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.

Change of Plans

Dear Friends,

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…

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…
