I want you to teach me." The medicine man replied, "Meet me at the river tomorrow morning at dawn." The next morning, the two men arrived and the Medicine Man red the brave out into the deep water. Without warning the Medicine Man took the brave's head and plunged him beneath the watcL The brave thrashed about violently but he could not escape the Medicine Man's grasp. When the elder sensed the brave's strength giving up, he re- lented and let him come up for air. When the brave caught his breath, he asked the elder why he did that. "When you want to know God as much as you wanted a breath of air, come back and I will teach you. Until then, we are wasting our time." This week, we celebrate Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent. Lent is the oldest of the church seasons and is mentioned by many First Century writers. The structure we have today is different, but the spirit of Lent was present. Most Christian churches today find some way to enter into this spirit. The basic disciplines of prayer, fast- ing, and almsgiving become a springboard to a deeper relationship with Christ. Peter Chrysologus, born in the Fourth Century, gave a marvelous sermon on how these three things are joined together. You can read the entire sermon at Do you pray, but it seems like the Lord doesn't hear? Do you fast with no results? Or, do you fast at all? For there to be power in your prayer and fasting routine, mercy (and almsgiving) must be added. There are spiritual laws that affect our lives and everything that we are a part of. These laws work much like the physical laws such as grav- ity. Being more aware of them can deepen your prayer life and sense of peace. In the near future, I will write about some of these. The big question of Lent is, "What keeps me from Christ? What is in my life that pushes Jesus away?" Whether or not we make it "churchy", this might be a good question for every Christian to ask. What is necessary to change? Desire. We need to be like that In- dian brave being held under the water. We have to want Jesus and not want the sin in our lives or the feeling of not being at peace, or not being fulfilled We must want Jesus to fill our emptiness. God uses our experience of sin and foolishness to draw us to Him- self. We have to taste the bitter fruit we harvest in our lives to know there is another way, that there is another seed to sow. God uses every- thing. Nothing is rejected. Even our sin has a purpose. So, never con- demn yourself or others. This is where mercy comes into play. As Peter Chrysologus teaches, "Mercy is to fasting as rain is to the earth. However much you may cultivate your heart, clear the soil of your nature, root out vices, sow virtues, if you do not release the springs of mercy, your fasting will bear no fruit." And neither will our prayer, which is fed by our fasting. So, whatever you do for Lent, whether it is giving up M&M's or that you'll read the Gospels this year, let it all be done for love of 5n the w esus" Give Him a bigger share f yur life" Yu'll be glad yu didA Jesus, you are our all, you are mercy itself, have mercy on us an.: i' hole world. . ......... .,),...dr fl ,&) v .. i Musings from the Museum I By Norm Sheista On this date in the State of Min- nesota History Files followed by an event from the Big Stone County His- tory Files: Feb. 10, 1806-Lieutenant Zebulon M. Pike, exploring the Upper Missis- sippi territory included in the recent Louisiana Purchase, arrives at the North West company post on Leech Lake. Incensed that the British Union Jack still flies there, he orders it shot down and replaced with the Stars and Stripes. Pike was something of an in- grate, however, as he enjoyed the hos- pitality of the post both before and after the incident. British fur posts remain in the region until the end of the War of 1912. Feb. 10,1969:Lundberg Const-ruc- tion Cabinet Shop and Warehouse burned. This was the former Steiner and Rausch Granite Shop moved to land by the Minnesota River on High- way 12. The closest water supply was the river, however, the building was a total loss so it was rebuilt on the same locality. Feb. 11. 1811-Henry Jackson is born in the state of Virginia. He would move to St. Paul in 1842 and rent a place from Pierre "Pig's Eye" Parrant. A trader and merchant, he would serve as the city's first postmaster and its first justice of the peace. Fh. 11, 1944-Henry W. Frey of Beardsley writes to the Big Stone Can- ning Company from the war in New Guinea that as a mess sergeant, he was pleasantly surprised to find "good" corn in their outfit's food (thanks to Big Stone Can Co.!) -Minnesota is the first state to declare Abraham Lincoln's birthday a legal holiday. -Clinton organized a City Band with President Carl Olson, Vice President Courtney Krook, Secre- tary Loye Englund and Treasurer Clarence Condit, Leader R.M. Beaty. Feb. 13, 1909-President Theodore Roosevelt establishes Superior Na- tional Forest. Six weeks later Ontario's government responds in kind by creat- ing Quetico Provincial Forest Reserve. Exploitative practices are restricted in these areas, thereby preserving the beauty of lakes and trees for future generations. -Fire destroyed four buildings in Clinton. Feb. 14, 1852-Mankato, a variation of Mahkato, the Dakota word for the Blue Earth River, is founded. Feb. 14.1884-First Otrey Township meeting held at the W.B. Dow home.

Feb. 15, 1870-A groundbreaking ceremony for the Northern Pacific Railroad line is held at Northern Pa- cific Junction, later called Carlton. The line to the Pacific Ocean, completed on Sept. 8, 1883, with the same spike used to begin construction in Minnesota, is the first single-company transconti- nental line. Feb. 15, 1963-Jehovah Witness Congregation organized in Ortonville. In 1969 the Bob Dybvig home (513 Otto Avenue) nearly disappears after blizzard No. Seven (of 12) that year. Feb. 16,1860-The Minnesota State Agricultural Society is incorporated, replacing the territorial society that had previously existed.
