Pastor's Perspective
We are in the midst of Easter, spring is breaking out before our eyes, pollen is in the air, renewal, resurrection can be experienced all around us, and summer is just around the “corner”. Reformation is also caught up in all this renewal and resurrection. Christ Mission Lutheran Church has joined us in worship, and they are bringing new life to the Annex as they move their ministries of outreach into the building. The ministries they bring are their Prison and Re-entry Ministries, their Children Ministries, and Summer Programs. As of this writing, we are still formulating what this all this means. 

The synod has asked the leadership of each church to map out how and what is to unfold. As our Council President, Jim Prater said, we started out dating, and now we are cohabitating. My hope is that we will be able to receive members of Christ Mission as members of Reformation to assure their voices are heard as we move forward with this glorious endeavor. All this renewal and movement reminds me of Abraham's call, leaving his old life behind, not knowing where he was going, but he followed the Lord’s lead. Or Jesus expressing to Nicodemus that when the Spirit moves, we do not know from where it comes or where it is goes, but by faith, we open our sails to see where it carries us. Come Holy Spirit, come.

Our community of Earlewood is experiencing renewal as well. We are participating in the Open Streets event happening on May 1st from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm. During that time River Drive will be shut down so that the whole Drive turns into a pedestrian walkway. We are hoping to reintroduce Reformation to the Earlewood community and beyond as Covid subsides. We are hoping to have games, popcorn, and other snacks while opening our doors to whoever would want to explore our facilities. 

Come join us as we celebrate our amazing renewals and resurrections at Reformation.
