Sandi Anderson All Shepherds Lutheran Church

I was thrilled that you were able to lead our services again today at All Shepherds Lutheran Church! I and my church family are drawn to the warmth and grace that you exude, as well as your obvious passion for engaging people in sharing the love of our Living God. Your messages are mesmerizing and I, personally, always feel that I have quite literally received a tangible gift from your words. A gift that nurtures me and provides me thought, guidance and encouragement in the weeks after the service. I am aware that there is a line of propriety between pastors and their congregations, but I love that you speak with us as a peer who truly identifies and empathizes with our thoughts, words and actions. Regardless of our challenges and struggles, you always leave us with a strong bridge of hope. I appreciate your great sense of humor in regard to those zany moments that we all experience.

I found today’s message, “Under Construction,” particularly inspirational. Your emphasis on choices, and how they shape us within to become all that we are meant to be, was a joy to hear! I envisioned for myself a sign with the words, “stop, look and listen,” for consideration before limiting options that could facilitate my growth in positive and purposeful behavior. The by-line on your card, “Unleashing Possibility,” seems to be a succinct description of this process!!

Thank you so much for all that you have shared; I look forward to seeing you again. Enjoy your week with a happy heart. Abundant blessings to you and your family!

Supply Preaching David Lutheran Church

Our church had a time period of 2½ months between Pastors. Over that time period Pastor Brenda preached at David Lutheran on 4 weekends (three services each weekend) and also for Ash Wednesday. Our members received her sermons very well. She engages the congregation in her sermons and uses personal stories to give her sermons a more personal touch. Pastor Brenda always ends her sermons asking reflective questions to our members and encouraging them to think about how the scripture lessons are reflected in how we live our lives. While she is an ordained Methodist Minister, she was very thoughtful and cautious about following the Lutheran traditions. She was very gracious to our members and easily engaged in conversation with them. It was a pleasure having her for our supply pastor!

Chaplain David Ohio Northern University
