My Neighbor is a Public Servant

My Neighbor is a Public Servant

In this country, serving your neighbor, whether they are next door or on the other side of world, means serving the state. We are a nation of neighbors. Our neighbors lead us, our neighbors protect us, our neighbors watch out for us, our neighbors provide for us when we are in need. As children of God, we live on both side of this neighborhood street. We each need and we each provide. We each want and we each give. We each are loved and we each love. 

Pastor Peter: Emptying the Nest

Pastor Peter: Emptying the Nest

Our son Bjorn just graduated from high school and our daughter Della did the same two years ago.  This is a moment my wife Anne and I have been thinking about for some time now.  It’s called the “empty nest” and it’s a moment all together joyful and terrifying.  We’re so proud of the smart, funny, capable and kind young adults our children have become but we’re also more than a little nervous that we haven’t taught them everything they need to know to navigate the world on their own.
