Join us for Good Friday worship. April 10, 2020
It is a long time since a brief 6 month interim at CLC that ended too soon. Reading through the web page and FB posts, I get the impression CLC is doing what it does best: celebrating what it means to be a community of faith with gifted people and staff. Our daughter and family continue to live in Grapevine. Perhaps I'll get to sneak in the back door soon for a visit.
Looking ahead to Sunday: "A whole lot of our sacred Scripture deals with such morally ambivalent stories. Jacob is in, in at least some ways, in the wrong before both God and human beings. But he holds fast to God and demands a blessing anyway. The widow may or may not be asking for something good and just, but she fights all the same. Jesus correctly understands that his audience--including us!--is more likely to need lessons in holding fast to what's good than in knowing what's good in the first place."
What a wonderful celebration of Thanksgiving! Thank You to all who joined us and helped make our Thanksgiving luncheon a wonderful success. Thank You for getting to know our friends from Back On My Feet! I think the smiles in this photo say it all!
Looking forward to the first “Contemporary” church service this Sunday! Very excited to be a part of this!
Merry Christmas from Music Ministry:
CLC Advent Concert 2017
Hello Community! The 2nd Annual Pumpkin Arrival party turned out to be an AWESOME night! We started out with being informed of an hour delay so we made good use of the time and put up the pumpkin patch banner and the concert banner in front of the church, brought some tables to the front for use and put out some food and drinks for all the hard workers we were expecting (I am in favor of feeding the people :). In total, we had about 40 volunteers overall this evening and for that, we are fortunate and truly, very grateful. We had some wonderful fellowship in some truly beautiful weather as volunteers trickled in "early" because they hadn't received the delay message. The kids played ball in the yard, friends caught up and volunteers discussed plans to do even more work in the church, what a blessing! There was pumpkin bread, veggies, snacks and drinks and everyone was invited to eat, drink, and be merry while we patiently waited for the pumpkin truck to arrive. Then our crowd grew after the youth arrived from their group dinner along with some more volunteers and all of the sudden, cheers broke out! A very accomplished big-rig truck driver arrived and pulled into the parking lot, confidently backed up (in the dark), the doors were opened and we began the process of unloading the pumpkin shipment (finally :). When the door opened on the back of the truck, the brave ones volunteered to hop onto the truck to work that particular job. Gratefully the temperature was in the low 70’s. God was watching out for us tonight, I am certain. They started by passing out the boxes of gourds and mini pumpkins down to the out-stretched arms of the eager volunteers. These folks were more than happy to carry them to just right spot in our beautiful pumpkin patch. We started to fill the pallets which turned our normally beautiful green lawn into a wonderful, festive, pumpkin scene! We have stacks of gorgeous pumpkins filling our yard that are larger in quantity and BETTER in quality than last year! I am not sure at what point each person realized that this year, the crop was not only good, it was really, really GREAT. Was it the fellowship that gathered without regard to changing times? Was it the beautiful pumpkins of all colors that were being taken to their very special spot on our lawn? Was it the variety of shapes and sizes of the pumpkins this year compared to last? Was it when we filled more than 50 pallets, 20 more than last year, and then started on the courtyard finally? Was it when we were still unloading after the pumpkin counter clicked past 1600 on the counter? Was it when we felt our backs working harder than we can remember (shout out to farmers for enduring some challenging, physical, work). I truly do not know, but I do know that I personally experienced the Love of God through our work tonight, not just by our group but also by the farmers themselves, the truck drivers, and all who were in any way a part of the creation of our beautiful pumpkin patch this year. I look forward to sharing this Blessing with you and our community in the upcoming weeks! I send sincere thanks to each person that was there tonight, to those that have supported the community and youth outreach effort this year and last, to those that have purchased pumpkins and invited others to visit our patch as well. Blessings to you! In His service, Lasca Weiss

[06/12/20]   IMPORTANT NEWS: We are postponing Sunday's planned outdoor Holy Communion service until next week, June 21 at 10:45 a.m. One of our preschool staff tested positive for COVID-19 this week and we are minimizing our presence until the required follow-up work has been finished. I'm personally disappointed to not be able to gather around the altar this week, but it's the safe and responsible decision. Please keep our school, staff, children, and parents in your prayers and thank you for your patience and understanding.

Sermon Preview: The Big Ten

Sermon preview: "Now that we're in the season after Pentecost, we're making Sunday worship a little shorter and easier for folks participating at home. And to do my part, I'm going to preach a little shorter too. For the next several weeks we'll be spending some time on the Ten Commandments. Until fairly recently, the Ten Commandments were a regular part of Lutheran worship. They were recited as part of Confession services, set to hymns in the Sunday liturgy, and frequently preached on."

Sermon: Humbling Ourselves

Sermon for the seventh Sunday of Easter (May 24): "My resistance to this verse had really two sources. The first was that I was reluctant to say anything that seemed to attribute the cause of suffering to God. I did not want to invite the question of whether God takes some and spares others and why that might be. And this is all the more important when we humans are inclined to confuse the effects of human injustice or mistakes with the judgment of God. So whenever there is a historical or human cause for some evil in the world I always want to focus on that first rather than attributing it to God's will."

Sermon: Discerning Spirits

Sermon for Pentecost: "And so we see in Paul's letter to the Corinthians today: You were pagans once, and when you were, you were led astray by idols. These idols are works of human hands that human beings fill up with our own words, and then we all pretend to believe that the idol is the one speaking to us. And you, people of Corinth--gentile people in a city built by Roman imperialism--you are empowered to say that Jesus of Nazareth--a non-citizen crucified Jewish God-man from Palestine--is lord of the world and of your life only by the Holy Spirit. Only the Spirit could give you the power to believe that and to confess it."

Sermon: Image of God

Sermon for Holy Trinity Sunday: "So it is fitting it is fitting that on this day when we confess and we celebrate this mysterious truth of our faith we do it in words that remind us of the role of human beings in the world the Holy Trinity creates: that we are the one who bear God's image not in a shape, not in beards and white garments but in our capacity to love and to create. And on this day when we celebrate this awesome mystery of Christian faith we are reminded by these words that we cannot rightly exalt and glorify God without also creating more space for human beings to grow. We are reminded at the same time that we cannot degrade or diminish humanity without also dragging God down and making God in our own minds smaller and meaner than God truly is"

clcdallas.org Sisters and brothers grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. We serve an awesome God. I maybe don't say that enough. We worship an awesome God. As my mentor...
