  • Today’s Gospel is about lifting people up.

    Today’s Gospel is the 17th chapter of Matthew in which Jesus takes three Disciples, Peter, James and John, up on a mountain and there Moses and Elijah appeared and spoke with Jesus. When the voice of God came from the heavens, the Disciples became afraid but Jesus calmed them with his own words. Pastor Eric… Read more

  • New Musical “TENTS”

    This Sunday during both services at St. Mark we were joined by Jennifer Shaw, Randee Wilhelm and Karen Gheorghiu, who sang two original songs from the new musical written by our very own Terry Shaw, St. Mark Music Director. These women share the stage with five men to tell a “story of stories”. TENTS invites… Read more

  • How Do We Love Our Enemy?

    On the 7th Sunday after Epiphany, the Gospel of Matthew (5:38-48) gives us the familiar lesson from Jesus: “You have heard it said, love your neighbor and hate your enemy. But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” But how do we do that in the face of… Read more

  • Love and Logic Parenting.

    Love and Logic Parenting. A way of empowering and guiding children to make good choices. They learn the consequences of those choices that they make.

  • Please Pass The Salt!

    “You are the salt of the earth.” This is the pronouncement Jesus gave in the Gospel of Matthew (5:13), for the 5th Sunday after Epiphany. In his sermon based on this Gospel, Pastor Eric said that when salt is added to food, it disappears and creates a flavorful, savory taste. It gives depth to the recipe and draws out… Read more

  • Jesus Turned The World Upside Down

    In Sunday’s Gospel, Matthew 5: 1-12, Jesus names those who are blessed in the “reign of God”. He pronounces blessings on the outcasts, the sinners, the unwelcome and the spiritually poor, and he made their broken world a new world. These Beatitudes created a new reality for the crowds who followed him. When our world seems… Read more

  • A Message from ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton

    Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy. Yesterday, we heard these words in the Gospel reading from Matthew 5:1-12, the beginning of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. In the Beatitudes, Jesus lays out a vision for life in God’s realm, characterized by seeing those who are often most disregarded, including the meek, the mourning… Read more

  • Trellis – The Importance of Facility Maps

    During the past year the Church Infrastructure Committee (CIC) has been working with John Martin, our in-house architect, to create a complete, detailed map of our SMLC facility.  Why is a facility map important?  To paraphrase S. I. Hayakawa: If you have a map which corresponds fairly closely to the world that you find around… Read more
