I have a confession to make. There are a number of things people of faith say to others that drive me insane. Now, I know that these things are often said with every intent of caring and showing compassion. I also know they are said because we are not sure what else to say. (A word of advice – a listening ear is always a better – and safer – than moving lips). I came across this blog which summed up my list pretty well. You may find it instructive, challenging, even a little annoying. It is a good exercise in thinking through our faith and avoiding superstition. Any other things Christians say that bother you or trouble you? – Pastor Tim
The next time you find yourself wondering whether “Lutherans” make any difference or whether support of the ELCA or its various colleges, schools, and ministries make a difference, think about “Saint Frosty.” Along with John Gagliardi of St. John’s in Collegeville, MN (two of college footballs best coaches ever) Frosty brought humanity, fun, and faith to the field. Read about him and give thanks for his witness at his death.
