     One Chance was an awsome night.  God did some amazing thing in some peoples lives and I think almost everyone had a good time.  The band Car Full of Mididgets was amazing, again, as it was at Battle of the Bands.  Congradualations to Ms Lindsey Higgns who one the Valley Idol contest.  The I-pod winner was Kara, I don’t know her last name.  Figaro’s is my favorite pizza but I wasn’t hungry. An open invitation to anyone who would like to go to the Easter worship service at Fox Valley Christian Fellowship.  I am siging in the adult choir and we are doing a multimedia.  I have taken an increased apprciation for Holy Week this year.   


     I realized today that I have drifted from some part of me over the course of the year at Kimberly.  Its time to take that back.  I need to be me.  There is truth.  This truth can be evident when I am the most of me, who God created me to be.  Taking this good truth to push onto others is not me becuase it is not how this truth, I belive, was intended to shout.  It shouts like a tree.  There are headphone stations on this tree, this is were the sound comes from.   Peace to all and to all a good night.








You Are a Lazy Cook

Technically, you’re a cook… in that you do cook the occasional frozen burrito in the microwave.
Get a little adventurous. Sprinkle some fresh cheese on that frozen pizza next time!

Jesus came into the world speaking the language, living the customs, and using the forms meaningful for people living in a particular time and place. At the same time, Jesus challenged and inverted many of those same forms, customs, and symbols. He reinterpreted the Passover meal in light of his own death. He overturned the temple tables, healed on the Sabbath, and advocated nonviolent resistance. In many ways these acts were profoundly irrelevant and even dangerous in that culture; some of them still are today. These acts reflected values of the kingdom of God that radically countered those of broader culture.

About minuiperiannath

Name: Spencer Wentland College: North Central University Year: Senior Major:Intercultural Studies My story of meeting Jesus in short: Not many weeks after I was born my parents baptized me into the Christian faith at First English Lutheran Church in my hometown, Appleton, WI. There they renewed their promises to renounce the devil and his ways, the world and evil and raise me the same way teaching me to love and fear the Lord, the Lord's Prayer, the Ten Commandments, the Creeds and when of reading age to put the Holy Bible in my hands and all the while, with the church community, instruct me in the Christian faith. My parents weren't perfect but they did fulfill the vows they made at my baptism. I had my own more personal experience with the Lord around the age of seven when I followed Jesus out of the Gospels to a "quiet, lonely place" in my backyard with the hope to do whatever Jesus did there. Without realizing it or ever being taught how to "receive Jesus into your heart" it happened quite like that even seeing a mental vision of Jesus and knowing I need to welcome him into my heart and let him sit on the throne of my life. I've never been the same since then and the Lord has kept his promise to be with me "always." I confirmed what my parents chose for me in a public confession of faith and the ritual of believer's baptism at a local swimming school where the Assemblies of God church my mom attends used to do their baptisms. I've never regretted a life with Jesus; life has always been richer, deeper and fuller because of it. About Me: Ha that's a funny question, and a popular one today. Well, if you really want to know "all about me" you will have to meet me. For starters I am hard to put in simple categories and often find myself tumbling between labels; i.e. introverted and extroverted, strong and weak, intuitive yet a rationalist, introspective and social, unique and individual yet needing people and empathetic. I belong to and am part of the Way and that is probably the most defining important part of my being. (Acts 24:14) As a God lover in the Way of Jesus Christ I long to see and embrace all things and people in his love for his glory. Creative people and places energize me. I enjoy and appreciate art and artists and like to contribute and collaborate in making my own art at times. I need my own time and spend a lot of time in contemplation- this is where I get recharged and new vision and vitality for life. A con of my personality is my ill attempts to understand everything about everything. At the same time I also get energy from others and love to be sociable. I make matrix like connections in my mind and although my comments often are perceived as random too me they are very connected to something. To me connection and harmony are very important and I believe the truth brings that out. The last few years have been filled with learning, studying and meeting wonderful people. Copenhagen, Escanaba, Nagasaki, and now back to Minneapolis! So excited to learn, grow and finish my last year at university! Call: I feel strongly called by the Lord to work and give myself as missionary of love to the Japanese people. As the Lord leads I hope to take a missionary assignment through ELCA Global Mission teaching English and serving in congregational mission and leadership in Japan. Eventually I would like to serve as an apostolic worker planting boiler rooms (missional/monastic communities) around the Japanese archipelago with a bunch of other Jesus lovers in international, incarnational bands of friends. About this blog: This blog is for my Church Administration and Personal Finance class. I'm looking forward to interesting and practical conversation and learning that will help develop my leadership and organizational skills for however and whatever takes shape out of the Lord's call.

  1. Yea, There is only one truth. As Jesus said in the Bible. I am the Way, The Light, and The Light. I’m not sure where I’m going for Easter Sunday. More than likely I’ll be at FVCF. Hope to see you there. I miss ya, Spencer. And Keep Being Who God Created You to BE.
