First Lutheran Church may have canceled its lutefisk dinner, but for those Northlanders who cannot go without the taste of that lutefisk on their lips, there is a new hope: Elim Lutheran Church will have its own lutefisk dinner.
At least they’ll have meatballs. And if parishioners at First Lutheran Church in Duluth are willing to pay $5.71 for each 1½-inch ball, the church will be OK without the annual lutefisk fundraising dinner today.
Why do some people have to cause trouble and ruin everything that’s good in this world? I ask after reading the Nov. 20 letter, “Call it a holiday parade and celebrate the season.” There’s nothing wrong with the name. It has been called the Christmas City of the North Parade for more than five decades, which never has hurt anybody. Why would it need to change now?
When I think of how different people are I can’t help but notice how far away we’ve strayed from “one nation under God, indivisible.” We have gone from what I call the Folgers Nation to the Keurig Nation, i.e., from everyone working together toward the betterment of our nation, like sharing a pot of coffee (Folgers), to people or groups being concerned only with their own issues and fighting to get their individual needs, like drinking their single-serving special blend (Keurig).
