Dear St. Peter family,
Resources are available to you during this challenging time when we must, for the good of all, be separated from one another.  For your Midweek worship there is a liturgy that includes hymns, readings and prayers.  An audio file is provided containing the readings and my message.  I’ve also provided “Holden Evening Prayer” produced by Immanuel Lutheran Church, Valparaiso, Indiana for use by those of you who’ve grown to love Holden.  If you’ve never heard of this liturgy, I encourage you to listen and enjoy.  These same kinds of resources will be offered for Sunday worship in your home as well.

Many other resources are available to aid you to remain steadfast in the word of God during this time of national crisis.  There is a link to Concordia Publishing House, (CPH.org) that offers a variety of resources that are free for your use.  What a wonderful gift for us all!

Please check in on your neighbors to make sure they are doing OK.  Invite them to worship with you.  Give them a call.  Pray for one another.  This is likely going to be a long-extended time of being away from one another physically.  We are, however, the Body of Christ!  Christ our Lord is in the midst of us and unites us in Himself.  Stay firm in faith, ever hopeful for an inevitable and happy reunion!  The Peace of Christ be with you.

Ascension Day Devotion

Read this first: Acts 1:1–11

Uprising

“You saw Jesus taken away from you into heaven. He will come back in the same way you saw him go” (Acts 1:11b).

Jesus was no stranger to uprisings. He witnessed the very first and most damaging uprising in His story. History too. You know how that turned out.

Religious and political leaders of Jesus’ time accused Him of attempting an uprising. You know how that turned out too.

He didn’t settle for the uprising on Good Friday when He suffered and died to pay the price of our sins, nor for the uprising He caused as He descended into hell, demonstrating His power over death and the devil. He didn’t settle for the uprising on Easter when the day dawned looking like so many other Sundays—a most surprising uprising, even for His little band of followers.

Then came His ascension into heaven. His rising up into the heavens left His disciples in charge of future uprisings. You know how that turned out.

Now here we are His disciples in 2020, with no clear vision of what we will encounter as we proclaim and teach His revolutionary Word. But we do know the King of uprisings will never let the Gospel fail. And now we gaze up into the heavens, waiting for the final uprising.

You know for sure how that will turn out.

Come, Lord Jesus.
