Faithful Conversations

Welcome to “Faithful Conversations!” My name is Paul Rykken and I am among those who lead adult studies at Evangelical Lutheran Church in Black River Falls, Wisconsin. And, yes, I am an “Old Lutheran,” who grapples with the challenge of living the Christian faith day to day. While I will contribute to and monitor the weekly blog, our intention is to include others as well.

The ELCA follows the Revised Common Lectionary for both its daily and Sunday reading plan. “Faithful Conversations” is a weekly reflection on the Lectionary readings for the upcoming Sunday (Year A 2022-23). I will normally focus on the Gospel reading, but not exclusively. I encourage you to read all four readings for each Sunday as part of the process. Our goal with this blog is to inspire ongoing engagement in God’s word among our parishioners.

Soli Deo Gloria!
