Living Lutheran

"There’s something sacred about bearing witness to the bright array of colors streaked across a dark, night sky. It’s a reminder that, even in the darkness, light can shine."


Today we observe “God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday. Our dedicated day of service is an opportunity to celebrate who we are as the ELCA – one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. #GodsWorkOurHands

Happy Easter! Christ is risen!

When they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had already been rolled back. As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man, dressed in a white robe, sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed; you are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has been raised; he is not here. Look, there is the place they laid him. (Mark 16:4-6)]

The Work of the People

The god of white supremacy...A clip with Jennifer Bailey from a series of films I'm working on with the Faith Matters Network.

Bishop Erik Gronberg

Peace on earth, we pray!

Tonight in Charlottesville, VA white supremicists have gathered. In response clergy and civil rights leaders have gathered to stand against racial hatred. After a mass prayer service tonight in support of peace and justice and attended by ELCA bishops and clergy white supremicist groups attempted to prevent worshippers leaving the church.

Thankfully police and other peace officers have been able to escort out worshippers despite some violence. I have been in personal contact with colleagues there and the situation has been very dangerous and tense. We pray for peace and for our first responders standing for the right to peacefully assemble in the face of violence.

Tomorrow (Aug 12) there will be another act of public witness against racial injustice in Charlottesville. The Rev. William O. Gafkjen, bishop of the Indiana-Kentucky Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and chair of the ELCA Conference of Bishops, has issued the following prayer on behalf of the conference:

Just and merciful God, we give you thanks for our sisters and brothers – bishops, pastors, deacons, people of God – who this Saturday walk the way of the cross in Charlottesville, Va. On this day and in that place, they join other courageous and faithful people across time and space to stand against bigotry, hatred and violence; to stand with those who are intended victims; and to stand for justice and mercy, peace and equality for all people.

We stand with them in prayer, asking you to empower them, protect them, and use their witness as hopeful sign of your resurrection reign afoot in your beloved and troubled world. By your might, break the bondage that bigotry, hatred and violence impose on their victims and their perpetrators. May your kingdom come on earth as in heaven. And, we pray, empower us in our own communities to follow their lead as fellow servants to your dream of a community in which all people and their gifts are welcomed and honored, cherished and celebrated as beloved children of a just, merciful and loving God; through Jesus Christ crucified and risen for the life of the world. Amen

[05/24/17]   June 21st is the date the Oromo people celebrate the
life of Onesimus Nesib (1856-1931).Onesimus was born
into the Oromo people in Ethiopia. He was captured by
slave traders and taken from his homeland to Eritrea,
where he was bought freed and educated by Swedish
missionaries. He translated the Bible into Oromo and
eventually returned to his homeland to preach the gospel
to the people in their own language.
The Dallas Oromo congregation will be celebrating their patron saint on
June 18th. We are invited to their fundraising luncheon following their
11:30 worship. Please come and enjoy their ethnic food and coffee.

the land of prosperity.” Pastor Sileshi and the congregation.

ELCA Advocacy

The Rev. Elizabeth A. Eaton, presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), and the Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church, have issued a joint statement calling for prayer, fasting and advocacy addressing cuts to public programs that are vital to hungry people who are living in poverty.

The statement “For Such a Time As This” calls for fasting on the 21st of each month through December 2018, at which time the 115th Congress will conclude. The 21st of each month is targeted because by that day about 90 percent of Supplemental Nutrition Benefits Program (SNAP) benefits have been used.

The call to fast will launch with a group of national and local leaders participating in a three-day fast May 21-23. This is in anticipation of the May 21 Global Day to End Famine – a broad coalition of church networks, denominations, faith-based organizations and concerned believers led by the World Council of Churches.
