End of Life

One of the privlidges that I have as a pastor of a church is to be invited into life’s most precious moments.  I am there to celebrate at weddings, at births, baptism, first communion and baptisms.  I am invited to walk with people, to pray and support them during the harder times in life including surgery, sickness and death.

Recently we lost a dear member of St. Mark’s.  I have been walking with her the last several months as her health declined.  I saw God in her and in our conversations recently.  I am so amazed by people’s faith expecially during times of stress and hardship.  We all have our times of wondering and questioning God and how we interact with God.  But then there are times of great faith and I see that so many times when I work and walk with people.

Thanks be to God.

  1. That must feel like a sacramental moment, to walk alongside someone as they make the transition home. Glimmers of grace even in death, yes?

    God bless you in your ministry.

  2. It was a sacramental moment. I feel honored to be there with people during those times.

    Thanks for the comment and the prayers. I don’t care what anyone says, Lutherans in Iowa are alright 🙂
