Living Faith: 'Blood is always red, and pain is always pain'
"It's what's inside that counts." The words were embroidered into the framed cloth, along with a cartoon teddy bear gazing down at his own visible heart. For years, the little wall-hanging traveled around with me, from bedroom to dorm room to first home. Though it's been replaced...

What does the Bible say about racism?
The news headlines of the last few weeks have been fraught with racial tension and angst. The issue of racism isn't something unique to our culture, but accounts like what we hear every night reveal a historical sensitivity throughout the ages manifesting a discomfort and even fear...

Living Faith: A full house beats a good flush, I always say
Last week, our youngest two kiddos bounced away to Boy Scout camp in Park Rapids for a week. While happy for them, I was left with a knot in my stomach. Suddenly, everything was so quiet, and I recognized my stomachache as a gnawing feeling of loneliness — something that, as...

Clergy View: The next right step
Joshua 3 and Deut. 7:21-22 After the Israelites left Egypt and followed Moses into the wilderness - towards the Promised Land, they came close to entering, but sent 10 spies into the Promised Land. Eight came back saying there were giants in the land and they would not be able to...

Living Faith: Untimely death reminds that nothing can separate us from love of God, love for others
Last weekend, I sang at the vigil service and funeral for a young man whose family has been a vital part of our church and school communities. While I felt honored to help sing this dear soul to heaven, I would have preferred different circumstances, as would everyone. He was only...

Dare not to compare, live a compassionate life of joy
"I hate to pretend like everything is OK when it isn't. And when I compare myself to others, I hate that my life is the roughest. I'm just so tired of it all." Have you ever had those thoughts of comparison, thinking no one has it as bad as you, but still you work at coming across...

Living Faith: If voices of faithful squelched, society loses
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." I've been thinking about this Edmund Burke quote a lot lately. Recently, I spoke at a National Day of Prayer event in Fargo. Two things seemed more clear than ever that night: 1) We faithful need each other's...

That God, he sure knows how to throw a party
Jesus is Fun ... who knew? Where are the fun Christians? I'm here. Where are you? Billy Joel was one of my favorite artists growing up. He had this song; "Only the Good Die Young," which was on my favorite album, "The Stranger." I can still belt out most of the lyrics: "They say there's...

Clergy View: Cling to the Good Shepherd
Jesus said, "I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep." (ASV) The Gospel of St. John speaks to us about Jesus being the "good shepherd who lays down his life for the sheep." The statement begs the questions from a Biblical perspective: what is a good...

Addicted to love (the everlasting kind)
I might as well say it. I'm addicted to love. I'm a girl of the 1980s, so yeah, Robert Palmer had it right. I want to be loved as I am, and I want to love others as they are. I suppose we all do. The problem is when we chase love by running after the feeling rather than the essence....

Living Faith: Loss of Grandma Gladys proves death can come as a friend
It was a rare day that you'd find a hair on her lovely head misplaced or her lipstick the slightest bit smudged. My husband's maternal grandmother, Gladys Hofer Kleinsasser, was a picture of physical grace and beauty. Which is why her comedic ribbing often caught us so off guard,...
