Watching an African church service on DVD in Leona Troftgruben’s Grand Forks home, I wanted to dance with the worshipping Cameroonians. I wanted to beat their drums and sing their songs in their language.

Breathtakingly beautiful! That’s the only way to describe the splendor surrounding the front door at Bethany Lutheran Church, six miles north of East Grand Forks.

If Rachel Scott had been allowed to live, she’d be 27 now. In high school, she was known to stand up to bullies who knocked books from the hands of a handicapped student. And she befriended new students who sat alone in the lunchroom.

Troy Erickson has his own version of a unique coat. Unlike Joseph’s in the Bible, which was colorful, Troy’s is black. He got it on sale a season or two ago but never has worn it. Despite being brand-new, the coat now sports a healthy layer of dust along the shoulder line.

I think most people have a dream deep within. Maybe it’s to own a business, run the Twin Cities Marathon or ride a Harley Davidson from coast to coast. Maybe it’s to go into the ministry as a second career. Maybe it’s to be God’s Little Drummer Girl!

Dad has been gone for 20 years, and the barn even longer than that.
But sometimes, I still see him milking, and sometimes, I still smell the hay.

I’m thinking today of Project 24, which began as the vision of one man, the Rev. Walter Obare, Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Kenya. The goal of Project 24, launched in December 2006, is to provide financial support for the building of 24 new orphan rescue centers in Kenya.

The last time Michael W. Smith played the Alerus Center was in December 2004. For the first half of that concert, my husband and I sat on risers a good distance from the stage. On Sunday night, we’ll see this great Christian musician/singer from a different vantage point -- and we'll be accompanied by a very special duo.
