  • Sometimes we don’t feel we are loveable. Not only is Jesus declared “beloved at this baptism, so are we. The movie Beautiful Boy and the story of Ilhan Omar, Muslim American, elected to the House of Representatives, open up for us what it means to be beloved and beautiful.


  • The Lakeview Pantry-West location at 1414 W. Oakdale Ave. will be closing at the end of the January. Beginning in February Holy Trinity volunteers will serve at the Lakeview Pantry location at 3945 N. Sheridan Rd. The time of volunteering remains the same, 5:30pm-8:30pm, but the date will move to the fourth Tuesday of the month. The February volunteer opportunity will be on Tuesday, February 26. 

    An open house will be held at the Lakeview Pantry location at 3945 N. Sheridan Rd. to familiarize Holy Trinity volunteers with that location. The open house will take place on Wednesday, January 16 from 5-7pm. Sign-up to attend the open house here.

  • No matter what you might think is separating you from the love of Christ, whatever you might feel is keeping you on the outside looking in, to you I echo the words of Isaiah, “Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.”

    There is no object that can eclipse that light, there is no darkness deep enough to drown that light, for that light will lead us to our true home with Christ. Outsiders to the world we may be, but not with Christ. With Christ we are made a part of his body, heirs within the family of God, and sharers of that promise with the whole world. Amen.

  • What we do know about Jesus is that he always shows up in the least expected places: born in a lowly manger, in the temple instead of the caravan with his family, at the table with poor sinners instead of banquets with the wealthy, on the cross instead of robed as a high priest. 

    We don’t find Jesus in a clean, distant storyline, but we find him in the realities of everyday life, hidden but ever present in friends and flowers, in chaos and confusion, in suffering and longing.  

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.
