LUTHERAN CHURCH OF AMAZING GRACE

A LUTHERAN CHURCH THAT DEMONSTRATES JESUS' AMAZING LOVE, GRACE AND COMPASSION

MY LUTHERAN CHURCH HAS LET ME DOWN WHEN I NEEDED THE PASTORS AND CARE DIRECTOR THE MOST, AND SO GOD IS GIVING ME A VISION OF NEW LUTHERAN CHURCH OF GRACE THAT TEACHES AND DEMONSTRATES TO ITS CONGREGATION AND THE COMMUNITY AROUND THE CHURCH GOD OUR HEAVENLY FATHER'S GREAT LOVE AND COMPASSION AND CARE FOR ALL PEOPLE AND ABOUT JESUS' AMAZING GRACE FOR ALL OF HUMANITY.  MY CHURCH HAS GROWN TOO BIG TO SERVE THE NEEDS OF ITS CONGREGATION, AND IT SEEMS TO BE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT GROWING ITS POPULATION THAN IT IS ABOUT CARING FOR THE HURTING AND BROKEN MEMBERS OF ITS CONGREGATION. WE NEED LUTHERAN CHURCHES WHERE PASTORS VISIT THE HURTING AND BROKEN PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY AND DEMONSTRATE THEIR CARE AND COMPASSION FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE HURTING, LIKE I AM RIGHT NOW.   A CHURCH NEEDS TO REACH OUT TO PEOPLE WHO ARE HURTING AND RESPOND WITH LOVE AND COMPASSION WHEN PEOPLE REACH OUT TO THEM.   THE CHURCH I AM GOING TO RIGHT NOW HAS A LOT TO LEARN ABOUT DEMONSTRATING COMPASSION AND LOVE TO ITS MEMBERS, SO I WOULD LIKE TO CREATE A NEW LUTHERAN CHURCH WHOSE PRIORITY AND MISSION IS OPENING ITS ARMS AND HEARTS TO THE PEOPLE WHO ATTEND THE CHURCH AND THE PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF THE CHURCH WHO NEED TO LEARN ABOUT AND EXPERIENCE JESUS AND JESUS' GREAT LOVE AND COMPASSION FOR THEM.  WE CANNOT JUST TALK ABOUT GOD'S LOVE, WE HAVE TO DEMONSTRATE GOD OUR HEAVENLY FATHER'S LOVE AND COMPASSION FOR THE HURTING AND BROKEN PEOPLE OF THIS WORLD -- THE PEOPLE WHO NEED GOD OUR HEAVENLY FATHER'S LOVE THE MOST.  A CHURCH SHOULD NOT BE CONCERNED ABOUT HOW MANY PEOPLE ATTEND THE CHURCH OR HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE BAPTIZED IN THE CHURCH, BUT RATHER ABOUT HOW WELL THE CHURCH IS DOING IN SERVING AND MINISTERING TO THE PEOPLE WHO DO ATTEND THE CHURCH.  NUMBERS SHOULD NOT MATTER, RATHER PEOPLE AND THEIR LIVES AND THEIR WELL-BEING AND WELFARE SHOULD MATTER TO LUTHERAN CHURCHES.   IN JESUS' COMPASSIONATE, LOVING, HOLY AND GLORIOUS NAME.  LOVE ALWAYS, DIANE
