A message from Pastor Bob:

God has Given us the Holy Spirit, who Fills our Hearts with God’s Love.
 

1 By faith we have been made acceptable to God. And now, because of our Lord Jesus Christ,
we live at peace with God. 2 Christ has also introduced us to God’s undeserved kindness on
which we take our stand. So we are happy, as we look forward to sharing in the glory of God. 3
But that’s not all! We gladly suffer because we know that suffering helps us to endure. 4 And
endurance builds character, which gives us a hope 5 that will never disappoint us. All of this
happens because God has given us the Holy Spirit, who fills our hearts with his love. ~ Romans
5:1-5
I am a bit unsure about sharing the passage above. Our time in lock-down has been tough. And
with all due respect, I’ve had just about enough suffering. My endurance is in good shape, my
character seems acceptable, and I hope my hope is sufficient for the days ahead. But my
lethargic attitude doesn’t diminish the fact that…


God has given us the Holy Spirit, who fills our hearts with his love.
 

The Spirit of God remains faithful to and engaged with me, with you, and with our Peace
Lutheran family. Whatever you wish to call the work which lies ahead of us – regroup, start over,
resume business as usual, reimagine our future, get back in the saddle – the good news is
we’re still here. The people and ministry of Peace are ready to move forward, and it’s time to
renew an alert expectancy of God’s next step for us.
The length of the pandemic period seems to have changed everything, so reexamining and
reviving even the basics is critical. For example:
  • Committees and small groups can meet in our building.
  • We need ushers, greeters, readers, and sound technicians for worship. By the way, we have had visitors at worship during the pandemic, proving we always need ushers and greeters!
  • We would appreciate vocal and instrumental soloists and small groups willing to perform at worship.
  • We would appreciate one or two individuals who would be willing to attend monthly MAMC meetings (Menomonie Area Ministerial Coalition).
  • FYI – Monthly Worship with Holy Communion has resumed at The Neighbors, but there is no need for volunteers as the procedures have changed.
What else needs to be brought back to life at Peace? Anything new on your mind concerning
our ministries? These questions are asked knowing that…


God has given us the Holy Spirit, who fills our hearts with his love.
 

Friends, our recent suffering has been prolific and exhausting. Yet, by the Grace of God, we
have endured. Our character is almost muscular, and our hope is often the only thing that gets
us out of bed in the morning. Plus, we are not in this alone. We need to discard the brashness of
American Individualism (which is a myth anyway!) and see our church family as a great source
of love and light. God’s Spirit enables us to (as The Message Bible interprets Roman 5:3)
continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with trouble!
Our future remains in the hands of our Mighty God. Our hearts overflow with Spirit-inspired love.
So let us gather, thank God, and renew an alert expectancy of God’s next step for us. Even
wearing masks or sitting a few feet apart, we can move forward because God has given us the
Holy Spirit, who fills our hearts with his love.
 
Peace,
Pastor Bob Friese
