The Pastor Challenge

The Pastor Challenge

The Assist Pregnancy Center's Walk-Run-Ride for Life is coming up in May and this year I am challenging myself in order to challenge all of you! I am challenging myself to ride a "Metric Century" (100 kilometers) in four hours, and if I can ride farther than I ever have at one time before, I challenge all of you to support me more than ever before. I set my goal this year at $5,000, and our team (Lutherans for Life) at $7,500! If I can do it, you can do it. Assist helps so many mothers and babies, and they are expanding their facility to help even more - and so need our help more than ever, especially coming out of this pandemic. So please help! CLICK HERE to go to my sponsor page to sponsor me, or you can sponsor anyone else who joins the team, or the team as a whole.

Will you step up to the challenge??

Holiday Lights

Here's a picture of some of the lights we saw last night at the local Botanical Gardens "Walk of Lights." It was pretty cool. Lots of interesting things to see. In this picture, you can see my father, wife, daughter, and sister in the foreground.

The Peasant Family Thanksgiving feast! Turkey and stuffing, cranberry, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, peas, fruit and vanilla yogurt salad, homemade dinner rolls, and for dessert . . . three pies! Apple, pumpkin, and pecan. I ate waaaaaay too much, but it was a good and enjoyable day. Tonight we are going to a local botanical gardens to look at their "Festival Walk of Lights." The weather isn't supposed to be too cold, so should be nice!

Great Quote

Read this the other day. Think about it and you'll realize the profundity of it.
The Law always comes at the gift refusal point.

New Mission?

There is a church near my house. It was called the "Family Worship Center." I say was, for a couple weeks ago they changed their name to "Summit Church." Along with that name change was a new banner which said: "New Name. New Mission. Same Church."


New mission? How does the mission of the church change? Are they no longer for families? No longer about worship? I do not understand . . .
