Newspaper Columns

This page lists and links to my newspaper articles in the religion column of my local newspaper.

The Community section of the Sidney Herald, Sidney, Montana, includes a Religion page on Sundays. The page carries a column contributed by a group of local columnists. In 2012, the contributors were coordinated by Rev. Dr. Matt Richard, then Pastor of the Sidney Lutheran Brethren Church, and now Pastor of Zion Lutheran Church (LCMS) in Gwinner, North Dakota. Pastor Richard invited me to join the group and contribute columns. Since 2013, the contributors are coordinated by Rev. Jordan Hall, Pastor of Fellowship Church of Sidney. This page provides links to my columns reproduced here. The dates below the titles are the dates of publication in the newspaper.
