Member of Our Saviour's Lutheran Church, Regina SK;
I have been ordained for 40 years. Nine of these were serving as assistant to the president of the former ELCC, one year of graduate studies at LTS, Saskatoon, and the remaining years in parish ministry in four locations.;
I have a perspective of both rural and urban ministry as well as the perspective of the National Church and administrative experience in both. At the time of merger and formation of the ELCIC I served a 2 year term on National Church Council.;
Having served an interim ministry during retirement in an ecumenical situation I have seen first-hand the importance and necessity, especially in a rural setting, for us to be envangelistic and ecumenical.;
That the Word of God be proclaimed in its truth and purity and the Sacraments be administered accordingly. That there be unity of spirit in the bond of peace in our church both locally, synodically and nationally.
