  • And we continue to dance. We continue to experience life in this body. These holy bodies, and this beautiful  body to which we belong. We dance with these bodies, named and imaged by our Creator, beloved by God, liberated by God.

    We dance to proclaim liberation and an end to suffering for all. We dance to celebrate God’s lovingkindness.

    We dance as we are sent, sent out to proclaim this baptized, resurrected life that we live.

  • And the Sunday liturgy sends you. It sends you from here to be different. It sends you to be yourself and use your God-given talents. It sends you to honor the differences in others: people of different backgrounds and races, religions and spiritualities, orientations and identities, personalities and political perspectives.

    Though we are all different, we are one in Christ Jesus. We are one in baptism. We are one at the Lord’s table. We are one in our love for the church and our love of music. Though diverse and different, in God’s grace we are indeed one.

  • No matter who you are or what your story includes God loves you and that love changes everything.

  • The reality is that sometimes there are no answers. The grief is too raw, the grief all-encompassing. In such times it feels like life as we have known it is over. Jews have prescribed mourning rituals, and they vary whether it has been seven days, thirty days, or a year since the death of a loved one. I wish we had something similar. Too often we rush through grief, thinking after a couple of months we should be able to move right on.

    Sometimes we don’t have the words, we don’t know what to say. And perhaps silence, an embrace, or a gentle touch is all that is needed. And for the record, a few more things not to say: “Everything happens for a reason. She’s in a better place. I know you exactly how you feel.”


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.
