Everyone has a chance to begin anew

March 29, 2014
Rev. Debra Ball-Kilbourne , Minot Daily News

Many years ago during seminary, when my husband and I served a congregation in Hartley, Iowa, we enjoyed the friendships of many farm families. One night, a farmer walked into a meeting, took his hat off and let out a loud, exhausted breath. "I hate pigs!" he exclaimed. When the laughter subsided, he regaled the group with a blow-by-blow report of all the things that had gone into his day of "tending pigs." I had never known that tending pigs could ever be viewed as humorous.
