"Pastor’s Comment - “God’s Faithfulness & Our Christmas Tree”

Pastor’s Comment -

God’s Faithfulness & Our Christmas Tree

"The Christmas Tree - some are small, some are large, some are real, some are imitation, some are glass, some are wood; there are Christmas Trees of every shape and size, material, and color. The majority of us have at least one, or two, or three, or more? of them in and outside of our homes. And, we are always anxious to decorate them; many with treasured ornaments, passed down through the years, and many with new decorations and themes. As Christians, the Christmas tree is a symbol of God’s faithfulness to us. You see, because the evergreen remains green and lifelike when everything else appears to have died, or ended their green and blooming for the cold season, it has become that symbol of the constant and ongoing faithfulness of our Lord. He can be trusted to keep his word; he will not fail us or forsake us. He proved that by faithfully keeping his promise to send the world a Savior, who died for our sins and arose from the grave for our salvation and eternal life with Him. As you decorate your special tree, this Christmas season, may you be reminded of God’s faithfulness to you. And, when the
season becomes too hectic and maybe a little too frenzied..sit down and look at your Christmas tree and remember God’s faithfulness. “Praise the Lord, all you nations; extol him, all you peoples. For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever.” (Psalm 117) A Very Merry & Blessed Christmas to All!"

Pastor's Comments - "Thank You, Lord!"

"Pastor’s Comment - “Thank You, Lord!”

As this Thanksgiving grows near, let’s remember to thank God, not only for all the personal blessings we have received, but to thank God for the many blessings of our country. Now I know you probably think, “Are you kidding?” Our country is in the tank. The recession is still here- jobs and homes are still being lost by the thousands, the government wants to take over more and more control of our lives (and our pocketbooks), the culture wars are going badly, marriages and families are in tatters, crime seems to be on the rampage, more and more churches are closing, our resources are depleting.... the list goes on and on. But what about being thankful for the Christian faith that this country was founded upon? Do Americans still hold this faith or have they forgotten? If you attend a church service or activity without fear of harassment, arrest, torture, or death, than you are more blessed than almost 3 billion people in the world. Religious freedom is nothing to be taken for granted. Thank you, Lord! In our country we have electricity and running water 24/7. Air conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter. We can go into a grocery store of our choice and see more food than Darfur has seen in the last year! And that computer you turn on and access? Not in many other countries. We can travel between countries without harassment, and have the right to free speech, to peacefully assemble and to protest what we don’t agree with. No, things aren’t perfect and yes, there are major concerns in our country. But overall, this is a great and awesome country! Pray for it and its people! Thank you, Lord."

"Pastor’s Comment - “Pumpkin Prayers”

"Pastor’s Comment - “Pumpkin Prayers”

After Liz Curtis Higgs wrote the popular children’s book "The Pumpkin Patch Parable", people began using her analogies to say a prayer while carving their Halloween pumpkins.

Thought you might find this helpful -

* While cutting off the top of the pumpkin, pray “Lord, open my mind so I can learn new things about you.” (Proverbs 1:7)

* While removing the seeds and pulp, pray, “Remove the things in my life that don’t please you. Forgive the wrong things I do, and help me forgive others. (Matthew 6:14-15)

* While making eyes, pray, “Open my eyes to see the beauty you’ve made in the world around me.” (Psalm 104:24)

* While making the nose, pray, “I’m sorry for the times I’ve turned up my nose at your many gifts. (James 1:17)

* While making the mouth, pray, “Let everything I say please you.” (Psalm 19:14)

* While lighting the candle, pray, “Lord, help me show your light to others through the things I do.” (Matthew 5:16)

After carving your pumpkins, display them as examples of how God’s love transforms us into new creations. (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Pastor's Comment - "Need a Day of Rest?"

"Pastor’s Comment-“Need a Day of Rest?”

In 1894, President Cleveland signed a bill into law designating the first Monday in September as “Labor Day”. Now, many years later, Labor Day is actually seen as the last long weekend of summer. And everyone who can, takes a “vacation” on the first Monday of September. The last hurrah! Friends and families gathering together for that last cookout, that last day at the beach, that last real day of ‘rest&relaxation’ before the hectic fall arrives. A day off from labor, however, was definitely not a new concept. Our Lord had instituted a day of rest, way before
1894. And, it wasn’t called Labor was called the Sabbath. (Exodus 20:8-10). Which meant, we are supposed to take a day off from everyday life once a week... not just once a year. And this is not just a day of rest, it is a day of worship, a day of prayer, a day of thanksgiving, and a day to reconnect with our Lord. Does this sound like your Sundays, or do your Sundays look like the rest of your days in the week... hectic and harried. As Sunday comes to an end, do you feel spiritually, emotionally and physically renewed and energized, ready
for a new week? Or, do you feel draggy and dreading Monday morning. May this Labor Day mark the day that we become more Sabbath-centered...ensuring that Sundays in our homes and lives are a true day of worship and rest, putting aside normal work activities and worldly
distractions. May our focus be on precious time spent with the Lord, our loved ones, and even just ourselves, as we observe each Sabbath Day."

Getting To Know One Another

Historic Trinity has numerous activities coming up........You may have noticed the upcoming events listed in the Messenger, in addition to the many church services and Bible studies. These events are designed for our members to get to know one another. With three church services, we tend to have “three churches”. The people at 8:15 am service do not know the people at the other services and vice versa. The more we meet each other at “other events” , the more we learn to care and listen to each other. The more we share, laugh, cry, and rejoice together, the stronger in the Lord we each become. So say - hi - to everyone."

Sports, plays, music, restaurants, etc. This is limited to members only of Historic Trinity. You must call in advance with a reservation for the
“Parents Night Out”. Parents also need to take time alone for each other if the marriage is to remain healthy."

"Jesus Power"

"Pastor’s Comment - “Jesus Power”

The crashes of thunder and the flashes of lightening in the sky during an summer evening thunderstorm are powerful, aren’t they? Sometimes they are so fierce, they make you ‘jump’ in your seat or bed! Think of it.... we have recently experienced fantastic firework displays, with the loud booms and awesome lights. But all of the power of those fireworks do not equal the power unleashed from just one thunderstorm. Just one bolt of lightning can put out the electrical power to a large area of homes and businesses. Just one thunderstorm can lead to flash flooding or the winds can cause a great deal of damage to our property. In Mark 4:35-41 the Bible tells the story of ‘Jesus Calms the Storm’. Jesus was exhausted and weak from preaching and teaching. The only place he could get away from the crowds to rest, was on a boat. So he and the disciples got on a boat and went out to sea– the Sea of Galilee. Now the Sea of Galilee was known for its nasty storms and sure enough a good one whipped up. Jesus was sound asleep and the disciples were doing everything they could to stay afloat, but it began to look hopeless. The disciples panicked and woke Jesus exclaiming, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown?” So Jesus stood up in the boat, and spoke in a commanding voice, “Be quiet! Be still!” Then the storm died down and it was completely calm! Wow! What power our Jesus has! The power to create the universe, the power to calm the storms, the power through his death on the cross and resurrection to save our souls and give us eternal life with Him. “Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor. We give you thanks, and praise your glorious name."

“Heavenly Fireworks?”

"Pastor’s Comment - “Heavenly Fireworks?”

Don’t we all just love fireworks! They light up the sky with beautiful colors and the sounds of ooo’s and aaa’s can be heard everywhere. An abundant amount of money, time and effort is spent in making the 4th of July fireworks, when we celebrate our freedom from the Kingdom of Great Britain and the beginning of our great country, the best ever. Yes, this is a great freedom, but it cannot compare to the abundant freedom we have been given in Christ. Through His death, burial and resurrection from the dead, we have been set free from our bondage of sin and are given eternal life with Him. “I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent." ( Luke 15:7) Wow! The celebration in heaven must be great! I’ll bet that if there are fireworks in heaven, they are truly the best! And, just think what they must be when you add God’s people living in repentance and faith? This 4th of July as we celebrate the birthday of our great country, let us remember to thank God, our Father, for our great earthly home and for our glorious heavenly home. And, enjoy the fireworks!"

Friday, June 25, 2010


The Rev. Dr. David Eberhard presents an article called “Dr. Eberhard Speaks Out”. He challenges us with his thoughts and experience as a leading churchman in America. While we may agree, or not agree, he shares with us what he has learned that works in the local parish. Over his forty years of experience in the ministry, and 24 years in the political arena, he has always tended to be ahead of the current curve and is always “pushing the envelope” to get us to expand our thinking.


Each week I hear of another Lutheran Church in the Metro Detroit area closing, or planning to close in the near further. Why ? one asks. Is it because the present congregation had become “a club”, and the last person should “turn out the lights”. Is it because they failed to see that they are surrounded by millions of people, that if they asked they could gain at least a few. Is it because the pastors is not working, he’s off to another conference - another meeting to study on how to be the church. Wake up, no conference, no consultant, no class is going to do the Lords work for you. When we hear that so many churches have only 40, 60, or maximum of 125 persons in worship on a Sunday. How many times can you call on 40 people, how many times can you email 40 people. I’ll bet your church facilities are closed most of the week, and open only for 2 hours on Sunday."

Get up - go open the doors. Have something - anything - to get people to come in the "side door", and some will come back in through the" front door". Then we have those that think we should not be concerned about how many people we have in church. We need to only have a "heart" for non-believer and the unchurched. Some have even gone as far as having Holy Communion "out there" in cell groups, not in the church building. Others feel we need to go out and start new churches in shopping centers, schools, storefront, anywhere other than a church building. They contend the church building is offensive, it is a stumbling block to reaching out. Come on now, get real. So now we have 30 people in a storefront, and we say hallelujah we have planted a new church. Unfortunately, too often that planning is not really to reach out, but rather to say at conventions - "we have opened 75 new churches". Yes, but we have closed 50 churches, and next year we will close 65 of those new plants and all along our denomination numbers dwindle even more.

Too often we are denying being "Lutherans" as if that is a bad word that drives people away. We provide "new" people with water drowned doctrines - don't want to hurt anybodies feelings. We are Lutherans, that stands for something, it is solid - and people today don't want quick fixes! You can't out "black" the fine Black Pastors, nor can you out "Baptist" the dynamic Baptist Preacher. Stop running in circles, stop throwing the baby out with the bath water, stop feeling sorry for yourself, stop thinking your congregation can not meet the needs of today's world, stop feeling that being Lutheran is old fashioned and outdated. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. While we may have, should have, various versions of worship services and assortment of hymns, we can do these effectively in a church setting. Storefronts, theater churches, etc. are temporary. When the "mission" funds run out, who is going to pay the bills? What happens to that poor pastor you stuck with an unstable future? It takes at least 300 members to make a parish self sufficient.

Fling wide open your church doors, be a caring people, become a powerful worshiping community, be a beacon of hope in an unstable world, administer the sacraments, and preaching the Word. People will come! We had all better get back to supporting, strengthening, and revitalizing the churches, older ones or new plants, before it is too late - and we will have no Lutheran presence in our Metro areas. Raise high the Cross of Jesus Christ - and move forward.

The Rev Dr David Eberhard

"Pastor’s Comment - “Don’t just fly....Soar!!”

"Pastor’s Comment - “Don’t just fly....Soar!!”

Graduation time is here with hopes for the future and memories of the past. One of the songs, many times heard at graduation ceremonies, is “On Eagles’ Wings” by Carl Strommen. “Like an eagle I will soar above the clouds. I will spread my wings and fly into the sun. Like an eagle I will race above the stars.” Now, eagles don’t fly like other birds. An eagle has an inborn ability to sense the motion of air currents and will wait patiently until the right breeze comes along. Yes, it flaps its wings, but mostly the eagle just lets go and is carried on the wings of the wind. And, unlike other birds who take refuge during storms, eagles love storms because it forces them higher and higher “above the clouds”. The eagle stands as an instrument of strength and freedom and is found as that description in the Bible. Through the symbol of eagles’ wings, God reminded the Israelites, when they became disgruntled, that, so far, He had carried them safely, encouraging them to continue to trust Him. “You yourselves have seen what I did to Egypt, and how I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself.” Exodus 19:4. This same verse applies to us. Look at what God has done in the past! He died for our sins and gave us redemption. He rose from the grave and gave us eternal life with Him. And He continually fills our lives with blessings and renews our strength to soar with Him upon ‘eagle’s wings’!"

Also, this is a great time to offer prayers of thanksgiving to our Lord, for the faithful and caring ministry of Dr. Eberhard and Beverly to the people of the Historic Trinity family. When they came to Historic Trinity 30 years ago, they came with a bold vision for this church, in downtown Detroit, with a membership of nearly 50. They have worked tirelessly and steadfastly, in service to our Lord and Savior, leading this congregation (which now exceeds 2,000members) forward into the 20th century, with dauntless faith. We pray that the Lord will continue to bless, strengthen and watch over them, as they, through the grace of God, have blessed us, the members and friends of Historic Trinity Lutheran Church."
