Personal Energy Transportation on Fox 9 news!
Robbinsdale United Church of Christ is so glad to lift up the ministry of PET MN. Jim Conn, Ken Mallak and John Rost are all in leadership with this mission that provides transportation and dignity to folks without the use of their legs. In celebration of the 50,000th PET cart, FOX 9 news interviewed Jim and the folks at the PET shop in NE Minneapolis. We are very proud of this important and life saving ministry.

A Pastoral Letter On Racism: A New Awakening
"The extrajudicial killing of black and brown men and women by police officers is in and of itself reason to cry out against injustice. But the targeted shooting of police officers is also reason to mourn and lament the use of violence. We cannot conflate and equate one kind of tragedy with another or simplify complex realities that cannot be 'fixed' overnight. We should not be creating more strife by participating in attempts to make this an 'us against them' conflict, nor should we allow ourselves to look away from the harsh realities of this historic moment pretending that racism is not at the core of the injustice."

We Promise Our Love, Support, and Care, Part II: Adolescent Mental Health
Our church promises our "love, support, and care" to every child that we baptize. How does a congregation do that with a youth that has anxiety or depression? How does a congregation do that with a youth that is cutting or engaging in other forms of self-harm? How can we, as a community of faith, help our friends and loved ones heal from mental illness and overcome the stigma of mental illness?
