Meet Nate, Skier, Brewer, Packer Fan, Pastor

I met Nate a couple of months ago after grilling him about his faith. I liked his answers so I visited his place of work and found that I fit in perfectly (although I'm the oldest man there). I'm talking about Reverend Nathan Walters, pastor of Grace Lutheran Church, Wisconsin Synod.

 

Listen in. I hope your biggest take-away from this is that the term "conservative" Christian does not have a political connotation nor does it mean we are holly-roller Bible thumpers looking for people to hit over the head with a Bible.

Minot Today is broadcast over the air on two Minot radio stations every Friday. You can find it on 106.9 FM at 12:15 (Noonish) and again at 4:45 on 1320 AM. Of course I always post the broadcast as a Podcast here as well as my Podcast site at Pod-O-Matic.

Hi Bob... can't say I've ever thought of conservative Christians as people who hit other people over the head with a Bible. Although, I will say, my late brother-in-law was more than a bit of a Bible thumper and a bit aggressive in his approach. As for your pastor... a true Renaissance man... pastors are people, too, with varied interests. So easy to forget they are not one-dimensional.

Hello Bob,  Great interview and each pastor has their way of getting their point across.

Nina Hollander it is easy to forget that pastors are "regular" people too. It was a real lesson learned at my last church when our pastor of 20 some years left the ministry.

Thank you Roy Kelley . I am looking forward to this weekend even though there is a little more on my plate then usual.

Very true Will Hamm and every one has their own way of relaxing when they have the time to after studying, preaching, and leading the church

Wide interests and it looks like he has found the right place to minister and enjoy life as well.

Good morning Bob "RealMan" Timm - thank you for introducing Pastor Nate Walther.  This is what the ministry is.

It's been a delight to get to know him Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 . He does fit into the community well.

I agree Grant Schneider , it's good to have someone "well rounded" in the pulpit who can relate to the rest of us.

Morning Bob.

I wonder when the Packers are playing an early game on Sunday, if he tapes it?

Posted by James Dray, Exceptional Agents, Outstanding Results (Fathom Realty) 6 months ago

Good morning Bob. Will have to catch this a bit later but the reviews on Nate are good. Well maybe not since he is a Packers fan and I live in Bear country. Enjoy your day!

Hi Bob. Interesting interview on your Podcast with Rev. Nate. I believe the Packers might upset the 49ers next weekend. Are these Podcasts generating more business for you?

James Dray the game is actually on in the fellowship room on those days. The bulk of the church are Packer Fans so he is prompt to end services on those days.

Not to worry Wayne Martin , we didn't spend much time on it as I'm a Vikings fan... still .

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Owner of Ward Co. Notary Services, retired Realtor (Ward County Notary Services) 6 months ago

I think they may as well to Jerry Newman . I have mixed emotions on it as I really dislike the Packers BUT I do want our division to go all the way and win the Superbowl.

Thank you very much for your comment on one of my recent posts.

Have an outstanding week.
