    HILDEGARD BAUH’S 100TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION On Feb. 23rd, we celebrated our PoP family member Hildegard Bauh’s 100th birthday with cake and refreshments provided by her family between services! Hildegard was born in Germany before she immigrated to America as a young girl with her family. Following new

    found friends to Wisconsin, they settled here in Appleton where she eventually first became a member of Zion Lutheran Church. Joining PoP with her family in 1969, Hildegard has been an ‘actively engaged’ member ever since, sharing her faith in many ways here at PoP. If you’d like to hear her tell a little about her faith story, check out the video posted on the front/bottom page of our website (www.popappleton.org). Thank you Hildegard for sharing your journey with us all!

    Lets’ Share the Hope that is Within Us!

    “Always be ready to make your defense to anyone who demands from you an accounting for the hope that is in you;”

    1 Peter 3:15 (NRSV)

    Some topics I can talk about endlessly: Star Trek, NASA, being an insulin-dependent diabetic, the Cleveland Browns,

    DSLR photography, camping, pictures of my grandson. I can talk about all of these things because I have personal

    experience with them and they are important to me. I’ve lived them. Also, my expertise didn’t happen overnight, but a

    little bit at a time. All these are very personal to me, but none are ultimately life-changing. They are fun, but they don’t

    give me ultimate hope. Only my faith in Jesus does that. That by far is the most central to who I am, but, at times, it is

    the most difficult to talk about.

    That last statement may surprise you. You might say, “But you’re a pastor! That’s your job! Don’t you do that every

    day?” Yes, I do! And now having been a pastor for most of my adult life, I’ve found it much easier to talk about my

    faith than I did years ago, because I intimately know the Bible and what I believe as a Lutheran Christian. But also

    because I have heard and met people with a variety of faith stories and experiences, which is always shaping my im-

    age of how Christ reveals himself to me every day. Yet that comfort with sharing my personal faith didn’t come auto-

    matically or easily. It required practice and prayer. So when I read the words of St. Peter, who was in Rome, du
