All we can do is love

I am Pastor Dan Norwood, and I am excited to have been asked to contribute to these Pastor corner reflections. I have been in Hiawatha for just over a year, and I love the community, the neighborhoods, the beautiful maples, and of course the people. I am married to Laura, who is a nurse working for BCBS and lives in Topeka during the week. We have one adult son who lives in Topeka and works in the Pharmacy Department for Walgreens. I live in Hiawatha with my two Corgis, Bertie and Poppy, who I walk twice a day rain or shine, hot or cold. They are my prayer walk companions.
