A Message From Pastor Bob...    

Lord, Give Me A Sign!

A red light is a sign, isn’t it? It’s a signal that tells us STOP! Do Not Proceed! Hold Your Horses! We all know that a red light or stop sign ALWAYS requires us to put the brakes on, regardless of time, weather, or anything else. But signs can be so easy to ignore.

 It was my birthday, and I was living in friendly Fridley, MN. A few friends met me in Minneapolis for dinner and to see “The Phantom of the Opera” at The Orpheum Theater. It was a terrific evening, and a late one. I didn’t get back to my apartment till after 1 a.m. That night, when sitting at a red light two blocks from home, is when I did it. After checking every which way, a thought came to me, a thought not expected from my obedient, Lutheran brain: “It’s 1 o’clock in the morning! No one’s around, so make that left turn!” So I did, and the lights came on. Red and blue flashing lights, attached to a police car. With a police officer inside.

 You know the drill. The officer asked where I was going, where I had been, etc. I told him that I had one glass of wine with dinner over six hours ago, and the only other substance in my system was the adrenaline now pulsing through my veins. And even thought it was my birthday, I got a gift I didn’t want – a ticket. Sheeeeesh! Signs can be so easy to ignore.

 On Ash Wednesday and Sundays in Lent, our worship will be based on “The Signs of Lent,” signs that can be so easy to ignore.

Like the signs we see along the roads that tell us what to do, we will encounter signs on our Lenten journey that point to Christ. We’ll bump into signs such as U-Turn, Stop, and Dead End. While we are familiar with these signs and their meanings, we, like some clown driving home at 1 o’clock in the morning, rebelliously ignore them, and unfortunately, suffer the                consequences. Getting a traffic ticket is one thing. Losing our way on our Christian journey is an entirely different situation. Note: During Lent, Sunday and Wednesday Worship services will be on Facebook Live at our Facebook page, Peace Lutheran Church – Menomonie, WI.

 After Ash Wednesday, our Wednesday Lenten Worship will feature “Beneath the Cross: Letters from A Good Friday World.”

These letters, with great imagination, are from those who were closest to the crucifixion. They believed in Jesus’ ministry, but the dark, tragic events of Good Friday convinced them it was the end of him, the end of his influence, and the end of their world. We will read, to name a few, letters from Jesus’ mother, Mary, to her mother; an inquiry from Simon Peter to the Acme Fishing Supply Company; and a suicide note scrawled out by Judas Iscariot. Note: We do not celebrate Holy Communion on Wednesdays in Lent.

 Dear friends in Christ, please join us – either in-person or on Facebook Live – for our Lenten Season. And, seriously, pray that we may be able to gather for Easter Sunday Worship this year. If we cannot, we’ll manage. If we can, praise the Lord! So, drive carefully while on the road and on your spiritual journey. And celebrate that Good Friday was not the end of all things Jesus! Please stay tuned for updated information on Lent and other events.

 Peace,

Pastor Bob
