    March 3 – Making Sense of the Cross, Chapter 3

    Theme: Ransom and Victory, led by Pastor Anita

    The theory or model of atonement that was popular for

    much of the first thousand years in Christian history

    emphasizes the titanic struggle between God and Satan

    for the fate of humanity, a struggle that culminates in

    God’s triumph through the cross and resurrection of

    Jesus.

    March 10 – Making Sense of the Cross, Chapter 4

    Theme: Substitution, Satisfaction, and Sacrifice, led by

    Scott Tunseth.

    A second theory of atonement, which has been popular

    for much of the last thousand years, revolves around the

    idea that Jesus paid for, or was punished for, the debt of

    honor and justice that humanity owes God because of

    sin.

    March 17 – Making Sense of the Cross, Chapter 5

    Theme: Example and Encouragement, led by Pastor

    John.

    The third theory of atonement that we will examine

    together strongly rejects any notion of God needing a

    blood sacrifice in order to forgive sin and instead

    emphasizes the cross as a powerful example of God’s

    great love for us, an example that both teaches and

    inspires us to love others.

    March 24 – Making Sense of the Cross, Chapter 6

    Theme: Event and Experience, led by Scott Tunseth.

    Atonement, like the cross and resurrection, isn’t an idea

    that we can comprehend and master, but an experience

    of the grace of God that leads us through death to new

    life.

    Feasting on the Word

    This lectionary-based study will continue to be led by

    Message from Pastor Anita Beste

    Every month, Prince of Peace

    gives benevolence donations

    to various organizations. In

    the month of March, we will

    give financial support to:

    ELCA

    Habitat for Humanity

    Global Mission Institute

    Thank you for your support

    and partnership in these

    ministries!

    The ELCA and the Saint Paul Area Synod encourage sabbatical

    times for pastors, and Prince of Peace is one of many churches

    that follow that practice. So I am grateful to Prince of Peace for

    the council’s approval in February of a sabbatical time for me this

    summer from June 10 – September 2. There is no additional cost to Prince of

    Peace as staff and church committees will prepare ahead of time and attend to

    the ongoing ministry. Pastor Klawiter will cover pastoral duties during this

    time (including arranging for coverage for some time he will take off in July;

    see his announcement on page 6.)

    The following is a helpful understanding of sabbaticals from a longer article in

    Lutheran Partners magazine:

    The concept of sabbatical is grounded on the biblical idea of Sabbath

    rest. The example of Jesus, who frequently sought out a quiet place where

    he could meditate and pray, away from the constant demands of the

    crowds, is a strong model for a sabbatical. A sabbatical creates space for

    creativity, rest, and renewal and serves as a way for a congregation to

    express how much it values the minister.

    Sabbaticals offer ministers a chance to step away from the long hours

    of work, to find healing and rest, and then to return to their place of call

    equipped and refreshed to inaugurate new ways of being in ministry.

    Positive change happens because sabbaticals get ministers out from under

    the day-to-day pressures of their work. They can reflect on what they are

    doing, why they are doing ministry in certain ways, and how they might

    do the various pieces of ministry better. They have time to study in

    greater depth a subject of interest to them, and they discover what other

    pastors and churches are doing.

    Sabbaticals are as different from each other as are the unique

    individuals who take them. But some common elements found in many

    sabbatical plans include: Cross-cultural experiences and travel;

    Encountering Christians in other settings through visits or volunteer

    activities; Studying a topic of interest which may take the form of a

    continuing education course, extensive reading, program planning, or

    writing for publication; Self-discovery through a spiritual retreat or

    psychotherapy; Visiting other ministry sites and worship with other

    congregations; Visiting family members, mentors, or former colleagues;

    Resting, relaxing, and engaging in planned recreation; Keeping a journal.

    Two main themes for me during my sabbatical time will be: 1) Getting to know

    the Prince of Peace neighborhood and neighbors better. This was inspired
