Pastor's Message
Welcome to the New Year, Friends in Christ!

Not to start out on a grim note, but 2022 was a difficult year! The war in Ukraine; weather extremes and climate change; divisive politics; inflation; Covid/flu/RSV; a tough Packers' season; and the list goes on. More than once, we have thought and prayed "Come, Lord Jesus-and please make it soon!"

None of us has a crystal ball for what 2023 may bring for us personally, or for the world as a whole. So we begin in trust and hope, that God-Emmanuel, is with us and that God can use us.

About 20 years ago, our then ELCA Presiding Bishop wrote a little book entitled: A Good Time to Be the Church. That would be a great motto for us going into 2023. Being the church of Jesus Christ, and being "Church Together", reminds us we are called, blessed, gathered, and sent to share and reflect the light and truth and love of Christ. We do have much of what the world needs! We have truth and love to share. We have compassion and kindness that overflows. We learn and teach servanthood and hopefulness. We breathe and celebrate joy. We need each other, and the world around us needs us to be that kind of church!

I have shared this favorite prayer before, and will again: Lord God, you have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown. Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

-Pastor Paul

MATTHEW 5:1-12 = BLESSED ARE… Bible Background: In Matthew’s gospel, Jesus’ standout teaching is summarized in the Sermon on the Mount (chapters 5-7). We need not assume that this was all one ‘sermon’! That would be a lot of content! Moses went up on the

JOHN THE BAPTIST + BAPTISM OF JESUS MATTHEW 3:1-17 Bible Background: John the Baptist appears and acts like one of the prophets. He attracts people and scares them away at the same time. Jesus and John are cousins. John issues a call to serious repentance. People respond! Maybe John has tapped

Matthew 1:18-25 The Birth of Jesus Bible background: Only Matthew and Luke report Jesus’ birth. The Gospels of Mark and John do not. Matthew approaches Jesus’ birth from the perspective of Joseph-Jesus’ adoptive father. We read of Joseph’s dilemma and Joseph’s
