In this emergency
During the weeks of the coronavirus restrictions, Sunday worship is conducted in a Zoom meeting. Members and friends on our mailing list receive Zoom invitations. If you would like to attend the service online, send your email address to email@example.com and you will be added to the invitation list.
Confirmation and faith formation meetings are held on Zoom.
During these days of isolation, members and friends of the congregation are encouraged to pray and meditate on scripture and to explore some of the spiritual treasures of our faith.
Keep in mind those who live alone. Telephone calls and emails between members and friends of the church keep connections strong and support those in need.
When routines change, patience and forbearance help us get along. If you are together for long periods of time in the house, take advantage of the time. Enjoy one another.
If you or someone you know needs assistance, members of Peace might be able to help. Pastor Johnson’s cell is 978/460-1118.
Last week Debbie Vogt arranged for a reporter to come to Peace to write a story about our anniversary. The reporter asked me what is distinctive about the Lutherans, among Protestant denominations. One answer is, the tradition of music-vocal, band and orchestral music-at our Lutheran colleges. We all know about the Division I sports at American universities. St Olaf and some of the other Lutheran colleges are sort of like Division I music schools. Apart from the conservatories which are dedicated to music (such as Berklee, New England Conservatory and Juilliard), the colleges of our Lutheran Church together are notable for music training and performance.The St. Olaf College Band begins its winter tour in the next few days. If you have friends or family in Cincinnati, Pittsburgh or Bowling Green, tell them that the band is coming to town. They could say hello to Matt who plays the bass trombone (in the center of the picture above).
