Welcome!  Thanks for dropping by.  I am an ELCA Lutheran pastor and have worked in parish ministry for over 27 yearsprjimdew.  This website is an occasional work in progress.  Just click on any of the main topics displayed along the top of the photo of the prayer labyrinth, and you will discover quite a number of other pages connected to each main topic.

I serve as parish pastor to the people of Santa Cruz Lutheran Church (ELCA) in Tucson, Arizona.  You can access the congregation’s website by clicking here.

My weekly e-mail… “This Coming Sunday”… is usually sent out on Wednesdays.  It provides an overview for each Sunday as it relates to the liturgical calendar, the Scripture lessons and prayers for that week, commentary on one or more of those lectionary readings, and helpful notes pertaining to my Sunday morning “Bible 101 Pastor’s Class”.

If you would like to be included in that weekly e-mailing, or if you’d like to contact me about anything else… simply send me a note using the form below.

I have an open door, open heart, and open mind, and I am happy to speak with you about practically anything. Please know that you are always welcomed to call, text, email, or simply drop by. — Pastor Jim
