A 'desert father-like' story.

About Bishop Carlson

I heard a story about him that when he was instructing a young couple who were preparing for marriage, he told them that it was inappropriate for them to live together before the wedding.

They had been living together for some time and their two incomes were necessary to keep their residence. Bishop Carlson said the young man was welcome to live at the Bishop's house with him, free of charge. He meant it.

The couple eventually found a way to live apart until marriage and kept the residence.

That's a good Abba, don't you think?

    Christ-like is what it is!

  2. That's my kind of Bishop! Too bad that he doesn't have more time in Saginaw. Because Saginaw really needs him after what they have gone through.

    Then we could have lobbied to get him back here in St Paul-Minneapolis.
