The Tensions of Faith

Habakkuk 1:1-4 It’s happened to most of us at one time or another. We purchase a product or a service, try to use it, and discover it does not measure up to our expectations. We return to the supplier, asking for a refund or cancellation of a service. Customer service doesn’t seem to care. Finally, in frustration, we ask, “May I speak with a supervisor, please?” The prophet Habakkuk appears to face a similar situation involving a three-way relationship among…

This Weeks scripture Ruth 1:16-18 New International Version (NIV) Naomi and Ruth 16 But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. 17 Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the LORD deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates…

The November 2018 Lakeviewer

Caring for Mind and Soul Ouch! What is That Squeal? Once in a while during worship, we are blessed with some feedback in our sound system that tests the limits of our hearing and hearing aids. There is a solution and we’re working on it! In part, we have some aged amplifiers and we are in need of some additional speakers but the current amplifiers can’t support them, so we’re always right on edge with volume. The new equipment will…

Pastor John’s View for November 2018

Stewardship  – A Way of Life “He who is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward him for what he has done.” Proverbs 19:17 This is a season of preparation; Thanksgiving is just ahead of us, we’re nearing the end of the “Christian Year” when Advent begins, and then Christmas is upon us. It is also a season of planning for churches; a time when we ask you to consider your giving for the year…
Life after rain

In God’s Own Time

Psalm 65:5-13 Abundant harvests. Streams filled with water. Soil softened for planting by the rain . Psalm 65 describes the beauty that results when God waters the earth. For this gift of creation we all shout and sing together for joy! We moderns complain about the rain and the temporary discomfort it causes, but rain is a time for celebration. The renewing waters are essential to our survival. Whenever I pray publicly and it is raining, I usually pray in…

This Weeks scripture Hebrews 7:23-28 The Message (TheBible In Contemporary Language) A Permanent Priesthood 23-25 Earlier there were a lot of priests, for they died and had to be replaced. But Jesus’ priesthood is permanent. He’s there from now to eternity to save everyone who comes to God through him, always on the job to speak up for them. 26-28 So now we have a high priest who perfectly fits our needs: completely holy, uncompromised by sin, with authority extending…

Hearts, Minds, Love

Jeremiah 31:27-34 God speaks through the prophet Jeremiah to Judah and its neighbors during the turbulent times of its history both politi­cally and religiously. Jeremiah comes as a prophet of comfort. Through Jeremiah God assures the people of Israel that  after exile will come restoration. God will establish a new covenant. Unlike the old covenant on stone tablets, God promises a new covenant “in their minds and … on their hearts.” God will not pass the sins of one generation…

Generations of the Faithful

Lamentations 1:1-6 The book of Lamentations, often ascribed to the prophet Jeremiah, contains five poems of mourning that make up the five chapters. Written at the time of the Babylonian capture and takeover of Judah, these poems describe the sorrow and suffer­ing the Jews felt and experienced during this national tragedy. Many Hebrew lamentations began with the Hebrew word for “how”-ekhah. In verse 1, the word how begins the first sentences, so in the Hebrew canon, this book is named…

Generations of the Faithful

Luke 17:1-10 Sometimes we need the “whole story” in order to understand what’s happening. The first four verses of Luke 17 shed some additional light on the disciples and us as generations of the faithful. Jesus has just given the disciples some “hard” teachings:  you better not cause another to stumble in his or her faith journey;  you will need to rebuke other disciples if they sin; and  you must forgive those who repent and ask forgiveness, even if it’s…
