Cross in Bloom Tells a Story

Through the six weeks of Lent a simple wooden cross stands in the chancel at Grace as has been the custom for over thirty years. Its outstretched arms, nails and crown draw our attention.  In doing so it silently bears witness to the cost of our sin which was paid in full by our Saviour’s sacrifice at Calvary. On Good Friday, when we recall the darkness that covered the earth as Jesus was crucified, the cross is draped in black. It reminds us of His death. But come Easter morning the cross blooms in witness to the resurrection of Jesus. Its former message of suffering and death is transformed to one of forgiveness and life. Covered with white flowers and fresh greens it shouts out the good news, “Christ has risen!”

Our Faith

We Believe

We believe that there is only one true God, Who exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God the Father is the creator of everything that exists. The Son is Jesus the Savior. The Holy Spirit inspired the entire Bible. It is the errorless Word of God that brings God's message of love and hope for all people. We accept that Scripture is accurately and faithfully interpreted in the documents contained in the Book of Concord.

“The New Normal”

“If only I could get a good night’s sleep!” “If only I could get over this cold.” When was the last time you heard someone start a sentence with, “If only…?”

Some “if only’s” are heavier than others. “If only she hadn’t developed cancer,” “If only he had lived long enough to know his grandchildren.”

Listening to the “if onlys” in people’s lives around me, I am reminded of my own longing for a better world, a world where unanswered questions and unwiped tears are no more! When I am honest with myself, sometimes my own “if onlys” are spoken more in frustration and anger about the hardships of life that I have no control over than they are cries for a new reality.

Did mom or dad ever tell you not to point a finger because when you do there’s always three fingers pointing back at you?  It’s a natural thing for humans to do.  “It wasn’t me who tracked mud over the newly washed floor.  It wasn’t my fault the milk was spilled.  She pushed me.”  We’re very quick to point fingers and lay blame.  Listen to the arm-chair quarterbacks assess the daily news – the tragedies and horrors that pass by in mere seconds on the “Live Update at Six.”  And don’t even start to talk about the Oilers record.
