Sending Offerings through Bill Pay ~ Several members of St. John’s have asked if there is a way for them to make their weekly offerings automatically either online or by an automatic bank transaction.  St. John’s is investigating our online giving options, but are not yet ready to receive online gifts.  For the time being, we suggest that our members consider using your bank’s online Bill Pay service to make weekly or monthly gifts to St. John’s.  If you have questions about using Bill Pay to make donations, please contact Financial Secretary Mike Thom at 507-217-7671.

The Anxiety Cure

“Rejoice in the Lord always.  I will say it again: Rejoice!  Let your gentleness be evident to all.  The Lord is near.  Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”  (Philippians 4:4-7)

 

“Is anxiety a sin?”  A friend from Wisconsin called me a few weeks ago.  He wanted to know if anxiety was sinful.  I read between that lines understanding that he or someone in his family was anxious.  Who can blame him, right? After all there’s a lot to be anxious about right now, isn’t there? We can be anxious about our health. “Will I contract COVID-19? And if I do...

Jesus Will Lead Justice to Victory

We are now in the Easter season.  We have gone beyond Golgotha and the blood-stained cross to the empty tomb. We continue to celebrate the Resurrection.  But even as we look to new life and the joys of Easter, we still look back.  We have to.  We still need to see the three crosses planted on the Place of the Skull.

He gave his own life for it.  Perfect God became a sinner for us to take away our sin.  Immortal God died in our place so that by death he might conquer death for us.  For so it had to be.  Jesus had to satisfy God’s perfect justice by becoming a perfect sacrifice for all sinners for all time...

Death is Swallowed Up!

"Man, what a big mouth!" That phrase, "big mouth" (which I'm sure has been used to describe me once or twice before), can mean several things. Usually it's a reference to one who talks too much or especially to one who makes big boasts. But "big mouth" is also a reference to a variety of fish, like the bigmouth goby and the bigmouth buffalo fish, who, as their names imply, have big mouths and swallow their prey whole. This month, as we celebrate the victory that Jesus won for us on Easter, we rejoice that that Easter has a big mouth! It swallows its prey—Death—whole, in one big gulp. Here’s Paul's description of this big-mouthed Easter as in 1 Corinthians 15:54-57...
