Greetings to the congregation of Lord of Life Lutheran Church and to our visitors!

After prayer and meeting with the Chairperson Rager and others, we have planned for a safe return to Worship, on Sunday June 14, 2020 @ 10 am. Please take a look at your emails, so that on Sunday you will be able to follow the guidelines to return to Worship safe. The CORV19 pandemic is not over, we have disinfected the entire upstairs everything is done. We will only have access to Worship in the Sanctuary and leave the premises, there will be no Social Gathering at all, remain six feet apart entering and exiting the door, no contact of any kind. Please.

 

Prayer:

Living God, our refuge and strength, even the wind and sea obey your voice. Put the wind back in its place, and say to the sea: Peace! Be still! Fill us with great faith and save us from the surging water so that we may tell the good news of Your saving love, through Jesus Christ, Amen.

 

Grace,

Pastor Morten

Greetings to the congregation of Lord of Life Lutheran Church and to our visitors!

 

I would first like to say, “I already miss you all very much!”

 

I am in prayer daily asking the Father to grant me patience while He works this situation out, per His will, and as He answers our prayers to the question of “How does our family of followers of Christ fit into His master plan during the COVID-19 outbreak?”

 

Prayer changes all things, hear me clearly, even if we don’t like His answers. I will start here: there is something happening here that will become “our good and His glory” and I finish with “Our thoughts are not his thoughts” (Isaiah 55:8).

 ...

Let us end this first note with prayer.

 

Prayer:

Living God, our refuge and strength, even the wind and sea obey your voice. Put the wind back in its place, and say to the sea: Peace! Be still! Fill us with great faith and save us from the surging water so that we may tell the good news of Your saving love, through Jesus Christ, our hope in this storm.

 

Grace,

Pastor Morten

GOOD FRIDAY

We are glad you have joined us.

April 10, 2020

Eyes on Jesus: "God’s Eyes"

 

As We Gather

Good Friday is the most solemn day of the Christian year. It is the day our Savior died for us. It is the day we were redeemed from our sins by the voluntary death of God Himself at the hands of man. We are standing at the foot of the cross, but there are others standing with us. Simon of Cyrene, the people who mock Jesus, and the centurion all have their eyes on the cross as well. But the only viewpoint that truly matters is that of the triune God. The Father sees our sins taken upon Jesus on the cross, the Son looks on us in forgiving mercy, and the Holy Spirit sees the message we are to proclaim.

 

 “Oh, come, let us fix our eyes on Jesus” (Hebrews 12:2).

 

 WORSHIP

Prologue: The Lord be with you. And also with you.

Adoration of the Cross:  "O come, let us worship Him."

WELCOME

MAUNDY THURSDAY

We are glad you have joined us.

April 9, 2020

 

“More Than Meets the Eye”

 

As We Gather

This Lent, we used the metaphor of eyesight to follow how different individuals in Mark’s Gospel viewed Jesus during His Passion. As we gathered, many misunderstood who He was and what He was doing; but, sometimes, by faith people, did recognize Him correctly. As we conclude the 40 days of Lent, we ask: How are we like or unlike the people who saw Jesus in the flesh? What should we have seen? What has Jesus done to save us from our sins by blood, suffering, and death? It is difficult for us to look through the eyes of the disciples when they were celebrating Passover, but it was within that context that Jesus pronounced the bread and wine to be His body and blood. Today, it is in the liturgy of the Lord’s Supper that our Lord’s words call us to recognize more than meets our physical eyes.

Eyes on Jesus: Worldly Eyes

As We Gather

This final mid-week of Lent, we will continue to use the Mark's metaphor of eyesight to examine how the various people viewed Jesus during His Passion. Again, I repeat, they misunderstood him and who He was and what He was doing, but, sometimes by faith people did recognize Him correctly.

 

Order of Worship

Introit:  Psalm 2

Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying, 3 “Let us burst their bonds apart and cast away their cords from us.” 4 He who sits in the heavens laughs; 5 Then he will speak to them in his wrath, and terrify them in his fury, saying, 6 “As for me, I have set my King on Zion, my holy hill.” I will tell of the decree: The Lord said to me, “You are my Son; today I have begotten you. 8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession. 9 You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.” 10 Now therefore, be warned, O rulers of the earth. 11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish in the way, for his wrath is quickly kindled.

Introit: Psalm 130

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord! 2 O Lord, hear my voice! Let your ears be attentive to the voice of my pleas for mercy! 3 If you, O Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? 4 But with you there is forgiveness, that you may be feared. 5 I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; 6 my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning. 7 O Israel, hope in the Lord for with the Lord there is steadfast love, and with him is plentiful redemption. 8 And he will redeem Israel from all his iniquities…”

Eyes on Jesus: Murderous Eyes

 

As We Gather

This mid-week for Lent, we will continue to use the metaphor of eyesight to examine how the various people in Mark’s Gospel viewed Jesus during His Passion. In most cases, they misunderstood him and who He was and what He was doing; then, sometimes by faith, people did recognize Him correctly.

 

We have these forty days, including today, as we take a look at the chief priests and scribes, who saw Jesus as an obstacle to be rid of by violence. Yet, during the Passover festival, they would unwittingly bring about the sacrifice of the ultimate Passover Lamb. How, then, should we view those who oppose the Gospel today? And how might these insights guide our prayers?

 

Worship

Introit:                                         Psalm 122, 145, 17, 25

I lift up my eyes to the hills from where does my help come? My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth. The eyes of all look to You, and You give them their food in due season. You open Your hand; You satisfy the desire of every living thing. Keep me as the apple of Your eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings. My eyes are ever toward the LORD, for He will pluck my feet out of the net. For I know that my Redeemer lives, and at the last He will stand upon the earth. And after my skin has been thus destroyed, yet in my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not another. My heart faints within me! [Job19:25].

Introit: Psalm 142

“With my voice I cry out to the Lord; with my voice I plead for mercy to the Lord. I pour my complaint before him; I tell my trouble before him. When my spirit faints within me, you know my way! In the path where I walk they have hidden a trap for me. Look to the right and see; there is none who take notice of me; no refuge remains to me; no one cares for my soul. I cry to you, o Lord; I say, “You are my refuge, my portion in the land of the living.”
