Meet Vicar Martin Dressler

 He is living at the vicarage residence at 324 Jackson, just south of the church.  His phone number is 519-0325. 

Martin was born and raised in North Carolina and attended Concordia College, Bronxville, New York.  While at Concordia, he spent one semester studying at Westfield House of Cambridge University, where he became fully convinced he wanted to study for the pastoral ministry.  After three years in New York, he enrolled at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, his first experience in the Midwest.

When he learned of his vicarage placement here, he wrote:  “I am very much looking forward to learning the culture of Indiana and its residents.  As a vicar, I will do my very best to learn and serve in the spirit of humility becoming a servant of the Lord.  I hope and pray that I will be able to meet your expectations.  Once again, thank you for this opportunity, and may God bless this upcoming year.”

The Word of the Gospel Bestows the Righteousness of Christ and Brings Forth Faith

The good Seed, which is "the Son of Man," Jesus Himself (Matt. 13:37), brings forth a harvest of faith and bears good fruits in "the sons of the kingdom" (Matt. 13:38). Whatever is sown apart from His Word is of the devil, who plants the weeds of unbelief and sin, even among the people of God. Thankfully, the Lord is patient and He does not uproot the weeds, lest the plants also be destroyed. He lets "both grow together until the harvest" (Matt. 13:30), while He continues to preach repentance and forgiveness of sins. Thus, He preserves His Church in righteousness, because He alone is "the King of Israel and his Redeemer" (Is. 44:6). Since all things are in His gracious care and keeping, "fear not, nor be afraid" (Is. 44:8). For "the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God" (Rom. 8:19), and in this hope we also wait with patience. Though we do not yet see it, "the Spirit helps us in our weakness" (Rom. 8:26) and, in truth, "the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us" (Rom. 8:18).
