Greetings from the District Office
Let me introduce myself...and this e-newsletter, Mission Update. I'm Rev. Peter Kelm, the new Mission Executive for your South Wisconsin District, after 13 years in the parish-11 of those years here in SWD (five years at Immanuel, Brookfield and six at Trinity, Freistadt). I'm a graduate of the St. Louis Seminary (M.Div. '99 and STM '13), although I did some graduate work in Ft. Wayne, too. My wife, Angie, and I have three children: Jacob (13), Caleb (12) and Chloe (8). We live in Cedarburg. I know many of you; I look forward to getting to know many more.
The purpose of this bi-monthly newsletter is simply to share what your brothers and their congregations are doing in SWD to proclaim the Good News of a Shepherd who laid down His life for the sheep-only to take it up again. That proclamation, centered in Word and Sacrament weekly in all of our congregations, extends to our communities, country, and world as we are sent forth to confess the powerful Gospel that other sheep might listen to His voice.
