This past week we made our annual fall pilgrimage to northern Wisconsin where I grew up so many years ago. I was scheduled to speak at the Minnesota Ministry Expo in Minneapolis, so the visit home worked out well.

The farm is overgrown and the house burned down several years ago, but there's a rustic beauty that always warms my heart. My brother who lives in the Twin Cities owns the farm, and he and his wife met us there on Sunday morning, where we had a wonderful cookout brunch along the banks of the Yellow River that runs through the farm.
