December Chimes

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Advent blessings to you all! As a child, Advent was always my favorite church season. It was a time of awe and wonder, and with each candle lit, I knew the excitement of Christmas was one week closer. Of course, in Advent, we are not really meant to prepare…

November Chimes

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, If I had to pick a favorite season, it would be Fall. There are so many things I love about the Fall, but it is probably my favorite because of Thanksgiving, which is my absolute favorite holiday. Some might be surprised that I don’t have a religious holiday topping…

October Chimes

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, This October we join Lutherans around the world in commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. It was October 31, 1517 that Martin Luther, a monk and pastor, posted his “95 Theses” in Wittenberg, Germany. He intended to start a debate, hoping to provoke change in the church to…

September Chimes

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, “We, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another.” We recently read these words from Paul’s letter to the Romans in church. It is one of my favorite metaphors for the church: the body of Christ. We all serve our own…

August Chimes

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Last year in September and October, around eighty members of St. Paul’s participated in a new venture together: small group dinners in members’ homes! These were universally enjoyed, both as an opportunity for fellowship and a chance to discuss planning for the church in a relaxed setting. This year,…

July Chimes

Dear brothers and sisters, This past week, St. Paul’s hosted our annual Vacation Bible School. For five days, our church is transformed—this year into a cityscape. Our theme this year was “Hero Central.” We learned together about the heroes in the Bible, and explored how we can be heroes for God. It is always a…

June Chimes

Dear brothers and sisters, We have made it to the home stretch of another school year! It is amusing to me, that in the rhythms of our lives, June has always felt much more like the end of the year to me than December. And September is my New Year’s, when things change and new…

May Chimes

Dear brothers and sisters, “God will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouting.”—Job 8:21 As we continue through the Easter season together, I wanted to share a tradition from church history that has been revived in many churches recently: Holy Humor Sunday. It is usually celebrated on the Second Sunday of…

April Chimes

Dear friends in Christ, One of my favorite hymns for the Lenten season is “My Song is Love Unknown” by Samuel Crossman. It is an old hymn, from 1664, which recounts the events of Jesus’ life and passion from a first-person perspective. It invites us into the narrative and drama to experience it for ourselves….
