Ministry in Context

Director's Word

In January's column, I wrote about how the story of Jesus’ incarnation shared in the Christmas Eve service reminded me to lift my eyes from focus on the church to notice God’s love for the world.

God so loved the world -- John's Gospel tells us -- that God became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth (1:14).

I am committed to trying to lift up ways God is at work loving the world, and to notice where our staff, students, and partner congregations are getting involved in what God is doing.

I hope you'll share your stories, and I've got one for you this month.

We’re shifting staffing structures at Luther, and as a result, the Rev. Tim Coltvet will work out of our office in his ministry overseeing contextual learning for MA students. He’s such an inspiration -- always seeming to connect to innovative ministries serving the world’s needs.

And so, in honor of Tim’s new place on our CL team, I’ll turn it over to Tim to share how he (and Yu Yi, a Chinese student at Luther he’s chosen to highlight) exemplify my hope for the church to ‘get involved with what God is doing.’
