  1. Congratulations on your Ordination, Anna. I’m glad to see you got your wish by going back to your home synod. I was kind of wondering where you would turn up since you dropped of the grid from Somerset (and your blog). I’ve been reading your sermons as I have time, always found them very well structured and inspiring. Be sure to continue posting them.

    Hope all continues to go well for you in your new congregations. May God bless your ministry and life.

    • Actually, Bill, I didn’t end up in my home synod. I was ordained in my home congregation, but my churches (Augustana and Birka) are in North Dakota.

      I will keep posting them! God be with you.
