Pastor's Message
Welcome to the New Year, Friends in Christ!

Not to start out on a grim note, but 2022 was a difficult year! The war in Ukraine; weather extremes and climate change; divisive politics; inflation; Covid/flu/RSV; a tough Packers' season; and the list goes on. More than once, we have thought and prayed "Come, Lord Jesus-and please make it soon!"

None of us has a crystal ball for what 2023 may bring for us personally, or for the world as a whole. So we begin in trust and hope, that God-Emmanuel, is with us and that God can use us.

About 20 years ago, our then ELCA Presiding Bishop wrote a little book entitled: A Good Time to Be the Church. That would be a great motto for us going into 2023. Being the church of Jesus Christ, and being "Church Together", reminds us we are called, blessed, gathered, and sent to share and reflect the light and truth and love of Christ. We do have much of what the world needs! We have truth and love to share. We have compassion and kindness that overflows. We learn and teach servanthood and hopefulness. We breathe and celebrate joy. We need each other, and the world around us needs us to be that kind of church!

I have shared this favorite prayer before, and will again: Lord God, you have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown. Give us faith to go out with good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

-Pastor Paul

JOB 14–19: NO HOPE FOR ME…OR IS THERE?   Bible Background: Chapter 14 ends the ‘first cycle of speeches’ between Job and his three friends. Job is as down and out as ever! In chapter 19, Job lashes out at his friends for ‘siding’ with an unjust God. But

JOB: “STOP THE WORLD, I WANT TO GET OFF!” What’s up with Job 3–4? Job chapters 1–2 set up the story line. Now chapter 3 starts the long, complex poem where Job complains and argues with friends (the poem part finishes 38 chapters later after God speaks.) This
