Letter to the Congregation: Uvalde Massacre

Dear Faithful People of Christ the King Evangelical Lutheran Church:

The massacre of children and teachers in Uvalde yesterday cannot be ignored by Christ’s Church and will not be ignored by us at Christ the King Church either. I write to invite you to take the following actions this weekend. Below, please find resources for personal and communal actions.

First, weep with those who weep.

Second, pray.

Third, attend an Interfaith Rally (yes, it’s a protest) on Friday, May 27, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston where the National Rifle Association is holding its annual meeting. We’re making attending this rally as easy as we are able.

Letter to the Congregation: Pentecost Weekend

Dear faithful people of Christ the King Evangelical Lutheran Church:

Pentecost is on June 5, 2022, and it is a long-standing Christ the King Church tradition to read the story of Pentecost, (Acts 2 attached) “in various tongues.” With this letter, I am inviting all those who read or speak a language besides English to help us continue this tradition. You can read at either the 8:30 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. service. If you have never thought of sharing your gift with languages in this way or are concerned about speaking publicly in front of the congregation, please be assured that you will not be in front of the congregation but will stand and read from your seat; and at least a dozen other people will be standing with you and speaking in other languages at the same time. This enables everyone who wishes to participate to comfortably participate.
