This sidesplitting, uplifting peek into the lives of the rural Norwegian Lutherans, who audiences first fell in love with in 2005, is the sixth chapter of the story begun in the original "Church Basement Ladies." "Rise Up O Men" features familiar faces: Mrs. Mavis Gilmerson, Mrs. Vivian Snustad and Mrs. Karin Engleson who would never leave the basement kitchen unattended, of course (who would make bars for the youth group meeting?). But as they busy themselves with preparations for their church's participation in the town’s 1964 Centennial Celebration, we get to see their coming and goings from the eyes of the menfolk, who have their own problems to solve. Karin’s husband, Elroy, farmer Carl and Great War vet Arlo are joined in brotherhood by series staple Pastor E.L. Gunderson. Their camaraderie unites them as they deal with furnace salesmen, looming retirement, rival Protestant denominations, the pastor’s bad jokes, and Arlene’s even-worse cooking.

BY RITA PEKI It was a merry occasion for the people of Minimb-Moika village outside Mt Hagen when all church denominations converged at the Evangelical Lutheran Church last Tuesday, the first day of the year for a thanksgiving day. The Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Moika village brought money, garden food and prominent leader for WHP, Wai Rapa and his family gave a pig as thanksgiving to the Lord. Good News director Reverend Teng Tengdui said the main reason for hosting an all denomination thanksgiving day was to celebrate and honour the Gospel of Jesus Christ into their province and community. The Bible reading shared by Rev Tengdui was taken from Leviticus 27:30-34 which talked about giving a tithe of everything we earn to the Lord for His unconditional love and blessings in our lives. “This is a new year and the Moika community wants to give thanks to the Lord for His blessings upon their lives last year therefore, we must please Him in all our conduct by giving back … [Read more...] about Churches in Mt Hagen start new year with thanksgiving

In Western Christianity, it is celebrated on 1 November by the Roman Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion, the Methodist Church, the Lutheran Church, and other Protestant churches. Christian celebration of All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day stems from a belief that there is a powerful spiritual bond between those in heaven (the Church triumphant), and the living (the Church militant). In Catholic theology, the day commemorates all those who have attained the beatific vision in Heaven. The origin of All Saints' Day may date back to a Greek Christian tradition from the 4th century, when a festival was held to honour saints and martyrs on the Sunday following Pentecost. The first recorded All Saints’ Day occurred on 13 May 609 CE when Pope Boniface IV accepted the Pantheon in Rome as a gift from the Emperor Phocas. The Pope dedicated the day as a holiday to honour the Blessed Virgin and all the martyrs. In 835 CE, during the reign of Pope Gregory III, the festival was moved to 1 … [Read more...] about Why is November 1st a public holiday in Portugal?
