Mount Olive is a confessional Lutheran congregation of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod.  We are not ashamed of our Lutheran faith, which centers all that we believe and do squarely on Christ and Him crucified for us.  Because the LORD is present for us in Word and Sacrament, we conduct worship reverently, using the best liturgical traditions of the historic Christian Church which boldly proclaim this Gospel faith.  Our congregation regularly uses services, rites and hymns from the Lutheran Service Book.  At Mount Olive, we preach Law and Gospel, we teach the Bible, and we serve our neighbor locally, regionally, and around the world.


Ponder His Passion

     “Jesus, I will ponder now on Your holy passion.”  This opening line from the well-known Lenten hymn captures what the season of Lent is all about.  To ponder means to consider something deeply and thoroughly.  It is synonymous with meditation.  Do we do much pondering these days?  In this information age that we live in, we are faced with a barrage data which is constantly fed to us from multiple venues.  Faced with such an information overload, we rarely have time to slow down and think deeply on anything.  We need time to ponder.

     From ancient times Lent has been a time set aside to ponder the most important subject of all: the passion of our Lord Jesus Christ.  This is meditation not in the worldly sense, but in a Biblical sense which directs us to think deeply on His Word and consider our own unworthiness and need for a savior.  We are exhorted to think deeply on all that Christ has done for us and for our salvation.  This Lent we will be taking a closer look at the passion of our Lord as drawn from the four Gospels and pondering the hope we have in Christ.  Take time out from the busyness of this world, and join us as we ponder His passion.
