Salem Lutheran Women

The women of Salem Lutheran Church enjoyed an inspirational retreat on Saturday, Aug. 14.

Their Bible Study was from Luke 18 on the parable of “The Persistent Widow and the Unjust Judge.” Each guest read the Bible verse at their place setting, which had been clipped from the front page of many Albert Lea Tribunes. Prayer rocks were also given to all, which worked into the theme for the day.

Everyone was given a chance to tell a memory of how they prayed as children, and many things were learned as our members told of customs and prayers used in their homes while growing up. Readings on prayer, moderated by Marianne Depoppe, were given by Helen Weik, Kathy DePoppe and Lots Anderson.

Pauline Hall read an article on how Jesus taught His disciples to pray The Lord’s Prayer — an example for all to follow.

A special DVD was enjoyed by all when Clayton Reedstrom and Robert Staddon played on two grand pianos. Clayton and Robert had met in Indianapolis, Ind., during their Christian Ministry and shared their love for music. They met again some time later when serving a Christian Ministry in Chicago. It was then they made the DVD entitled “Inspiration on the Ivories.”

A salad luncheon was served by Magdalene Circle.
