As I wrote last week, we have some amazing seminars for the public this weekend regarding mental health. Chisago Lake Lutheran Church in Center City is holding three seminars beginning today, and running on February 12 and 19. The title is Mental Health & Faith with guest speaker Rev. Cary Wilkerson.
On Saturday, Zion Lutheran church in Chisago City is hosting a Mental Wellness Fair that will feature two sessions that begin at 8 am and run until 1pm. A free lunch and refreshments will be served as well.
Both series are amazing and I would invite any and all to attend. Whether we admit it or not, just about all of us are touched by mental illness in some capacity. As I stated last week, I battled depression myself a while back and attended something similar to these programs. They are amazing.
On February 16 (Celebration of the Lakes weekend), the entire county is invited to take part in the first ever “Grumpy Old Men” worship service.
The service will be held at Chisago Lake Luthern Church in Center City which is where part of the movie was filmed. The service will be movie themed so you are invited to wear flannel, jeans and fishing hats. The service is at 9 am.
Speaking of Celebration of the Lakes, it is getting quite close. All signs point to a go for all events. Please see the schedule of events on page 8 for a full list of happenings during the celebration. The Press will be printing a special section next week where you will get a more in depth feel of the celebration in its entirety.
So the Super Bowl came and went. The game itself was entertaining but that is where it ended (for me anyways). The commercials were so-so, other than the Bill Murray Groundhog Day commercial was solid.
Then there was the halftime show. Where to start... Believe me folks I am as far away from being a prude as there is, but there were parts of that show that made me squeamish with my wife in the same room. It seems every year they have to push the envelope just a tad bit further. I can’t imagine watching that show with my kids.
Next year we will skip the half time show and just head to the nearest strip bar, it will probably be cleaner (less objectifying) than the show on TV. Hmm.. I guess I am close to being a prude... sorry.
