January 2 is not only the day after New Year's Day, it's also the Ninth day of the Christmas season and, this year, the second Sunday after Christmas.  Today we look at the promises of our loving Father for every believer, regardless of what the new year brings.

At Christ the King, the Elves who take care of the church road sign put up this one a couple weeks ago:  "I'm also making a list and checking it twice - signed, God."  Although that's not a Bible verse, it's the theme of Pastor Cahill's Christmas Eve sermon this year.  And the sermon itself is a bit different - a series of intertwined readings and comments on this theme.

This fall we've been concentrating on values that we have here at Christ the King: so far, we've talked about Caring, Acceptance, and Family.  In December we turn to Joy as our worship emphasis.  


Last week we heard that "joy" in the Bible is the result of what happens when Jesus shows up on the scene - whether it's John the Baptist's joy that, even while he was in prison, he knew that his job as "best ma...

We're getting closer to the big day - Christmas!  The day the angels sang to the shepherds "To you is born this day in the city of David a Savior - Christ the Lord!"  It's supposed to be a "message of great joy ...

We hear and see that word "Joy" a lot during the season leading up to Christmas.  It seems to show up in bright lights, colorful decorations, upbeat songs and carols, and more.  But starting with this service and sermon, we...

As we conclude our month-long focus on Family as one of the things we value here at Christ the King, our readings from God's Word today look at the love that God the Father has for us who are His children, and two implications for our lives here together.

Last week's readings from God's Word acknowledged that even in the best of families there are still moments of tension, or seasons where the family seems to be more dysfunctional than otherwise.  But we also see that even in these moments and seasons the hand and will of our loving Heavenly Father is still guiding His children, and bringing about His long-term intention of love for us and for all people even if, in the shor...

In November we turn our attention to another of our values here at Christ the King:? Family. ?


When people think of how to describe the church (whether it's the church in general, or a local congregation), sometimes they say it's like a business, sometimes like an organization, sometimes like a social club.? But God's Word uses different images to describe the church: in St Paul's first letter to the Corinthians, he ...

On October 31 we Lutherans celebrate the festival of the Reformation.? It's the anniversary of the day in 1517 when Martin Luther posted on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, his "95 Theses" against the sale of indulgences.? It's also one of three days in the Church Year in which Lutherans commonly celebrate the Confirmation of young people (the other two are Palm Sunday and Pentecost).? In our 10...

So far this month, we've heard hints that, because Jesus' death and resurrection forgives all sins for all people, our value of "acceptance" at Christ the King means that (1) we acknowledge that each and every one of us has been accepted by God the Father as His child; that (2) in order to welcome and embrace others we might need to let go of some thoughts and habits that seem important to us; and that (3) all our &...
