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
