Trunk or Treat or WHAT?

Friends, here in this season of learning about “Life on Mission”, it is both natural and important that we take steps to put feet to that idea.  Therefore, I strongly urge you to bring YOUR trunk (replete with candy and decorations and such. Click HERE to register) to YOUR church on the evening of October 30, so that you may bless YOUR community by loving YOUR neighbors as YOURself.  Hebrews 13:15-16 states, 15 Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. 16 And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.  (Emphasis added.)  Worshipers, this is what we are called to do.  So while I’m blessed to see each one of you in the WG house, together, worshiping our great God every Sunday, I’m now imploring you to take it outside and worship on October 30 by doing good and sharing with others!  If your plan is to bring your children instead of your trunk, that’s fantastic and you are welcome!  Know that YOU also can do good and share with others by INVITING a friend or two or three along.  So come one, come all and bring YOUR worship by coming to Trunk or Treat at WG!

Baptized into the death and resurrection of Jesus, Lori has joined her Lord in heaven. We grieve but we grieve with HOPE. Please join us for worship on Saturday at 9 a.m. at The Lutheran Church of Webster Gardens. If you cannot join us for worship there will be visitation at Kutis in Affton from 3 - 9 p.m. on Friday. Nothing separates us from God's love!

Today is a day of perspective as we all mourn the passing of Lori Christiansen, yet we also celebrate her life – the one she shared with all of us here on earth and the one she is living now, in the presence of Jesus, face to face with Him, without pain or tears or sorrow.  It’s a good place; the only truly good place, really.  And to be in His presence is why we worship.  We want and need His presence.  We want and need to know our God in the fullness of His glory.  That’s what our community, our service, our faith walk is all about – to be reconciled to God, to bask in His presence, to fulfill the truth that we are His inheritance and He is ours.  And so we practice that here on earth.  We practice our faith, and we practice worshiping Him with our heart, mind, soul and strength.  We practice worshiping in spirit and in truth, all the while knowing that from our earthly perspective we can only ever see and know in part.  So today we celebrate our worshiping sister, Lori, who practiced her worship so well here on earth, and who now is blessed to see the fullness of His worth, the fullness of His glory.  She is free now to worship without earthly fetters or inhibitions.  What a glorious new perspective that must be…
