Unexpected blessings from a locked door
WORTHINGTON — On a chilly morning about a month ago, seconds after I waved goodbye to my husband and kids on their way to work and school, I received a text from my son. “Mom! Pls get pics of moon! Dad says good camera not phone.” “Oh, that’s right,” I thought, glancing...

Column: The things we cannot see
The last time I read this book I didn’t need glasses! I thought to myself as I picked up a beloved book and opened to page one. I’m not so sure I like getting older. Not that I am all that old, mind you. But still, the fact that my birthday is rapidly approaching gives a girl...

Column: That which seems impossible
Next month, Nov. 9, 2014, marks 25 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall. West Berlin was home to me at the time, although I was off at college when the wall actually opened. My parents still lived there, however, and I came home for Christmas five weeks later to see in person the...

Column: A new friend can be an answer to prayer
WORTHINGTON — Inevitably, when the calendar flips to August and back-to-school sales fill the aisles of the stores, I find myself feeling a wee bit nostalgic for freshly-sharpened pencils and brand-spanking-new three-ring binders. Not that I particularly want to go back to school,...

Column: This little light of mine
I didn’t grow up with lightning bugs. I read about them, saw them on TV, but I never saw one in person until I was 19 years old and in the jungles of Thailand. I remember standing out in a clearing and seeing little flashes of light all around me. I was transfixed. I asked a friend...

Column: What the rain brings
“Were you angry with the rivers, LORD? Was your wrath against the streams? Torrents of water swept by; the deep roared and lifted its waves on high.” Habakkuk 3:8,10 It’s almost as if Habakkuk lived here in southwest Minnesota, isn’t it? As if he could see the rivers and...

Column: An epiphany in St. Paul's Cathedral
LONDON — We missed it by 30 seconds. My husband and I had high-tailed it from the Tower of London — not all that far away but through a maze of Underground Tube stops — to make it by 4 so that we could tour St. Paul’s Cathedral, but as we rounded the corner and began paralleling...

Column: When mortal ills prevail
It was a typical Sunday morning. Mom and Dad were up in the choir loft. My older sisters were sitting in the high school pew where I, aged 10, was definitely not allowed. I was sitting with the deacons in my favorite spot: at the back, with a clear view of everyone and everything...

Column: Learning by heart
I grew up in a very non-liturgical church. We rarely recited the Lord’s Prayer, and I’d never even heard of the Apostles’ Creed until I moved away. Even the Doxology seemed suspicious when a new pastor wanted us to sing it every Communion Sunday. After growing up in such an...

Column: Still going to church -- because I believe
By Gretchen O'Donnell I grew up going to church at least three times a week: twice on Sundays and once on Wednesday night. In between those mandatory church times there were meetings, children’s events, rehearsals, and who knows what else that brought me or my parents in through...
