Dear Friends in Faith,

Last month (I’m writing in July) Lynne and I celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary. We were married on June 14, 1974, at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Virginia, Minnesota; the congregation both Lynne & I grew up in.

I remember the big party we had for my parents’ 40th anniversary. We decided to have it then because my Dad had early signs of dementia and we weren’t sure if we’d be able to celebrate a 50th anniversary with them.

Thinking of that makes me feel my age, I’ll tell you. On the other hand, my parents were considerably older when they got married than Lynne & I were. We hope to have more than a few good years together yet!
