FAITH

A summer trip offered a much greater appreciation of the vastness of God’s creation on earth, while also putting things into perspective.
Lee Hein, the CEO of Fastenal, will speak about "Learning to Lead by Letting Go!" at the Unity Foundation's Faith at Work Lunch from noon-1 p.m. Friday, Aug. 19 at the Broadway Ballroom.
"Much of the trouble with religion is that we’ve convinced ourselves that we can know an infinite God, a God who created the entire universe that is billions of years old and which still reveals mysteries to us that we cannot solve. And in our hubris, we believe we can also know all of the answers about faith, especially about who is right and, more importantly, who is wrong."
The event is to raise money for Haitian ministry.

"While there are a great many serious things we need to manage in this earthly life, God does want us to enjoy life too! It is, after all, why he made joy and laughter and the lighter moments that help us celebrate a good life."
"Everyone who considers themselves a person of any faith, and also those who consider themselves a moral person but not religious, must understand that each of us is intricately woven into the fabric of creation.

"Jim Carrington, a reporter and editor at the Bemidji Pioneer newspaper in Bemidji, Minnesota, for 52 years, died at 93. His legacy isn’t widely known, but his effect on Minnesota’s sports reporting has reverberated for decades."
"Overturning federal protections that provide access to health care, the right to marry, the right to live out one’s sexual orientation, the right to define one’s own gender may make us feel better because of our interpretation of scripture. But in reality, what it does is put lives in jeopardy, impoverish the already impoverished, reduce human dignity, further marginalize the marginalized, alienate those already upset with the church’s hypocrisy and continues to splinter the body of Christ."
There will be a service celebrating the appointment on Sunday, July 10 at the 9 a.m. worship time.

For two years, the pandemic had prevented Heart of Clay Ministry from offering opportunities to inmates at the Clay County Correctional Facility. The return has been joyous not only for the inmates, but also for the volunteers who are seeing large groups return to the Bible studies.
Attendees to a recent meeting at a small country church on the border of Minnesota and South Dakota found armed guards at the church entrance. Then someone saw an AR-15, prompting a visit by the sheriff. It's the latest development in a battle for the soul of Singsaas Church near Astoria, South Dakota. The conflict pits a divisive new pastor and his growing nondenominational congregation, who revived the old church, and many descendants of the church's old families, worried about the future of a pioneer legacy.
"Many who think they are faithful never fully understand the practical implications of their beliefs, and what is actually demanded of them. And Christians are no less guilty of this than the faithful of any other religion."
