us with your redeeming power in our lives.  Come among us, risen Lord.  Reveal yourself to us that we may know with confidence that nothing in all creation, not even death, can separate us from your love.  In Jesus' name.  Amen. A word of thanks to all of you who offered your hearts and hands and voices to a deeply moving Holy Week and a joy filled celebration of the Resurrection.  It was exciting to see an increase in attendance at special services throughout Lent and Holy Week this year, especially among those who are newer to our faith community. Many hearts were touched and lives were lifted up through the celebrations of this past week. We are truly blessed. Continue to pray for those who were unable to be with us on Sunday, the sick, the struggling, the hospitalized, the homebound, and the dying.  Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world, especially those who …

Lord's Prayer

Dear Friends,

This Sunday in worship our Gospel lesson is Luke 11:1-13.  In my message, I will be focusing chiefly on this rather strange parable of Jesus.  However, this is also the text where on e of Jesus' disciples says, "Lord, teach us to pray" and Jesus introduces what would become known as the Lord's Prayer.  While this will not be a primary focus on Sunday, I thought I would share with you below a reflection by Christian writer Brian McClaren bringing fresh meaning to a prayer that has become so familiar that, unfortunately, it can become rote and uttered with little meaning or reflection.  I hope that you will find this helpful for your own time in prayer.  And who knows?  It may even show up sometime in a worship service.
A Spoken Version of the Lord’s Prayer
This rendering of the Lord’s prayer uses unfamiliar words and phrasing to help us actually hear its message rather than lapsing into an auto-pilot recitation. You can use it in public worship by having …
