The Big Question

Welcome to our new blog for Lutheran Church of the Cross.  The goal of this blog is to encourage discussion around matters of faith, as well as putting faith into practice in our daily lives.

For the first weeks of this Blog, I am connecting it with the summer sermon series at Lutheran Church of the Cross – Big Questions of Faith.  Over the course of the new few weeks, we will explore a variety of questions that people have about faith.  Some possible questions include:

  • What will heaven be like?
  • What is the Holy Spirit and how does a person receive it?
  • What does a person NEED to be saved by God?
  • Why are there so many different denominations and religious traditions, and along with that, how do we know which one is the true one?

These are just some of the potential questions we will cover.  Do you have a question that you would like us to possibly cover this summer?  Respond to this post and add your own ideas.  There are only a few basic ground rules for this discussion space:

  • Practice Christian love and respect to all who post,
  • There are no “Bad” questions to ask,
  • Speak for yourself as you respond to those who post, using “I” to describe what you think or believe
  • Avoid making assumptions or over-generalizations about how groups of people think or feel
  • Remember that this is a thread about our faith in Jesus Christ, not primarily a political forum, though faith does intersect with matters that may be political.
The featured Big Questions will be discussed during Sunday worship, during the Wednesday night dinner discussions, and on this blog.  Join the discussion as we wrestle with the Big Questions of Faith.

    Great addition to the website, Pastor. Between the Sunday live stream of service, the prayer chain, and this addition to the Blog it should make being out of town for a bit seen like less of a separation from our LCC family. Thank you!

    This is one more way we can connect and grow. This summer I will be away for several weeks and I look forward to tapping into this new asset. Thank you to our church family for all the work that goes into this.

    I have a persistent question that I deal with. How do we know when God is speaking to us? In Genesis 6, Noah clearly understood that God was speaking directly to him. In my daily life, I’m guided to do things that I completely do not understand, I don’t hear a big booming voice telling me what to do, so how can I tell where that direction is coming from?

    I guess living in Shore Acres, at four feet above sea level, for half a century gives me a connection to Noah. 🙂

    I concur, this is a great addition to the website. The more we share, the more we grow and spread the Word.

    A great way to share, connect, and serve – even 1200 miles away!
