December Chimes

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, Each Advent we prepare again to ponder the mysteries of God’s entering our human story in Christ’s birth. As the culture celebrates a time of festivity and gift-giving, so we too as Christians celebrate and mark the occasion with exchanges of gifts, as a way of remembering the greatest…

November Chimes

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you” (1 Thessalonians 5:18). Well dear friends, we have come to the month of Thanksgiving. At least in the church office, it feels as though September and October have flown by in the…

October Chimes

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I write this letter to you two days after the historic installation of our new bishop. The Rev.

We have fourteen youth and three adults from St. Paul’s attending the Gathering from June 27-July 1, and you might be wondering what this is all about. Lutheran youth from across the…

April Chimes

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, “Whew! Easter is over!” I’m sure some variant of those words was uttered in countless church offices, pastors’ and musicians’ homes, not to mention by tired-out volunteers: those who decorate the church, serve as assisting ministers, ushers, counters, or altar guild, those who set up for fellowship and welcome…

March Chimes

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, In the past week, I continue to find myself having conversations about community. As technology and our modes of interacting with one another change so rapidly, our understandings of what community is are also shifting. Is physical presence necessary for community? How does community change when it is mostly…
