Shadows: 1922 directed by Tom Forman staring Lon Chaney, who portrays Chinese laundryman Yen Sin who is shipwrecked by a raging storm and tossed ashore in a small New England town. Sin is viewed as a heathen and treated as less-than-human by the majority of the “good Christian” town-folk. The exceptions are the minister (Harrison Ford) and a lovely young widow (Marguerite De La Motte) of a cruel fisherman. Yen Sin plays matchmaker for the young couple, and then defends them when plans of ill-intent come to light. Filmed in a period when Asian characters were only villains or comic relief, this movie dared to have an Asian protagonist. Although it was originally poorly received, it was later awarded a special commendation from the National Board of Review. Lon Chaney received international acclaim the following year for his portrayal of Quasimodo in The Hunchback Of Notre Dame.

Over the past recent weeks, we’ve had to opportunity to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. On October 22nd, many of you attended the Martin Luther Hymn Fest followed by the Oktoberfest. The following Sunday, October 29th, our worship service focused on the Reformation which was led by four ordained pastors from the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Many of you asked for the potato salad, sauerkraut, and red cabbage recipes while others asked for access to the group photos taken of Reverend Jonathan Kern, Rev. Dr. Dennis Lucero, Reverend Robert Mann, and Reverend Jim Rivett. Below you’ll find the pictures and links to the recipes. We also provided links to youtube if you’d like to relive any of the music and commentaries from the Hymn Fest!
