Urban Ventures’ Center for Families: A Program for the Whole Family!

BY PRISCILLA BROWN    On a cold and snowy night in December, a room is filled with adults and children dressed in their Sunday’s best, but they’re not here for a holiday party. They’re here instead for a graduation.

SPIRIT WOUNDS: Passion for Justice and Beauty: LA POSADA

by Patrick Cabello Hansel We had our annual Posada last Saturday–the Christmas procession with Mary and Joseph/Maria and Jose, looking for shelter for the holy child.

Leonard Kendall, (1943-1953) instilled is us students many tenets of Lutheranism and the Bible, but outstanding to me, 65 years later, is that we must always trust that the teacher, the leader, will always “have our back.” Trust like that in church, government and [...]

Letter to the Editor: While hoping for Sale, Messiah’s pianos to kids, hymnals to Africa, music to churches, and archives to smaller boxes
