Soup's on

Bishop Mark Narum of the Western North Dakota Synod and two staff members took to the road last fall.

To connect with rural and city congregations across their synod, they did 12 "Chili with Bishop" events.

They cooked a free meal of chili and chicken soup.

After eating, the bishop offered a Bible study on thankfulness and then everyone was updated on what's happening in the church.
