32Recollections: The Pastorand Important Early Influences
My rst memories go back to the farm where myparents, Aloys and Ottilia Reiser, raised me, my brother,and my three sisters during the Great Depression. Myfather was a truck farmer, meaning the vegetables andmeat he raised was trucked into the Minneapolis FarmersMarket for sale every day. Farming was a difcult wayto support a family during the Great Depression yet myfather never faltered in his faith that God would providefor us.

ing, presiding over baptisms, marriages and funerals,lifting up the needy, helping the poor.Since my ordination, I have traveled around theglobe, witnessed dramatic world events, built upGod’s church to the best of my ability, and pausedonce a week to jot down my thoughts on it all. In thisrst section, I share some of my columns to give youan idea about the early inuences that shaped me.
