  • I want to talk about resistance. To get there, I can’t resist naming one more movie on this Sunday before the Oscars. However, the movie of this sermon is one that was snubbed by the Academy. It’s Martin Scorsese’s religious epic, Silence. It did get a nomination for cinematography. Yet Scorsese is one of the greatest living American filmmakers. And Silence has been called his decade-long passion project. Granted, reviews are mixed: from a “punishing, three-hour experience” to “beautiful, unsettling, and one of the finest religious movies ever made.” I agree with both, to some degree.

  • Squeamish is what I feel if I’m watching a movie or TV show and there is a scene with a lot of blood and gore, or a gaping wound. I feel weird sensations in my body. Sometimes I peek through my fingers. It’s strange though: when I’m the pastor in hospital rooms, I’m usually OK. Maybe I have a “cool, calm and strong” switch.

  • I’ve been singing this song all week. Let is shine, let is shine, let it shine.  In Sunday school we sing the second verse “Hide is under a bushel? NO! I’m gonna let it shine.” I think that’s our favorite because we get to shout a loud, emphatic “no!” as a group and remind each other that God’s light shines in us at all times and we cannot/ should not hide it…ever!

  • In our 21st century context we have an interesting understanding of what it means to be blessed. I’m sure most of us have seen a Facebook post or tweet followed by #blessed. And I’d be willing to bet that whenever you see that hashtag, the post that it follows is likely describing a positive development in that person’s life.

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.
