Awareness of Light

1/13/2019
More
The light increases around us each day, but in order to see it, we have to be intentional each day. Jesus is the Light of the world, and during Epiphany we can learn to notice the Light each day so that we notice the increasing Light in us. Music provided by and licensed via www.pond5.com

Look Up!

1/6/2019
More
Look up! Look to the stars and, follow the Light. A bright star in the nighttime sky draws three wise men to take the journey of a lifetime to encounter the Messiah, a child, Jesus. The rest, as they say, is history, but we are a part of it, too! Music provided by and licensed via www.pond5.com

I Love to Sing the Songs of Christmas!

12/24/2018
More
I love to sing the songs of Christmas, especially at our Christmas Eve worship services. They tell a story that is powerful and important. They remind us that God is with us, Emmanuel, in our joys and in our pains. The Christ child of Christmas shines a light into our world and into our lives.

You Have a Praise Worthy Story to Tell!

12/23/2018
More
You have a praise worthy story to tell! Mary and Elizabeth share their praise for God and their own humble celebration as they meet during their pregnancies, one caring John who will prepare the way for the Messiah and the other, the Christ child. Perhaps it’s time we started offering our praise for God so that others might see our faithfulness and be drawn into what God is already doing? Music licensed and provided via www.pond5.com

How is your joy this season?

12/16/2018
More
The third Sunday in Advent is known as JOY Sunday. The readings for the day reflect that joy, even the reading for today’s sermon podcast, though it’s hard to see it at first. How is it with your joy, your heart, your holiday season? Learn about waiting with joy (and hope) in today’s message. Music provided by and licensed via www.pond5.com

God Goes with You in the Wilderness Places

12/10/2018
More
Prepare the way! That’s John’s message for us this week, but what does that mean for us today? Where are the wilderness places for us to proclaim that Christ is coming? Music provided by and licensed via www.pond5.com

What to do as you wait... A message for the first Sunday in Advent

12/2/2018
More
The readings for Advent can seem a little out of sync with the feelings we have about the holidays, but they give us some clues about how to live in the midst of waiting and hoping. Pastor Anderson, Assistant to the Bishop for Northeast Iowa Synod, ELCA, shares some thoughts in our language at Lord of Life around the three great cares entrusted to us.

Keep Calm. Carry On.

11/18/2018
More
Jesus’ prophecy about the destruction of the temple may seem relevant to today’s world. Uncertainty, fires, floods, storms and wars, but in the midst of it all we are reminded that Christ is with us and that perhaps what we need to do is keep calm and carry on.

Naming the Brokenness

11/11/2018
More
What is broken in our world? Are we broken? In this week’s message Pastor Paul reminds us that Jesus names the brokenness and that we are called to name it and respond by providing hope. Music provided by and licensed via www.pond5.com

Death has a Smell

11/4/2018
More
Jesus weeps. The resurrection is real. But death has a smell and it stinks and we need to know what to do when death enters our circle. Music provided by and licensed via www.pond5.com

What is truth? What is freedom?

10/29/2018
More
It’s Reformation Sunday and we commemorate the work of Martin Luther to reform the church. On this day we also celebrate with our confirmands who affirm their faith in Jesus Christ. John’s Gospel reading shares the story of Jesus’ interaction with other Jewish leaders, a debate about what is truth and what is freedom are the result. Martin Luther shared plenty on this topic and today’s sermon is a walk through what truth and freedom mean today. Music licensed via and provided by...

What Must I Do?

10/21/2018
More
A well-to-do young man comes to Jesus and asks, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?” We tend to think of ourselves as “get it done” people in the United States, so perhaps we can understand the young man’s question of Jesus. What’s strange is that there isn’t anything we can DO to gain God’s love or eternal life. [Music provided by and licensed via www.pond5.com]

How Will You Measure Your Life? By Who and How You Serve.

10/14/2018
More
Why are we called to serve others? Is Jesus really trying to teach us something about ourselves? In the reading for the day and in the parable of the sheep and goats, we learn something about what it means to have power and to use power to choose to serve.

How Will You Measure Your Life? By How and What You Give. Part II in the Series

10/7/2018
More
In part two of our series, Pastor Paul looks at the way that we measure our lives, often, by the stuff we have, and suggests an alternative measure, how and what we give. Music provided by and licensed via www.pond5.com. This series adapted, with gratitude, from a series shared by Pastor Adam Hamilton.

9/30/2018
More
How will you measure your life? In part one of this three week series, Pastor Paul looks at the Parable of the Sower to learn something about how we measure our life and how God will measure our life. We are called to LOVE (even if we don’t like) and we are called to sow seeds with our life. How will you measure your life? By who and how you love. Music provided by and licensed via www.pond5.com We are grateful to sharechurch.com and Pastor Adam Hamilton who holds the creative common...

Jesus is a radical Savior who does radical stuff!

9/24/2018
More
Jesus is a radical Savior who does radical stuff. Too often we lose the context of Jesus’ choices and examples. In today’s reading, Jesus takes a child in his arms as an example of what greatness looks like, but why did he do so? Follow along with this message by Pastor Paul to learn more. Music provided by and licensed via www.pond5.com

"Who do you say that I am?"

9/17/2018
More
What kinds of claims do we make about Jesus? Are we afraid to make a claim at all? Is our faith so private and personal that we don’t want to share it? Or are we afraid we have too many questions to be the person to share who Jesus is? All this and more in this week’s sermon from Pastor Paul. Music provided by and licensed via www.pond5.com

God changes God's mind about you (and that's a good thing!)

9/9/2018
More
In our gospel reading for this day, Jesus encounters a woman, an outsider, and is moved by her passionate plea to change his mind about her request to save her daughter. In this message, we hear about that story and about the ways in which we might, too, need to change or be changed. All while giving thanks that God does change God’s mind about what we deserve as sinners. Music provided by and licensed via www.pond5.com.

Speaking from the Heart

9/2/2018
More
What comes from your heart matters. Jesus tells the crowd to listen, that being defiled is a matter of what comes out of us, from our heart. Embracing the correct intent, then, is critical. Our intent comes from knowing that God is the source of life and that we live in response to what God has first done for us. Music provided by and licensed via www.pond5.com

How far will you go to follow?

8/26/2018
More
How far are you willing to go to follow Jesus? When Jesus asks the Twelve, “Do you also wish to go away?” he asks the same question of us. It is difficult to live out our faith sometimes, but we are strengthened by worship and the sacraments, and through our efforts to nurture the gift of faith.
