From A Recent  Hope Newsletter:

Pastor Jack’s Letter to the People of Hope
A book that my wife Ruth and I have in our home is entitled “Seasons of a Lifetime.” The author is Gerhard Frost, a former professor at Luther Seminary in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Ruth discovered a poem from that book that is perfect for this time of year. It is titled “Home.”

Home is where you are even when you’re not; where you unbutton whatever is pinching you, loosen whatever is choking you, set down whatever is breaking you, and tell whatever is bothering you.

Home is where someone is expecting you, where your chair, your plate, your bed are always kept for you, where a memory, a plan, a dream, a laugh or a tear is freely shared with you.

Home is where you let up and let down, where your stop hiding and let yourself be found, where you quit being someone else and are just your needy old self.

Isn’t that a wonderful way of looking at Hope Lutheran Church? It is our home! Many of us have had the joy of traveling this summer, but now we begin another year of ministry. Some congregations call it “Rally Time,” but I think it is more fitting to call it “Homecoming”!
September 1 marks the beginning of Ruth’s and my fourth year at Hope. We are so thankful that it is “home” for us!
Peace, love and HOPE,
Pastor Jack
