  • We ask ourselves, "Did I waste my time? My expenditure of energy? Was it worth it? Was my life worth it?" Yet, in God, all things belong, our bodies and souls. All things belong, even our great losses and things beyond our comprehension. Perhaps there is no greater loss than the body of Jesus crucified at a garbage heap. What a waste! Yet each Sunday we acclaim the cross as our life and resurrection. Everything belongs. So we press on to Easter. And to the God who provides a way through the wilderness wasteland to an extravagant springtime of new life.

  • In baptism we have been made one in Christ, and, once again, in the words of Paul from Second Corinthians, “if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!” We are reconciled and made new once again. Our old greedy or stubborn selves die, and we can once again return to our work and call as ambassadors of reconciliation, bringing heavenly healing, wholeness, grace, and unity to a foreign world that needs to know these things.

  • Lent is a time for some spiritual fertilizer. Be glad for one more year. One more spring. One more Easter. One more year to trust God more than money. One more year to forgive yourself and others. One more year to see your weaknesses and imperfections as the manure that may hold treasure.

  • May we all carry the image of ashes turned to fruit as we gather at the table of abundance and continue this Lenten pilgrimage together, living into who God created us to be. Open to the dismal days of wilderness and the days of radiant sunshine, we receive the good gifts that God provides for the journey.

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.
