Connecting with God: A Lutheran Sermon Series on the Means of Grace

New Summer Sermon Series: 
Connecting with God
People are yearning to connect with God in meaningful and deep ways.  Some people make pilgrimages as if God were far away.  Others try to connect with God through fasting or extreme meditation as if God exists on some other plane of reality.  God is not far away and he doesn’t exist only in some other plane of reality.  Connecting with God is as simple as reading the Bible, being baptized, and participating in the Lord’s Supper.  We connect with God through his means of grace.
