  • Sit with me...

    ...and hear the story of Job, a man who lost everything

    ...as we count OUR losses

    ...as we descend to the depths

    ...in revolt

    ...in hope

  • Over 80 persons participated in HTGatherings last spring. A follow-up email survey this summer revealed strong support for air-conditioning the Lakeview sanctuary and a preference for some kind of lift or elevator for access to the Magnolia Street building’s second floor, rather than a chairlift. Finally, following the HTGathering in the South Loop and conversation among staff and other leaders, the Congregation Council recommended that a percentage of funds raised for ministry “beyond our walls” be designated for a new community outreach initiative at HTLoop.

  • Like Francis, we talk to animals, but often in “baby talk.” What if we were to listen to the animals? What could they teach us about our place in the universe and how to fall in love with life again? And what does any of this have to do with the book of Job, which we are featuring during October?

  • In whatever way God’s grace empowers us to manifest even a measure of justice, let’s do it. Whether it’s through protest, advocacy, or service, let’s do it. It’ll get confounding at times and like Job, we will not even begin to fathom the complexity of the mysterious divine order of things, but through that humility we are all the more reliant on God’s grace to achieve any and every measure of justice this world will ever know. 

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.
