Walk with Jesus

 October 2012

Every day is a walk with Jesus.  We Christians believe life is spent in the presence of our Lord.  Therefore, we can talk about every day as a day during which we walk with Jesus.  Some days we feel Jesus’ presence.  Some days we feel quite a distance from Jesus.  We boldly proclaim that, regardless of how we feel, Jesus is there.  Jesus walks with us every day.

Between now and the end of the year you will be asked by your church leaders to think about your use of money and possessions as a part of your walk with Jesus.  This is most appropriate, because when Jesus walked this earth with his disciples, he often talked about money and possessions.  If money was a part of Jesus’ first walk on this earth, it should be a part of our walk with Jesus today.

We believe that everything we have, is or was given in trust from God, given to us to care for and manage.  What we do with it is very much a part of our relationship with our Lord.  This will be our focus in the coming weeks as we discuss our current giving shortage and the offering needed to support the ministries of First Lutheran throughout 2013.

For the next few Sundays we will see bulletin inserts and hear personal talks in worship. 

You will also receive a letter from the Stewardship team and the Executive committee outlining a clear picture of our ministry and the financial support required to maintain First Lutheran Church.   We pray that each of you may reflect upon your own walk with Jesus, and how your participation in the ministry of First Lutheran is part of your faith.
