Tripolis Lutheran Church of Good Housekeeping or Home and Office magazines. Each item is a quality reminder -
TLC November 2010 like the poster of a beagle sheepishly looking upward and the caption, “I may not always
be right, but I’m always willing to be forgiven.”...or the simple bumper sticker on the file
cabinet, “Grace Happens”...and the sheet paper with the saying, “Stop fretting, Be quiet,
Learn peace, Birth Peace.” On the other wall is a collage of pictures and posters from
Myanmar, my personal connection to the rest of God’s world, ...and beside that are two
pictures from Boundary Waters trips - the first, of a youth leader (now a pastor in North
