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 a leader recite a line, having the congregation echo it, and then leaving a moment of silence for reflection.

+++++
Our Father, above us and all around us,
May your unspeakable Name be revered.

Here to earth, may your kingdom come.
Here on earth, may your will be done as it is in heaven.

Give us today our bread for today.
And forgive us our wrongs as we forgive those who wrong us.

Lead us away from the time of trial.
But liberate us from the evil.

For the kingdom is yours and yours alone,
And the power is yours and yours alone,
And the glory is yours and yours alone.

Amen.

I also hope to see many of you at our midweek worship service tomorrow (Wed.) night at 7 PM.

Grace and peace,

Pastor Mueller

Up until serene retirement, Lehmann, 'Aristocrat of Barossa', who turned into the main Australian winemaker to be made a Member of the Order of Australia, yet at the same time alludes to himself as 'only an old Barossa mongrel', carried on with a recognized and persuasive life. Of the fifth era Barossa child destined to a Lutheran minister, wine essayist, James Halliday said: 'It's not frequently a man turns into a living legend.' http://www.mordocrosswords.com/2016/11/biblical-name-thought-to-mean-father-of.html

As said beforehand, Finance is a tremendous subject with different classes. Without a doubt, even before beginning your blog making, pick what gathering you need to frame. In like manner, basically dynamically significant is to expect quick to remember. This is tremendous in view of the contiguous between relationship of these requests that can unmistakably divert you to a different class all together, and without your insight. For eg. You may begin making 'On the best way to deal with deal with your Personal Finance'. There comes one crucial point in it about reimbursing your extraordinary need responsibilities.

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…
