God’s freely given gift of grace in Christ has set us free! But free from what and for what? If we need to do nothing to earn our salvation, what does life look like? Is it as simple as loving our neighbor every day? What about when that seemingly simply answer becomes a sticky wicket? Looking to the Gospels and then to Paul’s letters, Dr. Sarah Henrich, Professor Emeritus of New Testament, Luther Seminary will help us explore these questions and discover for ourselves what it means to be set free, and how in that freedom and as part of God’s people we learn to live God’s love.

Do you wake up excited to be alive and fully enjoying your retirement years? If not, it’s time to embrace this "third chapter" of life as an exciting new "life in the grace lane," a time of vitality and purpose filled with the grace of fewer obligations, more leisure, and greater choice coupled with the wisdom and experience of your years. Accepting this next chapter as a positive stage on life’s journey filled with God’s enormous gifts of grace and purpose, is what truly can make the retirement years the "best" years of our lives. Join Pastor Stephen Cornils as together we explore the plans God has for your "life in the grace lane"! Using a new format and direction, class will begin with refreshments, coffee, and juice followed by Pastor’s presentation. We then will break for small group discussion before reconvening as a large group for final remarks. Please come—and bring friends. All are welcome!

An Invisible Thread: The True Story of an 11-Year-Old Panhandler, a Busy Sales Executive, and an Unlikely Meeting with Destiny by Laura Schroff. One rainy afternoon, busy sales executive Laura Schroff was approached by a young panhandler asking for money because he was hungry. At first, she ignored him and kept walking. Suddenly, however, she stopped, then turned back. He had said he was hungry. And so she took him to lunch at McDonald’s—a lunch that led to a remarkable friendship that has spanned more than 30 years and changed both their lives in ways they never could have imagined. This heartwarming story of how two people brought grace and hope into each other’s lives offers all of us a measure of that same grace and hope. Carol Throntveit facilitates.
