Pastor Kim Henning to Lead Book Discussion on "The Pastor" for the Zimmer Forum, Tuesday March 12, 12:15 PM at Silver Lake College

Posted on March 08 2013

Silver Lake College of the Holy Family and Saint Francis of Assisi Parish in Manitowoc are delighted to present the Father Bill Zimmer Forum, a book group for people of faith, on Tuesday, March  12, at 12:15 pm in the College Chapel. Participants are invited to come for lunch and fellowship in the College Café before the discussion. They may bring their own bagged lunch, or food is available for purchase starting at 11:30 am.

Pastor Kim Henning of Grace Congregational United Church of Christ in Two Rivers will lead a discussion on The Pastor, a memoir by Eugene H. Peterson. After being asked to found a new church, Pastor Peterson found himself asking “What does it mean to be a pastor?” With reflection on his 30 year career, Peterson makes a statement on the contemporary trials and tribulations of his vocation, concluding that to be a pastor means “paying attention and calling attention to ‘what is going on right now’ between men and women, with each other, and with God.”

A graduate of Lakeland College and Eden Theological Seminary, Pastor Kim began serving Grace Congregational Church in 1988 after six years of service to Lake View United Church of Christ in Iowa. He is married with three children and resides in Two Rivers.
