It looks like winter might finally be showing up here in the U.P. which is perfect timing as we start getting into the Christmas spirit.(more on that in a minute).This past Thursday we had the funeral for Wally Peterson, who was the last surviving charter member of Hope Free Lutheran Church. Come next spring we’ll be celebrating 50 years of God’s work through our church. That began with a group of people, like Wally, who followed the Spirit’s vision and leading and were obedient to God’s calling. This is the mark of the Christian, one who desires to seek God’s guidance. This is exactly what we’ll be concluding our part 3 of Christianity 101 with, what it looks like to be a follower of Christ.
A couple quick reminders as well. Don’t forget about the BIG community dinner this Sunday night. Also, we have our Thanksgiving church service Tuesday night and will be decorating the church after that! The busy season is starting to ramp up, as we ourselves gear up to celebrating the birth of our Savior.
