Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace Church

The candidate listening session at Amazing Grace Lutheran Church featured a room full of people dedicated to the question of how to best marry public policy and Jesus’ command to love our neighbors as ourselves.

It is gratifying to see close to 150 people spending their evening listening to each other, and the candidates for legislature grapple with these issues.

This gathering highlighted the contrast between two views of government. One sees Christian virtue in passing laws to meet needs. The other insists that virtue is individual, using government as a tool to force others to be generous is neither virtuous, nor helpful.

We live in a free country where such conversations are common, and we should thank God that we have these gatherings.

I am privileged to have been invited, and thank the hosts for putting on this valuable event.

Candidate Debate

The t 2 PM on October 5th, Don Lee and Joe Atkins held a candidate debate in the Sjoberg-Flynn arena at St Thomas Academy in Mendota Heights.

The full video of the debate is below. (direct link here) It’s hard to understand the questions, but the candidates are easy to hear.

Many thanks to St Thomas, and Mr Hoverson and his students for putting this event together, and to John Geroux for recording and preparing the video.

 

Let’s Praise Success

The truth about the policies in the “war on poverty” over the last 60 years is clear. It’s more like a war on success.

Like this gentleman says, things are not better, despite spending hundreds of billions of dollars on often misguided, and even destructive programs.

Real solutions are found closer to home, in individual initiative, personal responsibility, and economic leadership that extols, rather than condemns, success.

This is an excellent ad. Enjoy.

Thanks for the Debate!

Saint Thomas Academy provided their excellent facilities for the Don Lee / Joe Atkins debate. We extend grateful appreciation to the students of St. Thomas and Visitation, who moderated the debate under the guidance of debate coach, Doug Hoverson. Thanks to Representative Atkins for taking part, and thanks to all of you who supported this event by being a respectful and attentive audience. We hope you’ll continue to be actively involved in the election process, researching the issues and supporting the candidates of your choice: local, state and national.

Here are some before and after photos. The debate was filmed. Video will be posted soon.

Neighborhood Meet-and-Greets

m4s0n501

One of the most important things we do in politics is to stand up publicly and say what we believe, and who we support. “Meet-and-Greet” hosts do this on a very personal level when they open their homes and invite their neighbors to get to know Don. We thank the hosts of our recent gatherings: Sandy and Don Honerbrink, Jerry and Mary Ann Reedy, Bob Mairs, Hal Fotsch and Donna Harrington.

If you would like to host a gathering in your neighborhood, please visit our Volunteer page.
