On Faith: The good shepherd
In John 10 Jesus teaches us about God being our shepherd. "The man who enters by the gate is the shepherd of his sheep. The watchman opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he...

On Faith: Christianity in politics
My wife and I recently shared a dinner with some friends; joining us were another couple who we had not met before. It was a nice evening with good food and conversation. After our meal my new friend turned to me and asked, "Did you vote for Mr. Trump?" I was impressed with such a...

On Faith: Learning to Grieve Part 1: It's important to allow grieving
Over the years, our town has gone through a series of catastrophic events affecting every aspect of our community. We have all been overwhelmed with huge sense of loss at times. Obviously when events like this happen, everyone is affected: family, friends, teachers, neighbors, even...

On Faith: 'We are an imperfect church, made for imperfect people'
The year 2017 constitutes an important anniversary in the history of western civilization. Five-hundred years ago, Martin Luther submitted the 95 Theses to the Wittenberg University faculty beginning the Protestant Reformation. While interpreting these events can make for an interesting...

On Faith: Silence at the empty tomb
After the Sabbath, some women were on their way to Jesus' grave to embalm his body. They were preparing to move on and come to terms with the finality of death once again. Along the way, they probably talked about how caring Jesus had been and what a great example he was. But then...

Guest Commentary: Children desperately need foster families now
Children in need of foster care come from all families, all areas of the state, all socioeconomic backgrounds. What they share in common are their struggles. Most have been abused or neglected; some are dependent on alcohol or drugs; some have mental health concerns; some have had...

Nolan: Future of health care remains uncertain
What a travesty for our nation. President Donald Trump and House Republicans last week passed their American Health Care Act (Trumpcare) bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). And by doing so, they delivered a simple and direct message to the American people:...

On Faith: Our six word memoir
I stumbled across a website some time ago called "Six Word Memoirs," which invites people to tell a story, explain a philosophy, or describe who they are using just six words. The idea comes from Ernest Hemingway, who was once challenged to write a tragic novel using only six words....

On Faith: The day that changed history
A Finished Work As Jesus hung upon the cross, He cried, "It is finished. Father, into Your hands. . .", and died. He died for Adam's fallen race. He died sin's curse to be erased. He died, that we might have God's grace. He died. They laid Him in a borrowed tomb that day. Shut the...

On Faith: Why Easter matters
This past Sunday, we celebrated Easter, the most significant and joyful festival within the Christian church year. Easter is unique from Christmas, in that it is less "cluttered up" with cultural associations and celebrations; apart from Easter baskets and ham dinners, Easter primarily...

Guest Commentary: Education should be our priority
Recently, the House Republicans approved their education bill that underfunds our state's education needs and particularly hurts Greater Minnesota. Disguised as a technical change, the House Republicans changed the "compensatory revenue" formula which results in gutting education...

On Faith: Gospel-shaped community
The past few months, I have been asking myself a question: What does a community shaped by the Gospel look like? The more I think about it, the more I realize that as Christians, it's a question we should be asking. Too often, I hear from people that one of the reasons they don't...

On Faith: God has no need for us
To begin this article, I would like to share with you a quote which comes from perhaps one of the biggest forces for doctrinal instruction and teaching in the very early Christian church, Saint Iranaeus.

It's that time of year when winter seems to stay a little too long and spring seems to come a little too late. Then a sickness comes along and makes things worse.

On Faith: When you're on the canyon floor
In his book "A Gentle Thunder," Max Lucado speaks about Wile E. Coyote from the old Roadrunner cartoons. Wile E. chases after his very skinny (but intelligent) prey, and just as he's about to grab his lunch, the roadrunner steps aside and stops on a dime right on the edge of a huge...
