Touching Jesus

Blessings and curses abound on the sixth Sunday after Epiphany. We would do well to listen closely to whom the “blessed ares” and the “woe tos” are directed and to find our place in the crowd among those who desire to touch Jesus. The risen Christ stands among us in the mystery of the holy supper with an invitation to live in him and the power to heal us all.

February 17: Briarpatch In Madison, over 300 youth are homeless at any one time. Briarpatch is an agency that serves over 3000 of them annually. On January 20th, Tyler Schueffner, program coordinator for Briarpatch’s street outreach program, will join us to talk about the transitional living program (Briarpatch TLP) that provides housing for 18-22 year olds experiencing homelessness or housing instability.
February 24: Racial Justice Coalition- The New MOSES/Wisdom Initiative to cut down on “mass supervision,” or putting people on parole and probation unnecessarily using sometimes draconian rules and arbitrary enforcement to disrupt people’s lives, jobs, families, and homes. Columbia University Justice Lab has just released a report titled “Mass Supervision in Wisconsin.” It deals with things like Revocations, Extended Supervision, Monitoring, etc. It shows that Wisconsin is an outlier — we have more people on Supervision for longer times, more revocations, and more expensive, damaging life disruptions than most states. If you would like to see the report before the session, you can access it here:

On Monday, February 25, at 6:30 pm, Pastor Mae Jean will hold a forum for the Lake Edge Lutheran community to talk about how we can best assist our brothers and sisters in need through the dispersion of Pastors’ Emergency Funds. This will be time to explore past and present practices and our best hopes for the future. While the decision for the specific use of the funds is , by virtue of the name, the pastor’s discretion, the monies come from the people of Lake Edge. So we should talk. If you are able and so inclined, please come join the conversation.
