Dr. Michael D.F. Sculley was awarded the degree of Doctor of Theology, with distinction, from Almeda University -- School of Theology. Rev. Dr. Sculley may be remembered by area residents for his service as interim pastor at Good Shepherd and Our Saviour Lutheran churches in Clearbrook and Leonard from December 2007 through the summer of 2008. He moved to Conrad, Mont. In 2008 and served two churches, Pondera Valley and Golden West Lutheran churches until 2011. He now serves as pastor of St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Flanagan, Ill. In a letter dated February 26, 2014, he wrote that Almeda University is an independent study and on- line university, similar to the Institute of Lutheran Theology or the University of Phoenix. He said the "notion" of obtaining a post-graduate degree came to him while taking graduate classes at the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago. He wrote, "The idea came to me about combining two different theological constructs: systemic theology and church history." He noted, "The focus of this work was to look at, systematically, the various ways historically the Holy Spirit has moved, quite powerfully at times, on the Church, bringing it back to its 'First love' relationship with the Lord." He has been invited by the Institute of Lutheran Theology to teach a short course entitled, "Introduction to the History of the Reformation." In his closing paragraph he wrote: "I am thankful to the Lord who never leaves His followers without hope. And, I am blessed to know and witness to this verity. Through all the years of my life, in good times and bad, Christ Jesus has walked with me and kept His vision alive in me. The Lord is faithful to the work he has begun in all those who trust in him."

After that, I wiped down the clothesline Every time, but no matter, you can't Get it all off.
