Pastor Karen officially retired from her synod call as Coordinator of the Food to You Mobile Food Pantry on December 31, 2013. She was ordained September 9, 1978, (see photo with her sisters) and has spent the last three and a half decades blazing trails and praising God as one of the pioneering women pastors first in the LCA, then the ALC, and finally the ELCA. Please join in this afternoon of food and friendship, sharing stories and celebrating God’s grace and Pastor Karen’s retirement. Deuteronomy Duck, PK’s partner throughout her entire ministry will make an appearance. An email RSVP would be appreciated but is not necessary. Greetings and stories may be shared in person at the event, emailed to Pastor Karen at firstname.lastname@example.org, or sent to her at 810 West 6th Street, Sioux Falls, SD, 57104. Video messages are welcome as well.
