On Faith: Spring to life
Spring is the time when everything comes to life again. Trees begin to get buds, grass turns green again, birds return and sing and farmers and gardeners are busy preparing for the growing season. It's a time when everything springs to life. Wouldn't it be nice if our lives could...

On Faith: Fear and the Easter Bunny
"The world is going crazy." This is a comment I am hearing more and more frequently and in numerous settings. Some would say that it is an easy observation to prove by simply watching the evening news, reading the newspaper or scanning the Internet. Through these and other outlets...

On Faith: Building Heathly Relationships Part 3: How to make our partner feel loved
I got this concept from a class I took many years ago in Colorado from a guy named Dr. Harley who wrote the book "His needs Her Needs, How to Affair Proof Your Marriage." His basic concept was that each of us has an emotional love bank that needs to be filled. Every time we cause...

On Faith: Picturing Jesus
Growing up in “America’s Little Sweden” of Lindstrom, Minn., as a child I would frequently encounter pictures of Jesus hanging in my grandparents home. Jesus in these portraits looked like a gentleman whose appearance would fit right at Santa Lucia Day festivities with long,...

On Faith: Lent as shadows
As of this past Wednesday, churches that observe the liturgical calendar have entered the season of Lent, the 40 days prior to Easter, a season that is marked by simplicity, reflection and solemnity. While some find this season to weigh too heavily, I think there's a lot to be said...

On Faith: Silence of nature in winter
I am one of those strange and perhaps frustrating people who loves winter. In fact, winter is my favorite season here in the Northland. I love the cold, the snow, ice-fishing, hockey, Christmas and all the many wonderful things that winter brings. And perhaps one of my favorite aspects...

On Faith: What do I worship?
Remember that scene in "Star Wars Episode 6, Return of the Jedi," where the cute little Ewoks think that the annoying gold-colored droid C-3PO is their god and begin worshiping him? Some good comic material comes from that minor part of the storyline, especially when C-3PO informs...

On Faith: Keeping the Christmas Spirit
I work part time at City Hall in Silver Bay. When my coworkers asked me about my birthday party, I told them I wanted a Christmas theme (my birthday is in July). So they set up and decorated the Christmas tree, with a little 'Lance angel' on the top. We had a dinner with Christmas...

On Faith: Lost in the wilderness
Since I am new to the shore I did a great deal of exploring this hunting season. My black lab Zena and I were on the quest for grouse in the northern forests. We had a great deal of fun and covered much territory.
