Knit Together as One

I know that I am not alone in this congregation when I say that I love to knit. During the winter months especially, I love nothing more than curling up with a cup of tea and working on a scarf or a blanket or a hat. Now, I’m not a particularly skilled knitter—everything I make is pretty simple—but it’s a meditative practice for me, and I love bringing together yarn of different colors and textures to make something warm for a friend or family member.

A Different Kind of Power

One of the ways we nerdy, clergy types describe the Lutheran church is to say we are a second article church. That is code language for saying the primary emphasis of our theology and preaching is on Jesus.

Jesus is the focus of second article of the Apostle’s Creed. So when we nerdy clergy types say we are a second article church, that’s what it means. We talk about Jesus more than anything else.

This is Most Certainly True

I grew up in a time of the church where we had to memorize the small catechism as well as Luther’s explanations. It would be interesting to see a show of hands of who else had to do the same thing. It was hard to do as a 7th, 8th and 9th grader, all that memory work.

A Good Pair of Running Shoes

May grace and peace be yours in abundance in the knowledge of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen

When I ran cross country in Jr. High and high school, one thing I learned was the importance of a good pair of running shoes. A good pair of running shoes are not too heavy, they support your arch, they don’t grip your feet too tight, or give you blisters. They breathe, allowing air to pass through the mesh so your feet don’t suffocate.
