I AM the Bread of Life

Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life.  Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty."

Dear Friends,

This Wednesday, we continue our Lenten Midweek series focusing upon Jesus' I AM sayings.  This week:  "I AM the Bread of Life."  Come and join us to be nourished in body, mind and spirit.  Feel free to come early where you will be fed by a hot delicious in meal in St. Andrew's Hall (beginning at 6:30).  At 7:30, we will gather upstairs for a simple, prayerful celebration around Word and Sacrament as Christ feeds us with His amazing gift of grace (Service with Prayers for Healing will resume on April 2).  Come join us to be renewed in faith.

Also, I want to remind you that there will be a congregational meeting following 11 AM Worship this Sunday (March 30) to present and discuss our long range plan for mission.  We hope that many of you will be able to join us as we gain greater clarity as to where the Lord is leading us to better serve the community.

"Return to the Lord, your God, for he is gracious and merciful, sow to anger and abounding in steadfast love."  

Peace,

Pastor Mueller

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 …

Christmas Cantata this weekend

A word of thanks to everyone who worked behind the scenes on this year's Advent Family Night.  What a wonderful evening for God's children of all ages.  A special thank you to our Director of Christian Education, Mrs. Janice Stickley, and members of our Christian Education for coordinating this event.
We hope to see many of you here, along with family and friends, at 5 PM this Saturday night for our Christmas Cantata. 

Join us for a joy filled hour together featuring special music from the choirs of St. Andrew's and Augustus Lutheran Church in Trappe, the Christmas story retold, and beloved Christmas carols sung together.  This is a great way to get into the spirit of the season and an opportunity for those of you who will be traveling or have other commitments on Christmas Eve this year to celebrate with your faith community.  Bring family members, friends, neighbors, or co-workers for this special night together.
Also, mark your calendars for our Christmas pageant on Sunda…

Change of Plans

Dear Friends,

Perhaps you are facing a season of change in your life.  Ecclesiastes 3:11 says that God has made everything "suitable for it's time."  That is to say that God has designed our lives into seasons, but there is a time limit on each one.  Some seasons are wide open doors for our passions and calling and some seasons are closed doors when God calls us to grow professionally, spiritually, or emotionally.  Some seasons are open doors where the changes are obvious: changes in employment, residence, or family life,   Some seasons are closed  doors where change is very subtle as we are challenged to look beneath the surface as we see changes in relationships, perspectives, attitudes, spiritual practices, and better self care.

If you are in an open door season of your life, may God give you the strength, flexibility, and patience to navigate the challenging changes ahead.  If you feel like you are in a closed door season, may you have wisdom and discernment to kno…
