The Rev. Lori Eickmann, Interim Pastor
I’m glad you have found your way to the Christ Lutheran Church website today. Whether you are a member or are just curious about CLC, whether you are looking for a place to worship while you are in town or a place to call your church home, I hope you enjoy exploring the site.
This is an exciting time at CLC because the call committee will receive candidate names from the bishop’s office in January — which means they will interview pastoral candidates and recommend a new pastor to the congregation in the first quarter of 2018!
It’s also exciting that the Lutheran church worldwide this year has commemorated the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, in which Martin Luther, a pastor and seminary professor in 16th Century Germany, taught that we need not and cannot earn God’s grace; rather, it is a free gift through Christ Jesus. How will CLC continue to be a re-forming church in the coming year — and how can YOU be part of that?
But these are also difficult times in a nation politically polarized, bedeviled by the rise of white supremacists and other hate groups, and reeling under the #Metoo revelations from Hollywood to the Capital to Silicon Valley and everywhere in between. We at Christ Lutheran stand with all those who are targeted because of their race, class, gender, sexual orientation, religion or abilities, and denounce violence against God’s people and creation. Join us in praying that the wisdom of the Holy Spirit guides in speaking and acting in ways that make for peace.
He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does
the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?
Micah 6:8 (NRSV)
Peace and joy,
Rev. Lori Eickmann
