Yesterday in worship we recognized Matthew Garavalia, our Luther Seminary student, as it was his last Sunday (and sermon) at CTK. He was with us through 4 semesters, several sermons, classes, worship leadership practice, and conversations with CTK staff and leaders. His enthusiasm, joy and excitement for ministry was a wonderful addition to our congregation, and we sent him on to new adventures with a blessing. Thanks to all of you who gave him constructive feedback, words of encouragement and took the time to teach him about church life these past 2 years. I'll update you on where he goes next. ;)

This week I had the privilege to proclaim the resurrection promises to two families: Jean Fladeboe's service was held yesterday, and LaVerne Christianson's service was held at CTK this morning. I'd like to share a touching note LaVerne's son John wrote after he died on April 8, which we included in the funeral bulletin. One of the benefits of walking with families in these moments is frequent reminders of what really matters in life. -P Jen

"My father passed away in the early morning hours of this day. He was surrounded by his family and friends. He took his last breath peacefully after having a recent influenza virus and pneumonia. At 99 years old, looking forward to his 100th birthday, his will was strong to live, but the body just could not recover. God took him home.

I am so proud of him. Not just because he took care of himself and lived a long, healthy life, but the way he did it; a good person who demonstrated that goodness every day he was on this earth. A role model he was, and still is.

It’s only been a few hours and I am already missing being able to pick up the phone to chat and find out how things are going. Our weekly get-togethers; to assist him in taking his shower, going for a car ride and checking out what’s changing, getting that hair cut, buying birthday cards at Walgreens - the little things that mean so much.

He always told me, “Thanks for all that you do” when I would leave to go home. I would give him a kiss and wonder if it might be our last. This morning was our last.

Dad, thanks for all you did and for showing me the way to enjoy life and live it. I am so proud and honored to have you as my father."

As always, it was a wonderful Holy Week and Easter celebration--my 9th at CTK!! THANK YOU to so many people who joyfully made it a great experience. One of the best parts of my work is the opportunity to watch people flourish in their God-given gifts and witness how together we create something bigger than ourselves. He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed! Alleluia! -P Jen ...
