Luther and Lent
March 5, 5:30pm
We begin the season of Lent with Luther’s understanding of sin, repentance, and grace. Sound boring? Not until you hear Luther encouraging us to “sin boldly!” We’ll eat boldly too, even though it’s Lent, with some of Luther’s favorite foods. We’ll try to supplement you’re potluck offerings with some stout German cooking, but let’s try to center our foods around a German theme. Sign up in the centrum if you can join us.
We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich, dirt poor, yo no habla Ingles. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying new-borns, squirming children and frazzled moms and dads. We welcome those in flip flops and those in three piece suits.
We welcome you if you can sing like Frank Sinatra or can't carry a note in a bucket. You're welcome here if you're "just browsing," just woke up, or just got out of jail. We don't care if you're more Lutheran than Luther, more Catholic than the Pope, or more religious than Billy Graham. You're just as welcome if you haven't been to church since last Christmas or since little Joey's Baptism.
We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, fantasy football dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters.
We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you're having problems or you're down in the dumps. Truth is, we've all been there too.
If you blew all your offering money at the rip-off casinos you're welcome here.
We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, that Elvis is still alive, or that the Cubs ...Texas Rangers will someday win the World Series.
We offer a welcome to those who work too hard, don't work at all, or can't figure out their life's calling.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both.
We offer a special welcome to those who are still regretting past mistakes, could use a prayer right now, or have had it up to here with "organized religion."
We welcome those who are here because grandma is visiting and wanted to go to church and even those who got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We welcome left-wing, right-wing, or no wing at all. We welcome seekers and doubters.
We welcome YOU to Our Savior Lutheran Church because God welcomes us to meet at the cross. Here, in the welcoming arms of Jesus, there is faith, hope, love, and healing for all. -Anonymous
