For this week's blog, as we celebrate our mission partnerships, welcome Reverend Chatman to worship, and renew our commitment to these partners moving forward, we offer a brief word of encouragement, as well as a video highlighting the important work these partnerships support.
About 50 years ago when I was a congregation pastor, a Luther College student came to visit me about his youthful concerns. Since then I have seen him twice, once when I visited his congregation and told them about Christ the King's Local Mission Partners ministry. A few weeks ago he called me and wanted to talk. He asked if I was sitting down. I asked "What's up?" He said, "I'm sending you $1000. I remember you telling about your congregation's immigrant ministries and I want to support your work." I pass this on as an encouragement to our congregation as we reach out to our community. Local Mission Partner's purpose is "To engage in God's mission with the growing diversity and ethnic/immigrant ministries in the Twin Cities."
