from Pastor Tom Lutz

    Welcome to my "stories" page.  I have enjoyed writing and telling stories as long as I can remember, and the internet gives me a wonderful opportunity to share with you my writing.  My stories usually fall into two categories:  first is fantasy, it is my first love.  I am an avid comic book collector and love science fiction such as Star Trek.  So many of my stories revolve around superheroes or sci-fi themes.  (I know you might think that's a little strange for a Pastor, but it works for me.)  Second are stories that are derived from my work in the ministry.  These are stories that recount events in my ministry such as "Waiting for the Ground to Move" or stories I have used in sermons such as "Lost Moments".  The theme that unites these two different styles is Christ.  I make no bones about it, Christ is in everything I write because He is the center of my life.  I have tried to write more secular themed stories, but it becomes impossible because in order to do that I have to ignore the most important thing in my life, my faith.  I just can't do that.

    There is a third style of writing I have done quite a bit of also, I write full length plays.  I do not at this time have plans to put them on the website, but I do have plans to make them available to anyone that has need of them.  Keep in mind when I say full length plays I mean full length plays, that take two hours to perform.  As the stories are, they are Christ centered plays.  Most of my plays however are comedies, with a few dramas mixed in.  If you are interested in finding out more about these plays please e-mail me at  Please put in the subject "Plays" because I delete most e-mails from unknown sources.  I must warn you though, these plays are basically dialogue with some stage direction.  I have written twenty of them so there are plenty of them.  Why am I offering them?  Well, because I believe that plays can be used to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to people who normally would not come to church with you.  So if you are a church or school looking for Christ centered plays, that give a chuckle while sharing the truth of God's love, send me an e-mail.  

    I hope that you enjoy these stories and at that same time respect their authorship rights. 



For God so loved the World that He gave His one and only Son
