"The gospel message this morning at the Lake Wobegon Lutheran Church, in case you missed the service, actually the epistle, was the verse from the Colossians in which it says to put on the clothes of compassion and kindness and to forgive each other as God has forgiven us." A few thoughts on making the transition to a new year, in a brief monologue from December 2006.
