Guest Rev. Jared Melius, pastor of Mount Zion Lutheran Church in Denver, Colorado, speaks about what All Saints’ Day is in our Lutheran tradition and how to talk with children about the saints who have gone before us. What do we as Lutherans mean when we talk about “saints”? Do people become angels when they die, and do their bodies disappear? Rev. Melius address these things and how to talk with children about heaven and eternal life.
If you haven’t had Director of Programming Andy Bates’s smoked mac and cheese from scratch (yes, including the noodles), you’re missing out on a magical food experience. Although he’ll gladly go venturing through the woods in his Vivobarefoot Trail Freaks (those are shoes), he’ll also stay happily busy automating every possible thing in his home while eating cherry cheesecake brownies made by his wife, Lauren. As a Theatre major, don’t ask him to pick a favorite play, but you may find him hanging out with his adorable son watching Trolls or listening to bluegrass or the latest audiobook on biomechanics.
