GRACEnotes

GRACEnotes, April 19

Christ is risen! Alleluia! With that acclamation, Christians across the globe marked Easter Sunday. Death does not have the final say. No force can squelch God's love, mercy, grace, or peace. Indeed, in troubling times such as these, this is good news that comforts, strengthens, and inspires us personally; it's also the kind of news we can take to the streets and live in our daily lives.

Christ alive in us means we are Christ alive for our neighbor – and even our enemy. The challenge is how we'll take up that holy calling to make the risen Christ known in our day-to-day encounters. Hard as that may be, don't be daunted. The living God is with you, alive in you, and ready to spring forth in surprisng news ways through you. Alleluia! 

Yesterday, April 18, a tree was planted in Wittenberg, Germany, at the site of the Lutheran World Federation's Luthergarten. It's the tree the Luther House students and Grace Lutheran youth have cosponsored, our commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, commitment to creation care, and desire that God's peace reign throughout the world. The Luthergarten is located on the munitions ramparts of World War II. When finished, 500 trees planted by organizations around the world will create a forest of renewal lasting long into the future. Companion trees will be planted in Corvallis this spring at Luther House and either at Grace Lutheran or in a city park. Details will be announced later.

Sunday, I begin a new three-part adult education series called "What Have I Been Doing for 22 Years?" It's a way to sum up my ministry at Luther House and celebrate the ways we've nurtured "Hospitality" (April 23), "Community" (April 30), and "Service" (May 7) for over two decades. The classes are free and open to the public at the Grace Lutheran Ronnenkamp Hall, 9:45-10:45.
