A Message from Pastor Ken...
Hello Sisters and Brothers,
We want to thank all who have made us feel so welcome here at St. John’s. Yvonne, Bob and I feel very much loved and we so look forward to getting to know folks over the next many days, weeks, months and years.
Bob has quickly become the church office hound as he comes with me every day to the church office. He has settled in nicely to the routine and both of us are glad to be spending time with all the wonderful staff that we have at St. John’s.
Yvonne is settling into getting the parsonage all arranged and making such a wonderful home. Most days yet she finds herself still unpacking boxes. Truthfully, I think we have decided perhaps we have way too much “stuff.” We truly do not want to move again for many, many, many years to come.
In truth we have been remarkably busy. So busy in fact, I am lamenting that I have not found a chance to go out and be on a combine or drive a tractor pulling a grain cart or do fall tillage work or anything. Doing such was and will remain a desire of mine always especially now that we are down here in the heart of the grain belt. I am sure my chance will come.
As the year now turns toward the last couple of months and the weather will force us indoors, it remains my prayer that we can all stay healthy. These are trying times, but we will get through them. As Luther would state; “This is most certainly true.” We get through such times by doing as the church has done for over two thousand years and as our Lord commanded us to do. We love one another, and in so doing we know the Spirit is with us.
May God be with you all.
Pastor Ken, Yvonne and Bob!
