Bishop Eaton's December Column: "Cross true gift of Christmas"
Bishop Eaton's December column for The Lutheran is here!
"Christmas can be such a fraught season. It is forced to carry so much emotional freight. We must be merry. We must be filled with good cheer. We must be home surrounded by family. We must turn our lives into the happy endings of every TV Christmas special. There is a certain drivenness to get everything done, to get everything perfect by the stroke of midnight on Dec. 24."

Bega Kwa Bega Fall Festival
The Bega Kwa Bega Fall Festival took place November 8th at Augustana in West Saint Paul. Thank you to the over 200 people from more than 60 congregations who attended the event! Together we brainstormed new ways to partner with our companion congregations, celebrated 20 years of the University of Iringa, and raised more than $2,000 for Lutheran Disaster Response.
