He and his family prayed on the next steps to Come. Borg’s first Sunday conducting services was Sept. 20. On Nov. 15 he Was officially installed as pastor. One of the challenges of this pandemic, Borg said, is that he is a strong proponent of in-person services. He said online is a poor substitute for the full worship service. They have continued to worship in both churches and hold Bible stud- ies to deepen the faith whilethe pandemic has taken its toll on the area. “I think there’s a crisis of faith in our world today,” he said. “We need to get back to proclaiming the word of God.” ‘ Borg said that they have held Advent services, including a live Na— tivity at the Kjelland farm, and the church plans to host a candlelight serv- ice on Christmas Eve. 1 The Nativity in the barn echoes back to experiences he had in his youth as his parents would invite the other members of their church to his fam- ' ily farm for that same experience. He has appreciated those who, even if not attending church servic- es, have taken the time to visit with him in person during the week. Over- all he has been gratefi11 for the warm welcome that he and his family have received in their" move to the area. ’ SNOW REMOVAL The Walsh County Extension Office is accept—' ing bids for sidewalk snow removal on both the front sidewalk going into the building and mail box and the back side walk behind the building or to the east.

He said he has had more conversations over the phone that he would like but he looks forward to a future where they can share the parson- age and use it as a place for hospitality with people eating together, shar- ing laughter, and hosting Bible studies. “I’ve always loved this area and the people up here,” he said, re- membering the days he spent leading a Bible study group in Grafton in his youth, the times he hauled potatoes, and the fiiendships he formed along the way. . ' “It’s just been really special for me to be up here,” he said. In 1987, the pastor of the Park River congregation, Rev. Norman Ten- neboe, passed away. Tenneboe died in a‘ tragic car accident before his dream of the Victory Free Lutheran Chuch in Park River was fully re- alized. A box of Tenneboe’s books ended up in Borg’s possession. “I didn’t crack them open for another 25- years,” he said. He found them again when he attended seminary classes down in Minneapolis. “I fell in love with them. They are some of my favorite books.” The signs that brought him back to Walsh County are ones he said that you can’t make up. “After 33 years, these books are back in the pastor’s study,” he said. “I am very, very fortunate to see God work like that.” ‘ Your community.

There isinthe con- vention’s hiStory no comparable » unanimity on an issue of any sig- ; nificance. Many reading this far will want to call for a pause, and say, quite cor- rectly: Well, the president, accord- ing to Article H, section 2, of the ' Constitution, “shall be Command- : er in Chief of the Army and Navy of : the United States, and of the Militia of the several states, when called into . the actual Service of the United States.” What presidential power, they may ask, is derived from the . Commander in Chief Clause of the ‘ Constitution? The convention did not create this title; rather, they borrowed it fiom the English, who introduced it in 1639 in one of their wars with the Scots. This title was conferred on the rank- ; ing military oflicial in any theater of battle. It did not include the author- ity to initiate war or to make foreign policy on behalfof England This of- ficial was always subordinate to a su- perior ofiicial — the ministry, Par- liament and the klng. The Continental Congress adopt- i ed this title with full knowledge of : its history and practice when it named George Washington to be “first General and Admiral” and commander in chief in June 1775. It . required of Washington the duty to : “punctually” observe all instruc- tions imposed by Congress, and to respond to any and all questions i raised by members. In this capaci- ty, Washington was very much sub- ordinate to Congress. mom, the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (see alzfdn.org) is an- :i other good resource you can tum to.

The president was given no authority to initiate war; that pow- er had been granted to Congress in the War Clause. The president, as commander in chief, as Alexander Hamilton explained in No. 69 of the Federalist Papers, would essential- ly wear two hats. First, when Congress declared war, or otherwise authorized military hostilities, the president would be ex- pected to wage war, although always subordinate to instructions and di— rections fiom Congress. Second, if the nation were attacked, then the president would be expected to re- pel the invasion, leaving to Congress the policy question of what to do next. Congress might declare war on the offending nation, authorizing the president to attack the invading forces, for example, or it might sue for peace. The point is that Congress would determine the policy to be im- plemented. The fiamers’ constitutional design to govem the war power largely held until 1950 when President Harry Tru- man asserted, for the first time in our history, executive authority to take the nation to war in Korea. Since then, Virtually every president of both parties has asserted the war power. This practice has corrupted the Con- stitution. Next week, we discuss the reasoning behind this assertion of unilateral presidential power to make war.
