This is the season of Pentecost!

From the Pastor

One of our core values at Grace Lutheran is creativity. This is not a creativity that is self-generated. We aren’t particularly artsy. We don’t walk with a special flair. But we do have Christ, who makes all things new. It is the old, old story of Jesus and his love, but it comes to us fresh and new every time we gather as the people of God. We don’t use special gimmicks or the latest techno-productions to entice people. We just have Christ who meets us every time we gather in a new way because our lives have changed that much. We don’t have yesterday’s answers to our present issues and concerns. We just have Christ who meets us where we are at.

So often we make the mistake of inviting people in to make them what we think they should be, as if we have special insight into the Kingdom of God. We are at our best when we die to these preconceived notions and let Christ rule in our hearts. Otherwise, we are freed to get trapped in yet another box of human design. We really do have good intentions, but hell is still paved with those desires. Christ is at his best when we are at our least.

Two singers from Angola joined us for worship, the M’Bazi Singers. Through song and testimony, Christ became closer to each one of us. We even had Lutherans standing and clapping, although there was no sustained rhythm to our beat. However, it didn’t matter. Christ made a visit, too, promising to make all things new and renewed. We even sang it in the offertory: “Create in me a clean heart, O God. And renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence. And take not your Holy Spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation and uphold me with thy free spirit.”

It is amazing what happens when God’s creativity is turned loose in our lives. I’d like to think I picked up a bit of that creative touch, M’Bazi style!!

Storing Treasures

A smile can be a precious crown,

To show the world a joy renown.

The life you live, being faithful still,

And honoring your Master's will.

For every time you do your part

To share the virtues of His heart,

His rewards will never fray...

Storing treasures along your way!

A helping hand can offer hope,

To one who's trying hard to cope.

A helping heart can offer more,

To life a spirit and help it soar.

For when you do the smallest part

To share the love of God's own heart,

He is with you all the way...

Storing treasures as you pray!

A beaming light shines on your face,

Can brighten hearts with a warm embrace.

Reflecting love as when angels dance,

A ray of hope in a passing glance.

For when you're offered any part

To share the glory of His heart,

Accept it fully, you'll never stray...

He's storing treasures for you this day!
