"You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lamp stand, and it gives light to all.." Matthew 5:14-15

So how do you know if you should become a leader in the ELCA?

Pastor Chuck has probably pondered that question many
times prior to his pastoral calling. Perhaps the ELCA has
provided the answer through two questions of its own:
Do you have a sense of wonder?
We need aware, caring, courageous people leading the
church in the 21st century. We need passionate, joy-filled
and adventurous people who want to bring healing and hope to other people in this broken world. Are you a natural leader?

Are you looking for a vocation that uses your gifts of creativity, requires an appreciation of spirituality and will be a way for you to give voice to God’s call? Are you interested in benefits such as quality worship, a chance to teach, partnering with colleagues, a caring community, variety, lifelong learning on the job, incredible opportunity to care for others
and a place to use your imagination? Chuck’s perception of these characteristics led to a definite “yes,” and thus he began to follow his dreams.

We are fortunate to celebrate the fulfillment of those dreams when Pastor Chuck will be ordained at Wheatland Evangelical Lutheran Church on October 28 at 3:00 p.m. It is appropriate that that particular Sunday also happens to be Reformation Sunday! Our hymns of praise that day will
celebrate the glories of our Christian faith, and the ordination of Pastor Charles Luther Miller.
