Come, And Be Well!

Grace and peace to you from God our Creator, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, who abides in which of us. Amen

If something is repeated it must be important. In our Gospel text this morning, the word “welcome” appears six times. In just three verses, Jesus says the word “welcome” six times. If something is repeated, it must be important.

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

I pray that you’ve had a blessed week.

As I was reading through some articles online this week, one, in particular, caught my attention that I just had to read. The headline read, “Should We Love Conditionally or Unconditionally?” It was actually a May 3, 2014 article from the New York Times that was an excerpt from a book entitled…

​Encounter God, Grow in Faith, Serve the World

Shared by Meghan Harmison

Matthew 10: 24-39

Every time we encounter God we change

When we change, we grow

As we grow we desire to serve.

We have to be uncomfortable in order to change

It requires vulnerability to encounter God. When we are in our most vulnerable states we encounter God and all He has to offer. When we are vulnerable…

Back in March, several of us from Salem attended a leadership seminar. It was a great learning experience and, as part of the learning process, those of us that attended now get to meet with our leadership coach several times through the year to help us learn and adopt new, more effective styles of leadership.…

We Are A Trinitarian Congregation!

Grace and peace to you from God our Creator, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, who abides in which of us. Amen

Today is the one day in the church calendar that we focus on a doctrine of the church. Today is Holy Trinity Sunday! Now if you try to look for the word trinity in scripture, or for an explanation of what the Trinity is in scripture you won't find it.…

This Sunday is Holy Trinity Sunday. It is the one day in the church calendar where we celebrate a man-made doctrine and not a scriptural act or teaching. The word “Trinity” appears nowhere in the scriptures. It is a term and a teaching that the church created after hundreds of years of discussion and…

We Don't Love Enough

Shared by BJ Fevold

I did a Google search for weird laws in Kansas - Did you know that in some places in Kansas it is illegal for restaurants to sell cherry pie a la mode on Sundays; that if two trains meet on the same track, neither one of them can proceed until one of them has passed (think about that one); that rabbits cannot be shot from motorboats (think about that…

This coming Sunday is the fiftieth day after Easter, which means Sunday is the Day of Pentecost. As we read in the Book of Acts, “When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled…

We're Still Here!

Grace and peace to you from God our Creator, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit, who abides in which of us. Amen

This past Thursday, May 29, was a very special day in the history of Christianity, but a day that is rarely celebrated in the church. Thursday was the Ascension of Our Lord. That is, Thursday was the 40th day after Easter and therefore it marks the day…

You know, as a Lutheran pastor, I am often asked about what Lutherans believe. In our congregation, we have many people who are not life-long Lutherans, and so they have heard differing thoughts and interpretations of scripture before, and now they want to know what they “should” believe. I understand…
