At St. Philip Since: 1994
What is your faith background?
Lutheran; classic “Minnesota Scandinavian” Lutheran.
I love St. Philip the Deacon because:
The mission of St. Philip was the original draw for me to join this congregation, it has always been important to me be of service to others and the community. In addition to all the opportunities to serve and learn, I love St. Philip for the music ministry. Music has always moved me spiritually. It is a privilege to be able to be in the Sanctuary Choir and hopefully be able to enhance the worship experience of the congregation as well.
Have you ever been surprised by God?
My “plan” for my life has not always been in line with God’s plan for my life, so I have often been surprised! What hasn’t been a surprise is that from each experience, I have learned more about what God expects of me and I received the gift of the reminder that God has a plan for me and that I need to have faith in that plan.
If you could meet God face-to-face, what would you want to ask?
Did I fulfill the purpose He expected of me? I pray I hear “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
