We are SO blessed. For the first time in more than 60 years, Lutheran Social Services of North Dakota will move into a new permanent home in Fargo in March 2015. The building, known as the Center for Healing, Help and Hope, was designed not only to be a vessel to hold our work, but also to be a beacon of hope to everyone who passes by. If you are in the Fargo-Moorhead area, keep an eye out for the big blue dove that will be watching over your travels on I-94. It is my hope that, over time, that dove becomes a symbol of healing, help and hope for people who may not even know who it is that occupies the building the dove is perched on! Vice Chair, Halliday Why a dove? Lutheran Social Services has used this simple bird as a symbol of its ministry for decades. While I don’t know for certain, I believe we adopted this symbol because the dove is almost universally understood to show both the hand and presence of God in the world.

That his spirit is ever present, even in times of trouble, in times of uncertainty, and in times of new beginning. But even beyond the biblical stories we know so well, doves have a centuries-old history of helping people find their way. “In fact, from ancient Near East records to nautical practices as current as the 19th century, sailors the world over used doves to help them find their way and navigate toward land.” Funny isn’t it—today our work at LSSND focuses on helping people thrive, which is all about helping people find their way. My hope is that the social ministry of Lutheran Social Services can today help people find their way, as doves have done for centuries. We abound in hope. We cherish the opportunity to make a difference. Together in ministry, Jessica Thomasson CEO * “The Enduring Symbolism of Doves: From ancient icon to Biblical mainstay”.

Working together with other faith-based disaster organizations is beneficial to all, especially those impacted. Last spring, the United Methodist Church – Dakotas Conference Disaster Response – used our two equipped tool trailers to finalize their rebuild in Minot.
