65 Years and we still have great expectations for Clairemont Lutheran Church. This was a season of great expectations. Somewhere in the dark recesses of time after the earthly life of Jesus had ended, and some forty to seventy years before any writing of the Gospels was undertaken, the event occurred that created the Christian movement. The details were, and still are, sketchy. The followers of Jesus, first the women at the tomb but then others, began to tell each other: "The crucified one lives". As we dig deeper into their stories from the Gospel of John, we come to the probability that the moment that convinced them of this truth occurred in Galilee. It was the follower Simon that became the primary person from whom this truth first was spoken publicly. Because of that, Simon became known as the rock upon which the Christian faith rested, and so the nicknames Cephas, Peter, Rock, were attached to him. When he came to a place of great faith, he strengthened all the other followers. When he stopped denying he was reborn. When he ceased to doubt, he no longer sank into the waters of despair. When Jesus appeared first to Cephas it was on that very first Easter. Not much changed in Peter’s life. He headed back to what he knew, fishing for fish, not people. But on the shores of the sea of Galilee we see that Peter came to discover who it was the God made him to be. John 21 shows us that after a night of fishing, Peter finally realizes who is calling him at a fire on the beach. The amazing catch removes the scales from his eyes. But now comes the hard part, the transformation, the new life in our story. Remember Peter had denied he even knew Jesus; three times around a charcoal fire. The fire he ran from in tears and personal disgust. He must come to a charcoal fire and face the one whom he disappointed. Now he must be changed around a charcoal fire and be made new. He must face his fear of being whom God needs him to be and become a lover of Jesus. He must love Jesus more that these fish. He must love Jesus more than he ever imagined himself able to love. He will become more fully than ever before the one that God wants him to be. We are called to be a part of the continuing community that will “feed the sheep”. We are called to continue being Christ to this neighborhood. We are the lovers of Jesus. God’s people, who are able to love more than we ever imagined ourselves capable. We do not know when someone will need us to be Christ for them, but will be able. We do not know what God will have us do for the next 65 years, but we will be able. This is a season of great expectations.

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12 – 11:00 a.m. “For such a time as this – Lessons from Esther” The book of Esther is one of the latest writings of the Old Testament, perhaps written to inspire Jews who had been scattered in the diaspora. The narrative takes place in the court of the King of Persia, King Ahasuerus. Some think that it was written to explain and establish the Jewish festival of Purim. This three session study is brought to us by Kay Ward, a bishop of the Moravian Church who lives at Marquardt Manor, a Moravian retirement community in Watertown, Wisconsin. She continues to serve in ministry as a pastor to pastors and intercessor for the church. Before retiring from the staff of Moravian Theological Seminary in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, she served in team ministry with her husband, Aden. Kay was the first woman to be elected a bishop in the 541 years of the Moravian Church (the Unitas Fratrum). Session one: For such a time as this: Esther the queen—Voices in the king’s court Session one sets the scene for the story of Esther and her adopted father, Mortecai. Esther and Mortecai are Jews living under the rule of the Persian king, King Ahasuerus. When Esther becomes the queen, her faith is tested. The Jews, those who have been carried off from their homeland, struggle with living as strangers in a foreign land. In this session we will think about how our culture may challenge our faith Women of the ELCA Board Meeting: Tuesday, June 4 at 11:00 a.m.
