Happy International Women's Day!

To mark International Women's Day, the LWF is celebrating past and present women in leadership in churches around the world.

Born in Hungary in 1943, Eva Zabolai-Csekme went to the U.S. to study sociology. She had a particular passion for feminist theology – something quite new and challenging for the LWF and its global constituency.

In 1972 she was appointed as the first Secretary of the new LWF Women’s Desk and worked hard to set up contacts, establishing what would later become known for many years as the Office of Women in Church and Society (WICAS)

A key way she worked to empower women was through a series of leadership training events. The first was held in Ethiopia in 1973, followed by a dozen others, organized by churches in different parts of the world.

In the first issue of the Women’s Desk newsletter in 1974, Rev. Eva Zabolai-Csekme remarked: “One of the most obvious obstacles to finding satisfactory solutions is the lack of adequate leadership among women on all levels. Therefore we regard the development of adequate female leadership as the number one task of the LWF Women’s Desk.”

Sermon Bites with Pastor Don:
Jesus' model of acceptance, inclusion and love for the "other" helps us overcome and heal our biases.
It is about the deep, disruptive, abundant, extravagant compassion of God!


Thank you all who came to church today to donate new socks and underwear for adults and youth. They will be distributed through the Network of Community Ministries.
It's a blessing to have such a generous church community! 💗🙏😇


As International Women's Day is getting closer, join us in celebrating women in leadership in churches around the world.

To mark International Women's Day, the LWF is celebrating past and present women in leadership in churches around the world.

Sister Anna Ebert’s life spanned the 20th century, reflecting the dramatic changes and new opportunities for women in the church and in society.

Born in 1901, she worked as a nurse and was consecrated as a young deaconess in Philadelphia, going on to become the first female president of both the Lutheran Deaconess’ Conference in America and the World Federation of Diaconal Associations and Communities.

At the LWF’s founding Assembly in 1947, she was one of only four female delegates, alongside another 20 women “visitors” without voting rights.

Their presence, however small, set an important precedent. Two years later, they wrote to the Executive Committee, preparing for the next Assembly in Hannover, stating: “We wish to say with all possible emphasis that we are not interested in securing rights for ourselves. Something much more vital is at stake: the proper place, the God-intended place of women in the fellowship of the Christian church.” A first LWF women’s section was initiated at that Hannover Assembly in 1952.

Sister Anna died in 1997, the year of the Ninth LWF Assembly in Hong Kong, at which almost half of all delegates were women.

"Come to him, a living stone, though rejected by mortals yet chosen and precious in God’s sight, and like living stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For it stands in scripture: ‘See, I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious; and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.’ To you then who believe, he is precious; but for those who do not believe, ‘The stone that the builders rejected has become the very head of the corner'" (1 Peter 2:4-7).


Remember that laughter is not only ok, it’s good for you. And it is a wonderful gift from God… even during Lent. So find some time today to look UP and laugh and thank God for that gift. May laughter give you the lift you need.

“There is no way to peace along the way of safety. For peace must be dared. It is the great venture. It can never be made safe. Peace is the opposite of security … peace means to give oneself altogether to the law of God. … Battles are won, not with weapons, but with God. They are won where the way leads to the cross.”
--Dietrich Bonhoeffer


Have a great Tuesday y'all, keep moving forward with your lives. God is always with you!


In honor of #womanshistorymonth name your bold woman in the comments and add a photo of her if you so choose!

Who comes to mind when you think about bold women?

Bold is not always boisterous. Bold can be quiet and determined. Bold can be caring and creative.

Today, on Bold Women's Day, we celebrate the many ways of being bold and acting on our faith in Jesus Christ. Who is the bold woman in your life?

Name your bold woman in the comments; add a photo of her if you so choose.


We wish Happy Birthday to all of you who were born in March!



In the final installment of our #BlackHistoryMonth series, we heard from Pastor Carla Wilson, co-chair of the Racial Justice Task Force of the Lower Susquehanna Synod, on how her faith and identity inform her commitments to anti-racism and the Black Lives Matter movement.

God’s Love Lifts. I’ve had the famous song “Love lifts us up where we belong” running on repeat in my head as I ponder this week’s theme. Let’s take a listen and find comfort, though "The road is long, There are mountains in our way, But we climb a step every day.” With his help, love will help us soar with the eagles.

Today is Ash Wednesday.

The beginning of the Lenten season this Ash Wednesday, reminds us of our desire to repent from the myths that distract us from our true nature and return to what God creates and calls us to be.

In Psalm 51:1-17 we read: "Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me."

This day marks the beginning of a season of turning. Ashes signify our desire to turn from the sin of denying that we are creatures of the Creator. The temptation to deny this truth disintegrates us from the very fabric of creation that nurtures life. Faced with this temptation in the garden, God reminds humans that we are dust, and to dust, we shall return. We are made of the very carbon with which we mark ourselves this day. But this is more than a lament. It is a hope-filled confession. In an age when the unjust misuse and overuse of carbon reveal the hardness of our heart towards co-creatures and our common home, these carbon ashes signal a repentance from the myths that distract us from our true nature. The ashes mark a return to what God creates and calls us to be.

Giver of Life, help us remember that we are made of dust, to dust we shall return,
and until then, renew a right spirit, so that we may tend the gift of life.

During this winter storm there are small things you can do on this "Shrove Tuesday". It is time to care for your neighbor. Call and check on members of your community, particularly shut ins and other vulnerable populations in your midst.

Most of all in this extended period of cold and weather you can take time to pray, to contemplate the power of God’s creation, to be aware of and give thanks for the gifts you have been entrusted with to steward, to consider again how the cracks in our society have been revealed and the reality that we are in the same storm but we are in vastly different boats. #NTNL #InMissionTogether


Buddhists who observe Nirvana day often do so by examining their lives, in order to make changes needed to help them achieve perfect peace.
This sounds like a great spiritual practice that we, Christians can use too!


Happy Monday y'all! Stay warm. Check on your friends and family members.


A message from Bishop Erik Gronberg:
Extreme dangerous cold is in and going to be across the territory of NT-NL Synod, ELCA for much of the next week. Please be safe. Check on vulnerable people. Use the online skills we have cultivated this past year. #NTNL #InMissionTogether

Latest data continue to say the same thing over and over ... coldest air in decades arriving Monday and Tuesday of next week, with the coldest readings on Tuesday morning as we all fall to the single digits and several locations dipping below zero. This air arrives straight off the ice cap in the Arctic and stabs deep into the heart of Texas!

The worst wind chills will be Sunday night into Monday as a winter storm passes overhead bringing widespread snow and wind chills between 5 below and 20 below zero.

Precipitation with the first winter storm will start as freezing drizzle/freezing rain/snow mix during the day Sunday (possibly Saturday night in western portions of north Texas) transitioning to all snow Sunday night.

We get a break from the snow on Tuesday and then the next winter storm rolls over on Wednesday and Thursday. This second one will be even more aggressive bringing significant snow AND ice to north Texas and beyond.

The best chance for the ice with this second round will be just east and south of the Metroplex, but it cannot be totally ruled out locally since we are so close to where the ice and snow line will be. Just a slight deviation in the path of our second winter storm could bring the ice closer or farther away! The snow is a given, however. This is going to be a dangerous mess to say the least.

Some of you have asked if this is a McFarland Signature, and the answer is "not quite." I would call it a "McFarland Wannabe." The upper air wind flow pattern is not quite the classic signature, but the result is nonetheless the same: brutally cold Arctic temperatures all the way down to the Rio Grande Valley.

Snowfall accumulations will be significant for all of north Texas, and as mentioned in my last post, amounts will be variable with some locations getting modest totals while others getting overwhelmed with perhaps 10 inches or more when you combine the amounts from the Sunday night/Monday Storm with the Wednesday/Thursday Storm.

And because of all the snow and ice, temperatures will not get above freezing next week.

In the meantime, same ole same ole. Mostly cloudy with patchy freezing drizzle with highs from the mid 20s to low 30s on Saturday. So, take advantage of our "warm" day tomorrow to make your last-minute preparations, and we will get through this!


A reminder: you are a fearfully and wonderfully made child of God. Have a great Friday!
