A Welcoming Letter From Pastor Bob Johnson
"In the Light Shall We See Light"
That is how the ancient Psalmist prayed when he wrote of trust in God's promises to save His people from death and destruction.
For God's people today, these words take on new meaning because of Christ Jesus. All of God's promises are fulfilled for us in the Light of Christ.
As our Lord Himself testified,
"I am the Light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the light of life." (John 8:12)
Christ, who is the Light of the world, calls, gathers and enlightens
His people for mutual service as a holy nation, a peculiar people, a royal priesthood to strengthen, to support, to comfort one another as members of the Body of Christ.
At Norwood Park Lutheran Church, therefore, we intend to take seriously God's claim upon us to be His Body in the world.
ln our midst you will not find perfect people.
ln our midst you will find,
But upon all of us has Christ's Light shined; in the Cross of Christ we become truly what God intends us be - His Body - rejoicing, suffering, celebrating His claim upon us.
We extend a warm invitation to you, if you have no church home, to join our congregational presence.
