This Weekend in Worship
Preaching: We are welcoming back former Associate Pastor Denny Wright!
Sermon: "Following God's Lead"
I am thinking of this message as a 'recruitment message' for people who are not expecting a calling from God to door ministry. You see, it was at the tail end of First Lutheran's year-long 100th Anniversary Celebration that Winnie and I responded to Pastor George Carlson's message from the pulpit to "Go To Nineva". His idea was LSTC (The Lutheran School of Theology) in Chicago . We chose NLTS (Northwestern Lutheran Theological Seminary) in St. Paul. It has been a wonderful ride filled with many stories, one of which includes your Seniors Pastor's wife. - Denny W.
Scripture Readings: Jonah 1:1-6, Mark 3:20-35 NRSV
