“Peace I leave with you… Do not let your hearts be troubled, and neither let them be afraid… As the Father loves me, so I have loved you. Abide in my love… I have said these things to you so that my joy may be in you and your joy may be complete.” (John 14)
These are Jesus’ words to His disciples before his journey to the cross. May these words guide you in the days to come. They will be my prayer as I enter this time of discernment.
Confirmation day was Sunday, October 2, at the 10:15 am worship service. We are excited for the 33 students who affirmed the faith journey that began in Baptism. This is one of treasures of the church, one of the most important things that we do as a church. Budgetary needs for 2017 are prepared by our church’s commissions and committees in the month of October. It is also Lutefisk Dinner month. It has been fun to work with the lefse makers each week. I have gotten the hang of rolling and flipping. Last year my daughter in law learned how to bake lefse. I told her that we have a date this Fall to do this together.
Thank you for your faithfulness. May Jesus be your constant light. May you stay faithful? Keep the spiritual disciplines of faith alive. Worship regularly. May you continue to give of yourselves and your time and treasures. Give to the mission of Christ. May you continue to lift up the light of Christ so that we have a more enlightened world. Keep Christ at the center. Safeguard and protect the children. Tend to the needs of the world. Nurture the faith of all who have been baptized. Celebrate as couples exchange vows in marriage at the altar. Pray for those who have lost loved ones. Be the light.
