  1. 1. Our Saviour’s Voice Our Saviour Lutheran Church, 120 S. Henry Street, Green Bay, Wisconsin, 54302 (920) 468-4065 DECEMBER 2014 GRIEF AND THE HOLIDAYS 1 By Pastor Dave “Good grief, Charlie Brown”, says Lucy. Is there such a thing as “Good grief”? Or can grief be good at all? Yes, it can. Grief is a complex emotion with many root causes, both real and imaginary. Grief is a form of suffering. For many, grief comes knocking around the holidays and it becomes an unwelcome visitor. For others who have had losses, they speed through the Holy Season like Hans Brinker on his shiny skates, racing past grief. People handle grief differently. Grief may be triggered by almost anything. For example, as Wilma is putting the ornaments on her Christmas tree she takes a favorite one out of the storage box… and there it is, the one her deceased husband gave her on their 25th wedding anniversary - Here come the blues! From this point on in the article, we are going to personify Grief. We will capitalize it, and name it for what it is. Grief may come knocking. You may ignore the knock or welcome this visitor. Grief may go away and return later. Grief may be a companion or a teacher. But we don't want to see Grief as an enemy. Unpleasant maybe, but not an enemy. Grief heals and teaches. If we don’t answer the door and let him in, he will sneak in another way to help us heal from our losses. Remember you are the expert on Grief. Professionals can share a lot of tips, but your story and your experience is unique. Those who study grief tell us there are several kinds of grief. One kind is “Anticipatory Grief”. That means feeling the grief before a loss occurs, or feeling sad while things are good, because we are already thinking about what we are going to lose before we lose it. Whew! Grief is sneaky! In real life, that might occur when a loved one is terminally ill and our emotions are preparing themselves for the loss ahead. There is “delayed grief”. For example, someone loses their sibling and experienced no painful grief at the time of the passing. But twenty years later they find themselves in a dark melancholy meadow. They don’t know why. Going alone to a quiet place, they examine their inner moods and thoughts. Slowly they realize, Grief has come to visit them. It has been with them for quite some time, but they did not recognize it for what it was. Now they want to write to their loved one or call them, but they cannot. They want to visit their grave or hold a possession in their hands. Can grief be ignored? Must we experience it? Cannot we just go around it? Cannot we just shift to the logical side of our thinker and it will go away? How can we avoid its pain? Really, we are not trying to avoid grief, but we may be trying to avoid a loss. Once we accept that loss, the grief will come and bring us healing. Can we have loss without grief? Yes, if what we lost was not loved. But if what we lost was (and is still) loved, grief will accompany it. I read a story once that might help us endure our grief. A long, long time ago a ship set sail for a far off land. Among the many passengers was a philosopher, of a variety that were known for being “in command of their emotions”. About half way to their destination, the ship encountered a great storm. The ship was in a sea of grief. The passengers were tumbled from side to side in the belly of the ship while the crew manned the deck. No one was exempt from the storm within their innards or from the vertigo in their heads. One of the crewmen said,
  2. 2. 2 “Hey, we have a philosopher on board, he should be able to laugh his way through this. Let’s check on him. They found the learned man in the bowels of the ship, just as sick as everyone else. They asked him why, was his philosophy failing him? “Not at all”, he replied, “It is working perfectly…I understand what is causing the disturbance that I am experiencing, and I am learning from the suffering.” A wise man! These holidays, or any days, should you feel down and out, despondent and dejection, depression and dismay, maybe it is grief! Grief for a loss in the past? Grief for an anticipated loss in the future? Know what is causing this. Learn from the sea sick philosopher… “I understand what is causing the disturbance that I am experiencing, and I am learning from the suffering.” But remember this, while grief may be an unpleasant healing experience, we have another emotion that is felt at the same time, and this one outweighs the other… “But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others who have no hope.” – 1 Thessalonians 4:13 “Good grief, Charlie Brown”, says Lucy. Is there such a thing as “Good grief”? Or can grief be good at all? Yes, it can. And His joy is even better! ANOTHER BREAKFAST…COMING UP! Our first two Sunday Café days in October and November were well received…and we’ll bring it back again on January 18, 2015. Improvements were made from the first to the second breakfast and a new change is coming for 2015. Please plan to come to the gym after service (we are serving from 8:45am-12pm) on Sunday, January 18 for a buffet with a variety of delicious breakfast favorites. There will be NO separate menu; buffet with adult and child pricing will be available.

One happens around the holidays and brings smaller denominations of many popular cards (see the list below) for gift giving. The other is when a big change is announced about the percentage earned for a specific card. KWIK TRIP – Kwik Trip Scrip has been providing a 10% profit to Our Saviour and many other non-profit organizations for a couple of years. As of January 1, that will reduce to 5%. All Kwik Trip Scrip purchased by December 31 will receive the 10% profit. Before this change occurs on January 1, we are encouraging Kwik Trip customers to order now and ‘stock up’ as much as possible. HOLIDAY DENOMINATIONS – The following SCRIP are available to order WHILE SUPPLIES LAST… Amazon - $10 Applebee’s - $10 Barnes & Noble - $5 CVS Pharmacy - $10 Kwik Trip - $10 Panera Bread - $5 Pizza Hut - $5 Starbucks - $5 Target - $10 WalMart - $10 SCRIP SCHEDULE CHANGE – The church office will be manned by volunteers while Michelle, the church secretary, takes a vacation from December 24 thru January 4. On normal business days during this time, SCRIP will not be available for purchase or pickup. SCRIP will be sold and special orders can be picked up at the Welcome Center on the Sundays within this time frame. Please plan accordingly. GRAND CENTRAL STATION – This business has recently been added to our SCRIP program. Cards will be available in $50 denominations and will provide a 10% profit. Look for these gas stations/ convenience stores on your route to work or school, and in your neighborhood and then make Grand Central Station the newest part of your weekly SCRIP order. 3

Three churches in the South Wisconsin District put on the retreat. The theme for this year’s retreat is, “The Samson Syndrome.” Pastor Atteberry points out twelve tendencies that Samson had in his life that led to his spiritual downfall. Rather than being a man of God, Samson became a selfish shallow playboy who squandered away his talents and his life. Pastor Atteberry points out in the book that men in our present day culture have some of the same tendencies that Samson had. They include: disregarding God’s boundaries; struggling with lust; breaking God’s rules; using anger as a tool; have big egos; struggle with intimacy; taking too much for granted; and never seeing God’s big picture for our lives. The book lists 12 tendencies that Samson and men in our culture today have in common and also shares how to overcome these tendencies. Early registration for the retreat ends on December 21. Your registration includes:2 nights at the Holiday Inn; 3 buffet meals; a banquet meal on Saturday night; great Christian fellowship; inspiring worship; a good Christian movie on Saturday night; life changing sectionals; and a challenging closing service that will challenge men to be Jesus’ disciple where God has placed them. Last year 12 men got the retreat as a Christmas present. One of the men wrote on his evaluation sheet, ”I have never been to a retreat like this where men are so engaged in worship; My life has been changed because of this weekend. Any questions call Jim at 414-462-5871.
  5. 5. NEWLHS STUDENT HOST FAMILIES NEEDED – SHORT TERM Host families are needed for several students from Peru who will arrive mid-January and stay until approximately March 1. This is a great opportunity to experience being a host family without a long term commitment. This is also an excellent way to help NEWLHS. Please contact Kris Schumacher at or 920-680-0911 for details. DID YOU HERE THE ONE ABOUT THE NEW PIANO? We started asking for donations toward a new "digital" electronic piano for the sanctuary. Within three weeks, the entire $2,500 needed has been raised. Watch for the arrival and dedication of the new piano soon. A little background: We have the current piano tuned often as it gets out of tune due to the atmospheric conditions in the church. A digital piano NEVER needs to be tuned! Advances in technology also allow the new pianos to sound and feel just like a traditional piano. It will also have recording capabilities and an organ setting.

  6. 6. THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS SHINES THOUGH 6 AT OSLC Our Saviour is a collection spot for the Salvation Army’s ‘Toys for Teens’ program; this is a spin-off of the ‘Toys for Tots’ program.

  10. 10. Green Bay Lutheran School Association/Trinity Update Question: Why operate a Lutheran school? Answer (from the Lutheran School Portal To Nurture the Children’s Faith - Faith is nurtured by daily proclamation of the Gospel, teaching children the Word of God and how to read and understand that Word on their own, and by modeling and challenging students to live the Christian faith. We live in a changing society where instant gratification and pleasure are gaining importance, while traditional family and moral values are declining. A society where the dehumanization of people (born and unborn) is constantly assaulting us. In the face of these societal changes one thing becomes evident – the importance of having a Christian worldview and strong Christian faith. On a daily basis the teachers and staff at Green Bay Trinity work with parents, developing a strong faith foundation in their children by “nurturing mind and spirit”. It is a foundation rooted in the absolute truth that Jesus Christ sacrificed himself and was raised to forgive our sins and grant us eternal life. For as St. Paul points out in his letter to the Romans, “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this; while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) It’s a foundation that teaches that what is right and what is wrong is identified in God’s Word and that such a foundation is timeless, consistent and reasonable for “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8) As an Association we have the opportunity to provide that Christian worldview to families in the greater Green Bay area. Assist us in fulfilling our mission of reaching all children in the community by spreading the word about Green Bay Trinity Lutheran as an option. Encourage families to look us up on the web (, on Facebook (, and on Twitter ( Suggest they contact the school at 655-4673 to set up a visit or attend the Open House in January. “For unto us a child is born, to us a son is given” (Isaiah 9:6) - Do you have plans on Monday evening, December 15?
