Faith Ministry Stories

Would you open up your home?

Posted by Pastor John Klawiter on

Merry Christmas and Happy Holy-days to all my neighbors who celebrate during these holy times! In my Christian tradition, Christmas is an opportunity to hear an old story. A writer named Luke shares that “Mary gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him...

Advent & Christmas Greetings

Posted on

Christmas is one of those seasons when memory and hope collide. How well I remember memorizing and speaking the angel’s prayer at the close of the church Christmas program when I was in eighth grade. It was my first time leading a congregation in worship. Dressed in a costume made from a...

I’m not quite sure how to describe my afternoon on Tuesday.  I experienced something new to me ... chronic homelessness. I’ve traveled to Haiti to see people live in dwellings we in the US wouldn’t consider a home.. and in Tanzania mud and stick huts were the normal. But...

Posted by Pastor John Klawiter on

The Lutheran blood that courses through my veins runs deep. My grandfather, also John Klawiter, was a teacher at a Missouri Synod Lutheran School and still lives in the house that he and Grandma Barbara built in the 1950’s in Alhambra, a suburb of Los Angeles.  Grandpa John loves...
