    JULY 2017

    Have you made your plans yet for the Fourth of July? Soon we again will celebrate another In- dependence Day. That’s the an- niversary date from 1776 when the Continental Congress adopt- ed the Declaration of Independ- ence. For many Americans, it’s a holiday--a day for parades, fami- ly picnics, outings, and a chance to relax. We recall how our na- tion came to this point in its his- tory and the freedoms we con- tinue to enjoy today--including that of worshiping in the tradi- tion we choose. Nearly 500 years ago (in 1520 to be exact) Martin Luther also was busy writing. His composition “The Freedom of a Christian” stands out as an important docu- ment too. Luther wrote “a Christian is a perfectly free lord of all, subject to none. A Chris- tian is a perfectly dutiful servant of all, subject to all.” Sounds

    contradictory, doesn’t it? But Luther went on to explain why that’s not true: “These two the- ses seem to contradict each oth- er. If, however, they should be found to fit together they would serve our purpose beautifully. Both are Paul's own statements, who says in 1st Cor. 9[:19], ‘For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a slave to all,’ and in Rom. 13[:8], ‘Owe no one anything, except to love one an- other.’ Through Jesus’ death on the cross and resurrection, we have the gift of grace, of forgiveness, of salvation because of what he did to make us righteous, or right with God. As the Psalmist wrote in Psalm 130 ‘If you, LORD, kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, so that we can, with reverence, serve you.’” Knowing God’s love, God’s for- giveness, the gift of grace allows us the opportunity to reach out to love and serve one another as Jesus commanded. May this holi- day be a joyous and healthy one for you and your family in our journey of faith. Interim Pastor Alan
