Papa’s World – What Community means in Community – church

Love this - one of the members at Community Lutheran Church - Sterling, VA wrote this about our outreach - how we’re a community connecting to and for the larger community. I love this about who we are and I rejoice in how we get to celebrate these relationships!

About our Advent logo:
.
I chose a font that was messy—one that looks as though it was spray painted on the side of an overpass, or stenciled onto a protest sign. The Advent season itself begs this question, and I wanted the logo to have a feeling of urgency.

Greetings from the Lutheran Church of Rwanda’s Jubilee Celebration! 📷 Rahel Mwitula Williams

Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

Today is Reformation Sunday. By the end of the seventeenth century, many Lutheran churches celebrated a festival commemorating Martin Luther's posting of the Ninety-five Theses, a summary of abuses in the church of his time. At the heart of the reform movement was the gospel, the good news that it is by grace through faith that we are justified and set free. (Bread for the Day 2019, p. 414)

"Sola Scriptura" or "Scripture alone" is one of the "solas" of the Reformation. As we celebrate Reformation Sunday and Confirmation Day, our Gospel text asks, "what does it mean to continue in Jesus' word?"

Come and hear more! Wear red and celebrate! Oh, and enjoy a nerdy meme written in "Stranger Things" font just because 🤣

Good morning! ☀️ I’ll be here until 9:20, but welcome #prayerrequests, #phonecalls, and #messages all day (every day!) #freeprayer #freeprayerwednesdays

After the #rains, this beautiful #rainbow with brilliant colors emerged. Thanks for the gorgeous #gift, God! #clcsterlingva #creation #gratitude #appreciation #nofilterneeded @ Community Lutheran Church - Sterling, VA

lift up my eyes toward the mountains;

My help is from the Lord.
- Psalm 121:1-2 "The purpose of [contemplative] prayer is to access that which is most true about us, namely, our divine Source. The divine is always manifesting itself, though mostly in secret, to those who walk in the presence of God and allow this Presence to influence all their relationships."
