Proclaiming a changeless Christ in a changing world

We have resumed public worship on Sunday mornings at 9:15 with appropriate safeguards in place.  We are also recording the service so that you may participate online; you can view it on our Worship page.

Pastoral care is still available - please contact Pastor Brian

Why Did They Do It?

As I type this, the temperature in St. Paul is -21.  That's not the wind chill, mind you, but the actual air temperature.

-21 is cold, even by Minnesota standards.  Our high today may only reach -17. This would be an all-time record for January 6.

Yesterday the temperature was just above zero in Green Bay.  Still, some 72,000 fans flocked to Lambeau Field.

For Crying Out Loud

For the last couple of months I have been re-reading a very unusual book for my morning devotions.  The book was given to me as a gift from Martha Plagens. 

"Arrows of Light:  Devotions for Worldwide Christians" was written by David Schneider.  Schneider was a Lutheran missionary, colleague, and friend of Bob and Martha Plagens.  Martha gave me the book soon after I arrived at Our Saviour's.  She even got David to write a little inscription inside the front cover.

Lessons in Patience

Yesterday morning I had an eye exam.  I hadn't had my eyes checked since 2006, so I figured it was time.  My appointment was for 10 o'clock at an optical store in the Maplewood Mall.  When I arrived I had some paperwork to fill out.  This took perhaps five minutes.  I then waited another five or ten minutes for the optometrist to come and get me.  About twenty minutes into the exam the optometrist dilated my eyes using some drops.  I then had to wait twenty minutes for the drops to do their job.
