The President’s E-News

  • Sent Into the WorldMay 1, 2018, 8:17 am

    Dear Friends, Last month I was in St. Louis for the Council of President’s meeting and assignment of calls for vicarage and placement of candidates. It was a wonderful week of anticipation and joy for those receiving the calls. I also had the opportunity to connect with an old college friend who serves on the […]

  • Easter Greetings!March 29, 2018, 3:23 pm

    Dear Brothers and Sisters in Jesus, Today marks the beginning of that three day period beginning with Maundy Thursday through the Easter Vigil on Saturday, culminating with our celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus! It is a time marked by all kinds of activities and extra church services. I have found, over the years, I […]

  • Live in LoveFebruary 7, 2018, 11:50 am

    Dear Friends, Traveling through a local store the week after Christmas I was amazed to see that almost all of the Christmas merchandise was gone, only to be replaced by a plethora of pink and red hearts, and all things Valentine’s Day. What is amazing to me is the Valentine items in almost every department […]

  • Looking Into the New YearJanuary 1, 2018, 10:41 am

    Dear friends The Apostle Paul wrote, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” (2 Co 5:17). The same could be said about 2017 transforming into 2018! Happy New Year! The New Year brings a lot of exciting things for the Florida-Georgia District. […]

  • Incarnational Holiday LivingDecember 1, 2017, 10:48 am

    Dear Friends, I was almost 30 years old the first time I actually watched the holiday classic, “It’s a Wonderful Life.” I’m sure I saw it many times before, but it never really captured my attention, and as with many of the Christmas Classics in my younger years, I would quickly change the channel. That […]

  • Stories from the StormOctober 1, 2017, 12:32 pm

    Dear Friends, To read stories from your friends and colleagues, go to the FLGA District Facebook page.  We are posting the stories as they arrive. Samuel Taylor Coleridge penned the words, “Water, water everywhere, And all the boards did shrink; Water, water, everywhere, and not a drop to drink.” That’s how some people described the […]

  • Laboring for Jesus!September 1, 2017, 12:24 pm

    Dear Friends, In just a few days we will celebrate Labor Day. This was a day originally set aside to recognize and celebrate workers who built this nation. Tracing its origin to the labor movement in the late 19th century, in 1894 Labor Day became a federal holiday. Today it is primarily associated with the […]

  • God’s Grace at Work in UsAugust 1, 2017, 12:48 pm

    Dear Friends, Grace came with joy and excitement to her new community. She was happy to meet new people, and excited for the opportunity to grow in her faith. She had come from a congregation that embraced her with love, had nurtured her faith, and taught her about Jesus. Grace didn’t know that every church […]

  • A Time to CelebrateJuly 1, 2017, 3:27 pm

    Dear Friends, The Psalmist wrote, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people whom He has chosen as His heritage!” Ps. 33:12. What a blessing to know that despite our sinfulness, despite our weaknesses, our gracious God has still chosen us in Jesus, and claimed us as His very own. It isn’t […]

  • Summer WalksJune 1, 2017, 9:28 am

    Dear Friends, Things are supposed to slow down in the summer, aren’t they? While I don’t particularly see that happening, one of the things I do enjoy about the summer months is being able to get out and walk, especially in the cool 90 degree mornings. Walking has obvious health benefits. It also can have […]

  • Fixing Eyes on JesusMay 1, 2017, 9:35 am

    Dear Friends, As we continue our celebrations of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation the opportunities are all around us to proclaim the three solas which distinguish us as Lutheran Christians. 500 years later we continue to stand on Grace Alone, Faith Alone and God’s Word Alone! These are not only what guide us as […]

  • An Urgent Church or a Church of Urgency?April 1, 2017, 10:34 am

    Dear Friends, Somewhere I heard the statement, “The hope of the Church is in God’s people.” While I’m not sure I entirely agree with that, for our hope is in Jesus, the Risen One, there is some truth to this statement. Luther reminds us in his explanation to the third article of the Apostle’s Creed, […]
