Midweek Lent worship

Where are you worshiping tonight? Some area churches are hosting midweek Lenten season worship services. I'll be out west in eastern Pope County, West Lake Johanna Lutheran, where they are hosting worship starting at 7 p.m.

Below is video from worship at West Lake Johanna Lutheran on January 31, featuring the reading of the lesson, Gospel as well as Pastor Steve's sermon:

I'm back into catch-up mode on many fronts. We published a 12-page issue this morning. It was a huge lift! Yikes! 

On the COVID front, it's worth noting that Minnesota has recently fallen "sharply" behind South Dakota in the race to vaccinate the public. As of today, South Dakota reports that 22 percent of their state has received at least one jab. In Minnesota, if 22 percent of the public had at least one dose, we'd have over 1.24 million with the first jab complete. Instead, we're hovering around 800,000 people who have had at least one jab. 

We all need to keep asking the question: why is Governor Walz so bad at his job? Why is his state health department so bad at their job? Why do we accept a failed governor? It is really aggravating.

Also, the area scoreboard from last night's basketball games was updated and posted on the previous blog post here. See below.

Also, I learned tonight that Perham will not be attending the wrestling triangular tomorrow at Morris Area high school. The event will be a dual between our B-B-E Jaguars wrestling team and Morris Area/Hancock/Chokio-Alberta. The JV wrestlers will start competing at 6 p.m., and once that wraps up, the varsity dual will begin. On Thursday afternoon I'll get a live video player posted on this blog in a new blog post.
