  • All who are “lowly” are encompassed in the hope Mary proclaims. God looks with favor on you and calls you to bear light to a broken world. To proclaim in words and actions the mighty deeds of God. To share the good news that God’s love, justice and peace are for all. That the mighty will be brought down from their imaginary thrones and those who hunger for the goodness of life and love will be filled.

  • When the Israelites were disillusioned, God provided manna to sustain them day after day. Each Lord’s Day we gather to feed on Jesus, the bread of life, our spiritual nourishment. We take the life of Jesus into our bodies that we may become what we eat. Rather than working for the bread that perishes and leaves us disillusioned and wanting, we feast upon the life of God that sustains us for the hard work before us.

  • We live in a time of already, but not yet, where God has bound the strong man, but the work of binding continues. Because the strong man continues to reign and we see continued faithfulness to them myth of redemptive violence. With every woman silenced and paid off in the name of consent, with every bomb dropped in the name of peacemaking, with every police bullet that tears through the flesh of our black and brown siblings in the name of safety, and with every migrant child ripped from their mothers arms in the name of law and order we are witnesses to and complicit with the violent deeds of the strong man.

    But God has bound the strong man. We can hold fast to non-violence and have faith in a God that has come to us in Jesus Christ not so that we would be part of the “right” religion, advanced at the expense of the whole, but that we would be able to see ourselves as part of the whole, so that we would not forget the thou or believe that we must comply with the rule of might and put ourselves above others.

  • Here in this holy house where we worship and praise, where we come to rest and to pray, where we come away to receive nourishment, here in this holy house, as beautiful and wonderful as it is, as much as we desperately need what we find here, here in this holy house is NOT where we’re meant to stay. No, like God, we are called to move about in tent and tabernacle, a nomadic, a pilgrim people called to go OUT to dwell with God’s people in the world, to feed, to teach, to heal.

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.
