Saying it with animals

James A. Banner, pastor of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, Springfield, Mo., thought he was attending a church potluck/talent show this summer but soon realized it was really a surprise "roast" to honor his 30 years in ministry. Not only did the congregation communicate with words that they held him in high esteem, they purchased in his name two herds of goats, two cows, a few pigs and various other animals through ELCA World Hunger.
