March 4, 2007 Guest Knute Ogren
Program:  Take A Breath

Knute Ogren (far right) shown here with ... serves as Coordinator of Congregational Life.

In 2002, David Piper and Knute Ogren, two church workers at Emanuel Lutheran Church
in Hartford, began brainstorming ways to help young people learn more about those who were dying of hunger. It occurred to them that they could bring a bunch of guys together to make music and create a CD.

Their idea was that every penny donated in exchange for the CD would be used to fight hunger and that all the money raised would be given to the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) World Hunger Appeal.

Knute serves as Coordinator of Congregational Life, challenging the status quo, supporting staff and lay leaders, and empowering members to help make a difference.
