WELCOME TO LIVING WORD!

We, God’s people of Living Word Lutheran Church, grounded in Holy Scripture, are called to follow and share the inspired Word of God in Christ, to live as faithful and obedient servants, reaching out to all people with the love of Jesus Christ.  Join us!




Desperate for peace
During worship, our congregation “passes the peace.” More than a friendly greeting, this ritual is a symbol of Christ’s peace shared with us, for us to share daily with others. It also echoes Jesus’ exhortation that we be reconciled with others before offering our gifts in worship (see Matthew 5:23-24).

One Sunday morning, I sat behind a 9-year-old girl and her toddler brother. The boy was active and talkative, keeping his parents busy. As the pastor invited us to “share Christ’s peace with one another,” big sister popped up from her seat and offered to shake hands with everyone nearby, proclaiming “Peace!” to each.

As she tried this with her mom and brother, however, they were occupied with each other and wholly unaware of her efforts. Finally, I overheard her not inviting but demanding, “Mom! James! I want PEACE!” I had to smile, for the girl had voiced the desperation with which we all crave peace in the world and in our lives.

—Heidi Mann

Let us pray for the many Christians who are being persecuted and killed for their faith.
