Conquering Death to Give us Life

Posted by Dr. Steve Buuck on Apr 1, 2018 5:00:00 AM

Woody Allen once said, “I'm not afraid of death, I just don’t want to be there when it happens.”  That’s cute and funny, but the reality is… he was afraid of death and it is going to happen – to all of us.  I don’t know about you, but that scares me a bit.  For the huge majority of the people in the world, even us Christians, death can seem scary.  But as Jesus walked the face of the earth, death didn’t scare Him.

GOOD Friday?

Posted by Dr. Steve Buuck on Mar 30, 2018 5:00:00 AM

Good Friday?  What is so good about Good Friday?  Is this an appropriate title for such a day?  In my younger days, I always viewed this as the most depressing day of the year.   Churches are dark, pastors often wear black, fewer candles are lit, people are somber, the music is depressing.  We often leave the sanctuary in silence.  What’s so good about Good Friday?

The Future of our City

Posted by Dr. Steve Buuck on Jan 16, 2018 5:00:00 AM

A few weeks ago, I was invited to a small luncheon to hear Jeremy Aguero from Applied Analysis and Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval speak about Nevada’s economy.  Generously hosted by Nevada State Bank, these two men shared exciting and pertinent information about our state and city – all of which is great news for Faith Lutheran and our future.

The Gift of Presence

Dearest Faith Families, 

It’s the most wonderful time of the year (in my best Andy Williams’ voice!).  The sights, the sounds, the smells, the tastes…I hope everyone loves the Christmas season!   Around Faith Lutheran, our students, faculty, and staff will enjoy some well deserved time off to spend time with family and friends.   And maybe open some presents.

Las Vegas Tragedy and Our Response: Thankful

Posted by Dr. Steve Buuck on Oct 4, 2017 4:47:14 PM

Make no mistake.  There is still disbelief.  There is still fear.  There is still pain.  There is still grief.  At least 60 are dead; more than 500 are injured.  Countless others wounded emotionally.  Unanswered questions like “Why?!?” still abound among the madness.

Yet in the midst of the chaos, God has been faithful.   He has heard the cries of schools, churches, and citizens around the world praying for peace and comfort and strength.  He has answered those prayers with a resounding “Yes!”

We're on a Mission

Posted by Dr. Steve Buuck on Sep 22, 2017 5:00:00 AM

A few years ago, my wife and I traveled to Israel.  One day while at the Church of the Multiplication of Loaves and Fishes on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee, a bus filled with Israeli soldiers from the Israeli Defense Forces pulled into the parking lot.  I asked our tour guide what they were doing.  He explained that soldiers are toured around the entire country so they learn the history, culture, beliefs, geography, and people of Israel.  He quipped, “Too many soldiers go into battle, and they don’t know what they’re fighting for.  We make sure that doesn’t happen in Israel.”
