St. Paul's Lutheran Church
We are a church that is always being made new, yet deeply rooted in Scripture, Lutheran theology and Lutheran confessions. We are also rooted in the vibrant, diverse communities and rich history of Mobile. It’s through these roots that the Holy Spirit guides and nourishes us so that we can be a church that is both resilient and always new.

From the desk of the pastor:
Text: Matthew 28:1-10
On resurrection morning, out of fear, the people whispered to each other, “Christ is Risen”. They whispered because they were afraid of being accused of being one of His followers. The text tells us that Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to the tomb where they found an angel of the Lord seated on the rolled-away stone. The angel tells them that “He is not here; for He is risen, as He said.”
In last week’s lesson, Jesus tells His disciples to meet Him in Galilee. Jesus always keeps His promise. Jesus never fails. On the way to tell the story Jesus meets the women, saying, “ Rejoice… tell my disciples to meet me in Galilee.” The women did not doubt, but carried Jesus’ message and we as believers are called to do the same.
Let us rejoice on the morning of resurrection, for He lives. No grave could contain Him. No lie or bribe could cast doubt on His promise. Many did not believe he rose from the grave. Nonetheless, there is an empty tomb. Our Lord is seated at the right hand of God making intercession for us. Like many people in Jesus’ time, many in our time would rather believe a lie instead of the truth. People, we are not afraid. The enemy can feel free to accuse us of being followers of Christ--of that we are guilty.
Brothers and sisters in Christ, we are now locked in a curfew from 10 pm until 5:00 am every day. We are locked in but not locked out of our relationship with Him. We are living witnesses of the Gospel: He rose early in the morning and the tomb was found empty. Therefore, we can say with certainty, “Christ is Risen.” “ He is Risen indeed; Hallelujah!” Call someone Easter morning and share the resurrection story.
