Statement of Sanctuary
As a community of the people of God, we are called to minister to all
people in our world, knowing that the world is often an unloving place.

Christ calls us to reconciliation and wholeness.  We are challenged by

the Gospel to be agents of healing within our society.

 

 


 

Today is the first day of Spring.  And I just heard on the radio of a winter weather forecast for today.  The season of life has been one of abundant rain, extreme fires, rapid destruction and signs of new life.  Death and life.  That is the season of Lent which means Spring as we identify with Christ's death and resurrection.

We together morn the death of a church member, friend and brother in Christ, David Tutt-Lowney who passed away rather unexpectedly on Saturday, March 9.  A memorial will be held on Saturday, March 30 at 3pm at Lutheran Church of Our Redeemer.  

The one year anniversary of the death of Stephan Clark and the massive casualties of the Ethiopian airlines and of the 49 dead in Christ Church New Zealand rattles us all.

While touring the destruction of the Camp Fire, Bishop Mark wrote how he saw bright tulips springing up along the side of the road.  The super bloom across California is a sign of spring, new life and that Easter will come.  For Jesus Christ, for David, for the Camp Fire victims, and all in senseless tragedy and loss, help us O God and bring us to the hope of the resurrection.
Happy First Day of Spring!
Pastor Jason

O Lord Jesus, make us instruments of your peace,
that where there is hatred,
we may sow love,
where there is injury, pardon,
and where there is despair, hope.
Grant, O divine master,
that we may seek to console,
to understand, and to love in your name,
for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Saint Francis of Assisi
