Erickson Lutheran Church - Deacon's Message

Deacon Hildegard Vickers


Deacon Hildegard Vickers


Much is changing in the world, and many of the changes may cause us to fear.

We need a source of strength and hope and love, in the face of all that changes around us and in us. We need wisdom from of old. As the ancient Psalm writer says in Psalm 46,
1God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
2Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change,
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea
9The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter . . .
10Be still, and know that I am God! . . .

May we continue to grow in trust, may we continue to worship God who loves us, may we take seriously the call to be still and know that God is with us. And may we work for hope and love and justice and peace.

My call with Erickson Lutheran Church is now ΒΌ time. I am usually in Erickson on Tuesdays and/ or Fridays and lead worship once and sometimes twice a month (usually first or third Sundays). Pastor Jim leads worship on second and fourth Sundays.
