Help identify a new bishop to lead our synod

main image

Good Monday morning to you,

Northwest Washington Bishop Kirby Unti is retiring and all of us are being asked to identify characteristics we would like to see in a new leader that oversees Bethany and other churches in northwestern Washington state. Take a few moments to take a survey at www.research.net/r/NWWashingtonSBE. Your input is important. A new bishop will be elected at the 2019 Synod Assembly in the spring. Questions? See David Swartling or visit lutheransnw.org.

Morning, all

“Antonia’s War: An Escape from Estonia to America,” is our featured book for December in the Bethany library, and also is available on Amazon and at Eagle Harbor Book Co. for about $8. Truitt’s mother, Antonia Annus, lived through World War I, the Russian Revolution, a war for independence in Estonia and World War II. She and her family ultimately came to America.

In the photo below, Maimu Truitt is the girl on the left of her mother.
