PASTORS CORNER


 



Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ;

The goodness of God continues to shine through the people and work of Incarnation Lutheran Church. For the past 99 years members of this congregation have pulled together, opened their hearts, shared their gifts, and given thanks to God through the ministries that have and continue to happen here.

As we enter the centennial year of this congregation we give thanks for the 99 years of ministry that has occurred; with thanksgiving we REMEMBER God’s faithfulness. We remember and give thanks for people of faith within the community who have stepped forth to lead and guide the congregation. We remember the power of collective voices when standing up and speaking out against injustice. We remember the saints who have gone before us who worked hard to build the church and the congregation throughout the decades, even as we remember the saints of today who continue to say, “Yes with the help of God,” as we build and dream into reality the ministries this community needs.

As we enter this 100th year of ministry, we RENEW our commitments to this community with hope for the neighborhood, city, and world around us. God is always making all things new. God provides the people and equips the saints to do the work of ministry. God nudges us to open ourselves to try new things, to reach out in new ways, to see what others have perhaps overlooked. We say “Yes, Lord,” as we are renewed and we work in hope to sustain and renew the ministries of the congregation.

As we enter this jubilee year of Incarnation Lutheran Church, we REJOICE in our remembering and our renewing, and in the love of God that keeps us grounded in the Gospel, the Good News that sustains us. We celebrate the strength to endure provided by God’s grace and love for God’s people here. We dream, look ahead, and rejoice in possibilities God provides, possibilities of reaching out in love, new and sustaining partnerships, growth, building modification (accessibility)…

We REMEMBER RENEW REJOICE in faith, hope, and love, as we enter into the season of stewardship. Without you we cannot Remember, Renew, or Rejoice completely. Everyone is needed. God continues to call us to gather together. Your participation is important, whatever your contributions may be. The work of the people, that is the liturgy of life into which God continues to call each of us, requires all of us. We cannot do the work without God or without you! Thus as we enter into the 100th year of ministry at the corner of 15th and Keefe, I invite you to prayerfully consider how God is calling you to Remember, Renew, and Rejoice.

Together we are blessed to share the Good News, to shine with the Light of God, to be a blessing. Through Incarnation, you have an opportunity to be part of this blessing. In sharing your gifts and talents, your time, your financial and other resources, you make the holy work of God possible. It is with our hands, (feet, finances, times, talents) and with faith, hope and love, that we do God’s work.

In this celebratory year, we REMEMBER RENEW REJOICE together in the work that God has done, does today, and will continue to do into the future. Thank you for supporting God’s work through the ministries of Incarnation Lutheran Church!

In faith, hope and love;
Pastor Diane
