This Week Letter – December 16, 2018

From the Pastor’s Desk   ”What should we do?”      With this question on their lips,  crowds of people gathered around  John the Baptist, searching for the Messiah.  It is amazing that John the Baptist was able to achieve what so many preachers and missionaries could not.    How did John the Baptist gain the attention.. read more →

From the Pastor’s Desk… What gives us the courage to “prepare the way of the Lord” as John the Baptist did? How can we continue to work, watch, and wait for the reign of God in the world where progress seems impossible? We are energized by the confident hope that Christ will ultimately triumph over.. read more →

From the Pastor’s Desk ”Are you a King?”             For Pilate, this question was a matter of life and death.  History is aware of many such questions and justifies those that were answered untruthfully in order to save one’s own life or the lives of others.  There was no such option for Christ.  So He.. read more →

From the Pastor’s Desk Today’s Gospel gives evidence that of prime importance for Christ  is what is hidden in a person’s heart.  As an example today, we are given the poor widow whose temple offering was viewed by others to be not much, but according to Christ outweighed the other contributions because she gave all.. read more →

From the Pastor’s Desk We do not know how long Bartimaeus, the blind beggar, sat by the wayside asking for alms.  In a certain sense, he had sat there all his life waiting for that one Passerby, for only his meeting with Jesus changed his fate.  Only He who restored his eyesight and showered him.. read more →

From The Pastor ‘s Desk Amazing impudence was shown by the two sons of  Zebedee, those beloved disciples of Jesus, John and his brother James, when they presented their demand that, in the glory of the Master, they would sit one at His right and the other at His left hand.  Shocking was this request,.. read more →

This Week Letter – October 14, 2018

From The Pastor ‘s Desk We  marvel at the young man in today’s Gospel who did not ask Jesus to become famous or great in this life, but rather asked how to attain life eternal.  He might have become a model for today’s youth , helping them realize what is most important in this life. .. read more →
