Today is January 4th and I am starting out on a new venture–I’m writing a blog. I have to admit I’m probably the least technologically sophisticated person in the blogosphere (see–I knew that phrase)  But I do think there are things I would like to say outside of my normal venues of sermons and newsletter articles.

For this first message I’ll be content to tell you who I am.  My name is Terry Culler and I am the pastor of St. Paul’s Free Lutheran Church in Leitersburg, MD.  We’re a small rural congregation affiliated with the Association of Free Lutheran Congregations (see aflc.org for more on them).  We have a website of our own–LeitersburgLutheran.org.

What I hope to share with you as we travel through the mysteries of the internet is the hope of life, joy and peace which can only be found in Jesus Christ.  This world is full of trials, troubles and irritants.  But when we turn our eyes toward Jesus, we see how this will all change for us and how we will be the people we were always meant to be.  That’s good news for a bad news world.
