Thank You, Gwen

Sorry everyone, but I’m a little burned out from the never-ending cycle that always seems to be more interested and focused on Royal Weddings, killing enemies and war, tornadoes, blizzards, power outages, and destruction of everything and everyone. It seems like a never-ending story of bad news.

It’s always refreshing to remember that we are called to live as children of the resurrection, so I thought this was something I could share and maybe, just maybe, it can offer a light of good news and hope when it seems like we are being swallowed at times in darkness and despair. 🙂

One of the great joys in my life as a follower of the risen Jesus is witnessing God working in and through people to bring blessings to their neighbor. Fellow brothers and sisters in Christ Gwen Kreft & Ron Frei are a great example of how I have seen this recently first hand.

Gwen and Ron promoted the “Shelter Me Tour” that in Bismarck this past Saturday evening. It was a fantastic evening and had a pretty significant impact on many – even the artists themselves.

Check out this post from Shaun Groves who is one of the artists on this tour.

Thank You, Gwen.

About Pastor Craig Schweitzer

I like to think of myself as a pretty easy going person who seeks to daily discover anew how God is present in my life and in the world in which I live and serve. I am a husband, father, brother, son, friend, pastor, and maybe most significantly – a child of God! My beautiful spouse Wendy and I live in Bismarck, ND with our twin daughters, Ilia and Taegan and our crazy dogs Henri & Sadie. I’ve serve on the staff of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Bismarck, ND since July 2001. I was first called to serve as Music & Worship Minister, in 2010 was called to serve as Pastor of Worship and Youth Education, and in January 2014 was called to serve as Senior Pastor. My professional background is a diverse collection of musical and educational experiences that ranges from live concert production and promotion to recording studios, and live performance to music education. Prior to joining Good Shepherd, I was an Instructor of Music at Bismarck State College and owned and operated a successful teaching studio called 6x6 Guitar Studio. I am a graduate of the University of Mary in Bismarck and Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, CA and was ordained to the Ministry of Word and Sacrament in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America in September 2010. Outside of Good Shepherd, I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends, reading, listening or playing any and all music, a relaxing round of golf, or spending some quiet time with God.
