Pastor Viewpoint: Keeping the faith
The morning after the Minnesota Vikings lost to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game, my sports crazy oldest son texted me. In addition to a bad cold and several, unappealing approaching tests, he said he felt "dead inside." He had lost his zest for everything he was...

Pastor's column: Won't you be my neighbor?
"It's a beautiful day in this neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor." (Theme song from Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, PBS) Last week Tom Hanks was cast to play Fred Rogers in a biopic about Rogers life, "You Are My Friend." Personally, I am thankful that they are bringing Mr. Rogers'...

Pastor viewpoint: Sin is not new, but repetitive
Whether we are priests, pastors or ministers, we share a lot in common — including listening to people. Often we are called upon to listen to people's problems, among which are folks' sins. In some churches there is formal opportunity for this to happen through a rite or sacrament...

Pastor viewpoint: Searching takes time, but is worth it
Have you ever looked for something and felt so frustrated about not finding it that you just gave up your search? A few days ago my oldest son Ethan was looking for a Lego so that He could finish building his Star Wars creation. As I sat there helping him look for the Lego, he said...

Sarah Nigbor column: The circle of life
It's been awhile since I wrote a column, and one of my resolutions in the new year is to connect with our readers more, now that I have my feet under me a bit more solidly since becoming regional editor (at least I think I do!) One way of doing that is helping people get to know...

When, if ever, do we love Him enough?
My brother once referred to pop as "trinkle" for almost an entire year of his life just because he thought it would be funny. That alone should tell you all you need to know about him, but I'll continue. He once drank an entire container of boysenberry syrup at a Perkins at midnight...

Pastor viewpoint: Begin the New Year like a new day
The January magazines with all their ideas for improving my life are finally on the newsstands. I am always grateful to get to this week of the year for this one big silly reason. After all, who doesn't want to improve their life? It is so easy to thumb through those pages and imagine...

Pastor viewpoint: A reason for the season of thankfulness
Thankfulness is a very broad concept since we each have a unique perspective on those things in our life for which we express our thanks; if each of us filled in the blank for the following declaration, "I am thankful for____ , we would all come up with a different list because each...

Pastoral viewpoint: The grace to let others help us
A little boy sat in his sandbox one Saturday morning. He was playing with his pail and shovel as well as a number of toy cars and trucks. As he went about building roads in the soft sand, he came across a large rock at the bottom of his sandbox. He dug around the rock then pushed...

Pastor Viewpoint: To heal the wound we must address sin
There is a wound in our world. Perhaps more appropriately, a gash. A hole from which blood pours and pain radiates. It reveals to reality all that is inside of us, and it isn't always pretty. Over the past few years in America, the wound has been growing larger. They do that when...

Pastor Viewpoint: Hudson, we have a problem
"What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, 'Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,' but does nothing about their physical...
