My fourth year of seminary, I lived in the house next door to that one. Lauren & Dean's house was occupied by Rance & Leslie Settle. They're now in Rochester, MN where Rance is the associate pastor at Redeemer Lutheran Church.Our Redeemer is a great congregation. Pr. Rodney Wise is a very kind man who understands suffering...and therefore understands mercy. I pray Dean's vicarage will be a blessed year!
Very good to hear, Fr. Matthew!
Great Caesar's Ghost, I grew up in Rochester MN! In fact, I think my best friend got married there. That was back when I went to Lutheran churches about as often and for the same reasons as I go to RC churches now -- someone I know got married or died. The bigger deal was, my friend was RC too, she was the Lutheran. They are still married and still there, after 40 some years.Little did I know that I'd turn into a Page 15 Or Get Off My Lawn Lutheran back then!
Ah...memories! Good to know the porch we built in front is still standing. A BUS hit the front of that house when we were living in it. Took out the entire front porch - there were Grateful Dead fliers all over the lawn as a result...but that's another story! :)Their family will be so blessed to serve at Our Redeemer - Rodney Wise is a wonderful man! Thanks for sharing!
