  • During the presidential campaign, and in the weeks after the election, I spent too much time in a Facebook group called Pantsuit Nation. This “by invitation only” group of Hillary supporters had endless stories, opinions and photos to share. Many people shared heartbreaking stories about their disagreements with friends and relatives that would likely end in permanent estrangement.

  • It’s a mind-blowing story about two frogs. One frog lived in a dank well. The other lived by the sea. One day the frog who lived by the sea visited the frog who lived by the well and tried to explain what the sea was like to the well-dweller frog.

  •  Lies, lies, lies. Think of the lies you’ve heard, the lies you’ve told, the lies and deception that are part of your story. “Don’t lie. Tell the truth,” we were told as children. “Liar, liar, liar, pants on fire,” we chanted on the playground. Maybe you have a good internal lie detector and you can see a lie on someone’s face.

  • If the liturgical year were like an airplane flight, then we are currently in the initial descent phase. Like last year Easter was our take off, where we ascended into the sky, high with the hope of the resurrection. Since then, we’ve just been moving along at cruising altitude through Pentecost, ordinary time, Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany. Don’t get me wrong, this year we’ve experienced some storms and turbulence, but now liturgically we are officially touching back down the ground as we approach Ash Wednesday and begin our wandering through the wilderness of Lent towards the cross of Good Friday.

Greetings from Pastor Mueller

Holy Trinity is unlike the churches most of us grew up in. Because it is fluid and ever-changing, the congregation has a remarkable spirit of openness and vitality. Yes, we value our Lutheran heritage and the ancient roots of our liturgy, yet we delight in a faith that is ever new and infused with a message for the needs and concerns of our contemporary world. As somebody recently put it: Our faith is two thousand years old, but our thinking is not.
