We participated in the installation of the Rev. Kristen Kuempel as bishop of the Eastern Washington-Idaho Synod. She was elected at the synod assembly in May in Spokane. She began her new call September 1st. The installation was held at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Spokane on Saturday, September 16, 2018. Carolyn processed with the pastors, and Dave processed with the deacons. It was an honor to be a part of such an important occasion. Blessings to Bishop Kuempel!
