Writing Our Story

If we were to write the story, these would be the working titles for the chapters of our Redeemer history: Beginning: Founding with Compassion and Inclusivity at the Core Phil Hanson’s imprint as our founding pastor runs through and through us. Partnerships with AA and Lyngblomsten from our founding demonstrate a deep desire to minister to those in need. Spiritual Growth: Growing Deeper and Wider in Faith and Families Growth groups formed faith; and mission work came to the forefront. Maturing: Focus on Families Partnerships with Young Life and Lake Area Discovery Preschool brought new vitality. Modernization: Change, Controversy, Challenges and a New Building Leaning into our vision of inclusivity, contemporary worship, and a more functional worship and gathering space brought change and some conflict. “Writing Our Story” - Continued on page 7…

Our strategic planning work got off to a wonderful start on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, September 13, as about 60 congregation members gathered to write Redeemer’s story, from our founding in 1958 until today. We worked in groups to identify key community happenings, mission partnerships, and congregational events throughout the life of our faith community; and then we identified critical turning points, highlights, challenges and celebrations throughout the years. Our work helped us to capture the “chapters” of our story in just a few hours together.

We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. We miss the moments because we rush ahead to the next thing. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God. Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

Crossroads of Redeemer

Book A Well Tempered Heart by Jan Phillip Senker Leader: Barb Wojahn In the sequel to the international best-selling novel The Art of Hearing Heartbeats, it has almost been ten years since Julia Win came back from Burma, her father’s native country. Though she is a successful Manhattan lawyer, her private life is at a crossroads; her boyfriend has recently left her and she is, despite her wealth, unhappy with her professional life. Interwoven with Julia’s story is that of a Burmese woman named Nu Nu as her world is turned upside down when Burma goes to war and calls on her two young sons to be child soldiers. This spirited novel explores the most inspiring and passionate terrain: the human heart. Our November book will be Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown. Now is the time to pick up the 2015-16 Redeemer Book Club book mark in our Library. Find out the great books that we will be reading and discussing this year.

Crossroads of Redeemer

“Writing Our Story” - Continued from page 1… New Start: Growing, Celebrating . . . and Graying Kingdom Assignments, Ignite Life, and the call of a new pastor brought lots of celebrations, as recognition of our strength as a community for seniors started to shape a new direction with the birth of Second Half Ministry. Recharging: Rebirth of Outreach, Worshipping Well, Becoming a Model Church (and wondering where have all the families gone) Mission partnerships (many formed from the kingdom assignments and many forged in our founding years) became a defining hallmark for Redeemer . . . and our worship life was greatly enhanced by the call of a new director of worship and music. It was really exciting to see our story unfold. And it’s going to be even more exciting as we continue to sketch the storyline for our next chapter later this fall. In addition to drafting the chapters of our history, we also spent time reflecting more deeply on the past (our accomplishments and setbacks), the present (our strengths and our challenges), and the future (our risks/ vulnerabilities and our opportunities). It was a full day . . . and you can read the detailed summary reports on the Recharge Redeemer bulletin board in the atrium.

your reactions to our Redeemer story chapters, so please stop by and let me know what you think. Wishing you the colorful blessings of autumn, Pastor Pam

Next steps in our strategic planning will include a neighborhood walk to engage our neighbors in conversation and a special evening with neighbors, local mission partners and community leaders to learn more about the needs and trends in our neighborhood . . . and to explore possibilities for expanding our partnerships in ways that would benefit the local community. As we move forward as a team, I hope you will continue to keep Redeemer in your prayers. We are asking for keen discernment to know God’s will for us as we move into the future. I also invite you to take a little time to reflect on your own journey of faith to see if you can discern the chapters of your own story. It will be an eyeopening exercise if you do! And, finally, I’d love to hear Crossroads of Redeemer

MEET CAROL!

CONFIRMATION SUNDAY

The peace of Christ and greetings! I am Carol Seilhymeryour new interim pastoral associate - CYF, and am excited to be with you and look forward to the coming months as we journey together in Christ’s light. Not too long ago someone reminded me, God’s is always with us, the light of Christ travels with us, as we do God’s work with our hands.

The 9th grade confirmation students will be at Camp Wapogasset on Friday, October 2 through Sunday, October 4 for their confirmation retreat. They will be participating in a number of activities as they prepare to affirm their baptism on Sunday, October 25 at the 10:30 service. This year’s confirmation class includes:

As our journey begins together, I thought I should share a little about myself. My heritage is rich with faithful, lifelong Lutherans. I spent my childhood in the suburbs of Milwaukee, WI and was one of five children. After marrying my husband Steve, we moved to Connecticut, Washington before settling in Minnesota. Steve and I reside in Woodbury with our cat. He works for XcelEnergy in Red Wing, MN. There have been several twists along the path, before I responded to God’s call with Steve’s love and support. Currently, I am a senior at Luther Seminary and just back from my internship. One of my passions is to walk alongside people in their faith journey and formation. Additionally, I am a “second career” person as my previous callings have included customer service, hotel management, and commercial lines insurance. While working full-time, I went back to school and obtained my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a minor in Youth and Family ministry at Augsburg College in Minneapolis. When I am not studying or working, you will usually find me around people. I love to talk and listen to the stories of how Christ meets us in our lives. Other times, I can be found hanging out with friends, shopping or knitting a prayer shawl. In the coming weeks, I look forward to conversations as we begin to do the work of Lord on this new journey. Peace, Carol Seilhymer Interim Pastoral Associate CYF (Children, Youth and Family)
