Can we continue to live as Easter people?

Easter people live with the perspective of the resurrection. God has won the victory over death. The worst that can happen to us has been overcome by God taking Jesus from the tomb. That is our perspective. This vision challenges us to live boldly and daringly. “You have been born anew, not of perishable but of imperishable seed, through the living and enduring word of God” (1 Peter 1:23). In other words, you have a new perspective. Live from this perspective. Dare to “love one another deeply...

Live the "Amen"

Be careful of simple words said often. “Amen”, makes demands, like an unrelenting schoolmaster: Fierce attention to all that is said; No apathy, no preoccupation, no prejudice permitted. “Amen”:  We are present. We are open. We hearken.

Upbeat music for Lent?

When it comes to Lenten music it seems like the appropriate songs should be somber and quiet but the following one from Casting Crowns touches my soul during this time of year. It evokes the change in perspective that should come with the start of Lent. Ash Wednesday’s “remember that you are dust” message speaks to the brevity and impermanence of life, and the weight one's relationship with God carries in comparison. “Who Am I” balances those concepts so perfectly:

What is Lent?

Has anyone ever asked you this question? Can you answer it? There are many seasons, services, scriptures, stories in our church that are often misunderstood, or maybe just not understood enough to be able to answer questions posed by another. We often assume that our message is clear but we should not take for granted that everyone possesses the same amount of knowledge regarding the Lutheran faith or even the Bible.

Our Calling...

Passing on our faith to the next generation is one of our highest callings. This is made very clear in several psalms, including Psalms 102 and 145, and especially Psalm 78. Unfortunately, we Christians haven’t always done this well. Growing up at St. Mark’s, I realize that many children that grew up in our own church put their relationship with God on the back burner when they entered adulthood. What we’ve experienced in our congregation is common throughout the Church today though some...
