My name is Tom Schlund. I've been on a series of adventures in life that have taken me from Wisconsin to Nebraska to Montana to Texas to Missouri and now to Iowa. Along the way I've picked up a degree in Business Administration from the University of Nebraska - Kearney, a masters degree in education from Texas Tech University, experience working in residential life at the University of Missouri, an M.Div from Concordia Seminary in St. Louis and now I serve as Senior Pastor at Trinity Lutheran Church in Algona, IA.
I love learning and find many things fascinating including current events, politics, human dynamics, and theology. I also love teaching and mediating and enjoy bringing people together to better understand each other.
I haven't fully decided what I want to do with this site, but I think for now you'll find links to and commentary on the things I find interesting. Maybe you'll find them interesting too. Click on the tab above "Exploring a little about a lot" to read more. I'd love to hear your comments and feedback. Feel free to engage in the conversation even if you disagree with me. All I ask is that we're all respectful in our conversations!
