Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me. — Psalm 23:4

Although summer is coming to an end it seems odd to think about winter but… It was discussed at our July meeting to organize a winter clothing drive for the Marie Sandvik Center in Minneapolis. We’d like to donate gently used or new items. Dates for collection will be Sept. 25 to Oct. 2. Please bring items such as winter coats, jackets, hooded sweatshirts, sweatshirts, sweaters, and flannel shirts. This clothing drive will include caps, mittens and gloves so we will not collect these items in November. By having this clothing drive earlier, it gives the Center time to gather and organize the items ahead of the winter season. The Center has a truck so they should be able to come and pick up the items collected. This would be a great time to clean out your closets, maybe do some shopping or make a homemade cap to donate!

The WMF serving committee was honored to serve the funeral luncheon for Ruthann Nelson on Wednesday, Aug. 17. She had so many struggles over the past year and now she is at peace. Ruthann held many different positions at Emmanuel. Both she and Clifford were on the Church Council and took wonderful care of our cemetery for many years. Ruthann was a Sunday School teacher and served as our WMF president and secretary. She made many quilts for others to enjoy. She loved to garden and was a wonderful cook. My son, Greg Berg, also had Ruthann as his preschool teacher’s assistant. I display their class picture ornament every Christmas. Ruthann gave so much of her love, time, and talent to others. Her faith was strong and we know she is helping in God’s garden in Heaven. We will continue to keep Clifford in our thoughts and prayers as he has lost his wonderful partner. It saddens me to know that at our WMF meetings we will have another empty chair.
