Weekend of August 23, 2014
Join us for the 2014 Women's Enrichment Weekend, with JoAnn Bunke presenting the keynote and Pastor Curtis Seefeldt in the afternoon addressing Alzheimer's and how it effects families.
“I don’t know what to do. My mother keeps asking me why Dad is late coming home from work. Do I have to tell her that he died seven years ago?” (From WELS Special Ministries brochure by Rev. Curt Seefeldt).
Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia subtly rob people of many of their memories. Pastor Curtiss Seefeldt joins us to discuss Alzheimer’s disease and its effect on our families.
Pastor Seefeldt comes to us from The Lutheran Home Association, a network of communities throughout Minnesota and Wisconsin, which offers varying levels of care, from independent living to assisted living and memory care (or it may cover all levels of care).
Pastor Seefeldt serves as resource development counselor to the residents and tenants at The Lutheran Home Association. He has more than 30 years of pastoral experience, serving congregations in Kansas, South Dakota and Minnesota after receiving his Master of Divinity from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary in Mequon. He has chaired the Dakota-Montana District Board for Parish Services, the Huron (South Dakota) Advocacy Program and Minnesota District Lutheran Institutional Ministries Association. He believes Christian ministry is about serving people and sharing the message of Jesus' love.
What does the Bible say about peace and trusting in God's plan? How do people struggle with pain and hurt and how we can all recognize and help them (having three octive voice compassion). Why is it important to tell your kids and others about Jesus.
I will tell the story of our own devastating loss and how we still struggle after 4 years. But I also talk about hope; how God is always by our side and how you can witness even in the midst of pain and sorrow. The underlying basis for all of us is, “As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord”
Ann Parker is a graduate of Dr. Martin Luther College, and currently works as a substitute teacher at MN Valley Lutheran High School in New Ulm, MN. She and her husband Gary, along with their 6 children (5 are adopted), attend St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in St. James, MN.
She writes, “My presentation focuses on how fetal alcohol syndrome is passed from one generation to the next, even though it is not genetically hereditary. Our five adopted children come from a family with a long history of alcohol and drug abuse (at least 3 generations). My degree is in elementary education. I have taken seminars on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and done my research. Living with and training our children has been my best teacher.”
