Lauren Egdahl

     When i hear the word "Christian" i think of Lauren Egdahl.  This man is the living definition of the Word, and i know no other person on this earth more Christ like than this dear soul.
He is high on my hero's list of role models.  He started out to be a hospital administrator but ended up becoming a Lutheran Minister instead, much to the surprise of his wife Mary, who was getting all set to be the wife of a man with a job that only lasted from 8:00 am to 5:00pm.   I became friends with Lauren when he answered the call from our church for a new Pastor.   He is a brilliant man who believes in doing what you preach and involves himself to make things better for everybody.  He even spent a time as Mayor of our city, when he was Vice Mayor and had to stand in for the Mayor occasionally.
