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.”

God's Word This Week     

SECOND SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
(29 May 2016)
 
1 Kings 8:22–24, 27–29, 41–43
Galatians 1:1–12
Luke 7:1–10

 
Faith Receives Good Gifts from God in the Flesh
 
There is only one source of life, revealed in only one saving Gospel. Corrupting that Gospel is serious business. Thus, St. Paul is amazed when the Galatians “are turning to a different gospel” (Gal. 1:6–7). He insists that he is not trying to “please man” but be a true “servant of Christ” as he calls down a curse on any “gospel contrary to the one you received” (Gal. 1:9–10), for that Gospel alone saves. It saves as it reveals God, whose kindness is manifested in Christ and who reckons among His people all who share the miraculous faith of the centurion in God’s Son: “Lord … I am not worthy to have you come under my roof … but say the word, and let my servant be healed” (Luke 7:1–10). For indeed, as Solomon admits, “the highest heaven cannot contain you; how much less this house that I have built!” (1 Kings 8:27). Nevertheless, in our Lord Jesus’ flesh and blood, He — whose mighty word is faithful to what He promises — comes to us even today in His Eucharist to dwell in us and bring to all who trust His promise the gift of everlasting life.
