Ordinary to Extraordinary

When the LIVING Lord Jesus shows himself, the ordinary becomes amazing!  When Jesus comes every moment is an opportunity for the Lord to make himself known.

This Sunday we have the extraordinary opportunity to hear Pastor Wendy Berthelsen.  Author of several books including The Wise Economy of Your Life and Custom Designed--A Life Worthy of the Call.

Pastor Wendy is co-pastor of Hope Lutheran Church, suburban Dallas, Texas and founder of Call, Inc.  Her ministry is dedicated to helping Christ followers find God's unique call in their individual lives.  
Seeking and knowing God's unique call to you is an amazing, uplifting and joyful experience! As you seek God's call, you will find the depth of life that you seek. In the end, you will answer two of life's most significant questions:

Who Am I?

What Am I To Do?

This Sunday we will hear from Pastor Berthelsen as she preaches at worship.  She will also be available from 10:00 - 10:45 in regard to Call Centered life and ministry.  It will be a good morning.

Incidentally, Toni and I have known Wendy and her husband Joel since Wendy and Toni were "housemates" in the early 1980s.  Our families have gone to family camp together for a long time--becoming known as the "Berthelthors."

More about Pastor Berthelsen:  She was born in St. Paul Minnesota and received a Bachelor of Arts in General Science from Gustavus Adolphus College and a Master of Arts and Master of Divinity from Luther Seminary. She has had nearly twenty years of broad professional ministry experience. Previously, she was a biomedical senior research engineer at Medtronic Inc. for eight years, receiving three U.S. patents. She and her husband Joel have been married for over 25 years and have four children. For several years, she was primarily a stay-at-home mom. Blessed by the Holy Spirit with the gifts of teaching, leadership and administration, Wendy has dedicated many years to teaching people about God’s call.
