FARGO—Darla Julin's first cakes were doll-size. The tiny Easy Bake Oven creations grew over the years into wedding cakes and eventually a bakery.
MOORHEAD—On a typical day, 700 to 1,000 people pass through the doors of the Moorhead Public Library here. Numbers are similar at Fargo Public Library and West Fargo Public Library, too. Some people go for the books, and others visit the library for meetings, to play board games, learn a language or take a class. Area libraries offer more than traditional resources, and most of it is free.
MOORHEAD—Dressers, financial donations, window coverings—the Rev. Sue Koesterman continues ticking items off her mental list. "... so folks can come into spaces that feel a little bit more like home," she says. "I would be remiss if I didn't at least plant a seed for needs." Koesterman, the pastor at Fargo's Elim Lutheran Church, will say goodbye to her congregation of a decade when she assumes her new role as executive director of Churches United for the Homeless here on May 16.
FARGO—Terry Mortenson, a historian and theologian, will speak at various locations in Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo on Sunday, April 10, Monday, April 11, and Tuesday, April 12. Mortenson will present about creation for the "Answers in Genesis: Christian Speaking Series" sponsored by The Red River Lutheran School Association. The schedule for his free talks is: Sunday, April 10 • 9:30 a.m., "Creation vs. Evolution: Why It Matters" at St. Andrew Lutheran Church, 1005 1st St., West Fargo
WEST FARGO—Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, 210 5th Ave. W., will host a Serra dinner at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 14. The evening will include dinner and a time for questions and discussion about how parents can support their child if their child is thinking about a religious vocation or priesthood. Parents whose sons or daughters are currently in seminary or a religious community will be available to talk. The event is free and open to the public. To register, call (701) 356-7956.
FARGO—Black skinny jeans, oversized sweater, flowy top—on most days, that's Laura Caylor's uniform. The 21-year-old North Dakota State University junior sticks with a bohemian look that she updates with trendy pieces. I spotted Caylor downtown and liked her easy style that she says is partly inspired by the relaxed fashion she sees on beach vacations. Describe your style. Laid-back and a little edgy. What are you wearing today? A Free People sweater, tank, jeans and necklace and my shoes are Steve Madden from DSW.
FARGO – I like clothes and shoes. A lot. Remember when I said delivery drivers know my address? Not lying.
FARGO – Most sexually active people will have HPV at some point in their life. HPV—human papilloma virus—is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, with more than 14 million new infections occurring each year.
FARGO — The public is invited to an interfaith Scripture study from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, April 6, at the North Dakota State University Lutheran Center, 1201 13th Ave. N. Using theologian Matthew Fox's book, "One River, Many Wells," the study will look at what different religions — including Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, the Baha'i Faith and Native American spirituality — have to say about a particular theme, such as revelation.
MOORHEAD — Christian humorist Jan Struck will speak at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, April 16, at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, 1000 14th St. S., for its annual Spring Women's Event.
