  • God as a Mother Hen. A Mothering God spreading her wings over us. A Mothering God feeding us with her very own life. A Mothering God sheltering her brood. A Mothering God embracing us through whatever risks and dangers are still ahead. What do these images, these metaphors for God, have to say to us today?

  • For many Lent is a time to "give something up" like sweets, meat or alcohol. This "fast" can be a balance to our over-indulgent lives and prepare us for the feast of Easter.

    The traditional "disciplines" of Lent are fasting, almsgiving and prayer. You might want to consider your own ways to incorporate these aspects into your Lenten observance. Lent can also be a time to take something on for the season.

  • In this community, we’re reminded of our identity and our future. When the world’s evils try to convince us that we are not good enough, that we can be freer with more power or prestige, that we should rely on ourselves and no one else, we come to this holy place to have our baptismal identity, Beloved Child of God, renewed and restored. Let us go forward in the next 40 days and beyond, rooted in this identity to live confidently in God’s abundant love for everyone.  

  • God is inviting us into the shelter of the most high even as we cry out “Gimme shelter!” It is here and now, it is in the delicious bread and wine we share at communion, it’s in refreshing water of our baptism, it is the infinite in the finite, it is ultimate and everlasting, the land of milk and honey, the shelter of the most high, in the desert, the wilderness, the war torn area, the stormy, pain soaked places of our lives, God’s shelter is there too.

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.
