Friday, September 18 was the date for our annual North St. Paul Community Prayer Breakfast held at K & J Catering which always serves a beautiful buffet.. Each year we listen to beautiful music and hear a dynamic speaker. The special music by Luke Olson and Nate Greenwalt was just outstanding. A comment that we hear year after year is “This was the best prayer breakfast ever.” Naturally that which is fresh in our mind gives us a clearer picture of the speaker. Whether an experience is good or bad, the impression of the most recent tends to speak the loudest to us.

Shepherd of the Hills celebrates its 50th
On Sept. 20, a local church congregation will celebrate its golden anniversary. Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church in Shoreview is about to turn the big 5-0.
The first ever Shepherd of the Hills service was held on Sept. 19, 1965 at Island Lake School. 154 people attended this inaugural service. Fast-forward 50 years and the church is still going strong.
Let’s see, what am I going to do today? Whether we think about it consciously or not, we probably do have the question. The little child may say, “Mommy, I’m hungry.” The older person may just do what he or she wants to do without saying anything. At ages 78 and 84, my dear wife and I do things by habit or by planning. Whatever and however we do it there is value in thinking about and having a plan. And of course this is always subject to change.
