Pastor John’s View for January

Happy New Year! I hope your Christmas celebrations were filled with joy! I enjoyed the great concerts and music we were blessed with this year at LUMC and wasn’t the Choir Cantata wonderful! We are entering this New Year with anticipation for what God will do through all of us at Lakeview. I am excited that we have some new learning opportunities coming in this first quarter of the year. One of my mentor’s, Pastor Bill Denlinger, encouraged me to…

The Peace of Israel, the Hope of Creation

Psalm 8:3-4; Ecclesiastes 3:9-13 We have awaited the arrival of a weary young woman, a strong donkey, and a patient father to the stable. We have anticipated the birth of the son through whom the world was  created, born now, wrapped in strips of cloth, surrounded by livestock. And we have celebrated the joy to the world that is Emmanuel. With tree and lights and neighbors and family, some of us have spent a week set apart, a week of…

Sing a New Song

Ecclesiastes 3:1-13 As the clock ticks toward midnight , the song that is this old year rapidly begins to fade. The writer of Ecclesiastes senses and exposes the turmoil of our human condition. As we reflect on the past twelve months, life seems to have oscillated from one extreme to the other. In retrospect, it seems as if there really has been a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven. We have planted, we have uprooted;…

There is no Weekly Lakeviewer this week due to the Christmas Holiday This Weeks scripture Hebrews 10:19-25 –  New International Version (NIV) A Call to Persevere in Faith 19  Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, 20  by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, 21  and since we have a great priest over the house of God, 22  let…

Unwrap the Gift!

Luke 2:1-20 How precious the Bible is, for it contains the stories of God’s self-revelation to men and women of faith who went before us. Such encounters are holy and defy description. Thus all scripture is a telling beyond expression and a hearing’ beyond comprehension . So it helps to think of the Bible as a place-a place where God and persons meet. That pushes me, as I read it, to stand in the place and re-experience the presence of…

A Long Wait for Christ’s Coming

Romans 1:1-7 Many people can pinpoint a moment in their past when  they felt Christ’s presence in a decisive, new way. That moment divided life into a BC and an AD. For many of us, life seemed dif­ferent after that one moment when Christ entered our story and dwelt with us in a clearer way. In the AD years that follow, we look ahead, increasing in maturity and walking in the light. But let us stop and look back for…
