AARP has a clever TV ad: "When I grow up I want to. . ." and then several individuals nearing retirement age articulate their dreams:
- build houses
- work with kids
- start my own business
- travel the world.
We have spent the past wonderful 24 years in Waverly, Iowa, where Fred was professor at Wartburg College and Gloria was chaplain at Allen Hospital. So it's hard to leave, but the time is right to follow our call to a new life in Jerusalem with all its challenges and opportunties.
Our commissioning service will be on August 15 at St. Paul's Lutheran Church and we depart for Jerusalem August 21.
We invite you to follow our Walk in Jerusalem on this blog.
