This topic has been written about by many people of all faith traditions and different religions. We all have our take on it and interpretations to fit our faith and our lives. One thing that strikes me however, is the similarity across the spectrum Of religions. Yes, our theology, our stories, our worship, and our sacred texts are dif- ferent, but from Christianity to Buddhism, Hinduism to Islam, when we speak of the spiritual life, we have a very similar tale to tell. Generally speaking, there are the two halves of life. They are both necessary and they are both good, as far as they go. They are not chrono- logical. Just as there are geniuses who graduate from college by the age of 12, there are spiritual geniuses who understand the spiritual life and they see God in everyone and everything. They move into mature reli- gion, or union with God, at a very early age. There are also people who are old chronologically, but very immature spiritually. This causes prob- lems as they age. They cling to the things of the first half of life and grow increasingly unhappy as they age and approach death. If you would allow me a small tangent, one thing that can remedy your fear of death is to buy your plot. Put up your stone. Put your name on it and visit it regularly. Stand there and look at the spot where your body will rest. Think about the people who will someday be looking at your grave while you are no longer here. If you feel a fear, this is OK., Talk to the Lord about it. He has it all taken care of, you know. Let go. Let go of all your clinging to the first half of life. Let go of your life. It is not about you anyway. Be free. If the first half of life is the Ten Commandments, the second half of life is the Eight Beatitudes. The Ten Commandments are a prescription. God is saying, "Do this, don't do that." The Beatitudes are a description. They describe the disciple and they are about being. God is saying, "If you are my disciple, you are pure, poor, merciful, meek, you will mourn and be persecuted. Your attitude in all this? JOY! Why? Because you see Me, you know Me, and desire to be with me above all other things. You live in My Kingdom NOW! You love others and see Me in them too, even wicked, vile people, because all are created in My image and you see my divine image stamped everywhere because I am everywhere and in all things." In the middle of these two is what some people call the "Loyal Sol- dier." The loyal soldier's job is to keep one secure, safe, and acceptable. He is very necessary in the first half of life. By the time most of us reach our 40's, the lessons of life and the sufferings we encounter pull us in a different direction. They tug us away from our black and white under- standing and simplistic illusions. Our soul yearns for deeper understand- ing and paradox. These struggles are called by some, a "dark night of the soul." They are occasions for choices and decisions. By examining these decisions and how we handle events in life, we can determin where we are in the spiritual life, or "our level." We don't want to approach this as a prideful manner however, as if to say I am better than you be- cause I am at level 5 and you are at level 2. No. My goal will be to make this a tool for you to understand and heal and to become free inside to let go of the first half of life so you can really live and truly be free. Until next week, peace be with you in all things. Page 10 TRINITY LUTHERAN CHURCH Ortonville Pastor Dennis B.

Children who had seen Robert Halbrook at the school, I am sure en- joyed him again at either show or both shows at the Sports and Leisure Show.

She comes from Mankato and her father was a gravedigger. The book is great and she will have copies available for sale that evening also. A new craft book is "Step-by-Step Fabric Dyeing Project Book: 30 Excit- ing and Original Designs to Create: How to,Make Beautiful Furnishings, Gifts, and Decorations Using a Range of Dyeing and Marbling Techniques, Shown in 280 Step-by-Step Photo- graphs" by Susie Stokoe. New in Business and Economics is Heidi Hanna's "Stressaholic". This ho- listic approach to taming Stress ex- plains what chronic stress does to the body, mind and spirit and offers simple tips and techniques for changing daily patterns and shifting min~sets to im- prove natural rhythms and change physiological responses to stress. New in cooking is Goran Soderin and George Strachal's "Baking Sour- dough Bread: Dozens of Recipes for Artisan Loaves, Crackers, and Sweet Breads". Explains how to prepare a sourdough starter and keep an active leaven with regular feeding while demonstrating a variety of flours and ingredients and sharing recipes for a number of classic, and unique loaves. sure open e MNsure announced the launch of "20 Days, 20 Stories" to highlight the success Minnesotans have experienced in purchasing comprehensive, afford- able health insurance coverage, and to reinforce the end of open enrollment on March 31. "All across the state, we are hearing from folks who are finding better, more affordable health insurance policies on MNsure," said interim CEO Scott Leitz. "Many of these people are get- ting coverage for the first time, and we think it is important to highlight the success that more than 115,000 Min- nesotans have experienced so far in en- rolling through MNsure." In addition to sharing stories, the campaign is aimed at reminding Min- nesotans about the upcoming March 31 enrollment deadline. This is the last day you can purchase health insurance inside or outside of MNsure until the next open enrollment period begins on Nov. 15, without facing a potential tax penalty. Enrollment in Medical Assis- tance, MinnesotaCare and the Small Business Health Option Program (SHOP) run year-round. "The March 31 deadline is less than three weeks away. We want to make sure every Minnesotan that wants health insurance gets it b~f0re that deadline," said Leitz. "20 Days, 20 Stories" will kick off with Mark Hurley, a husband and fa- ther of three living in Excelsior. Mark purchased health insurance on the open market for years, because it is not of- fered through his employment. Mark's old 'plan had very little coverage and carried a $12,000/year deductible. Through MNsure, Mark was able to find a plan with cheaper premiums and a $2,000/year deductible. Mark's chil- dren also now have free preventive dental coverage as part of his new MN- sure plan. "This is a game changer for middle class families," said Mark. "This will save my familythousands of dollars when it comes to medical expenses this year." "20 Days, 20 Stories" can be found on the MNsure.org homepage.
