If you are wondering who created this website,
my name is Lanny R. Carlson.
I am married, and have two grown children and one grandchild, and a teen-aged daughter still at home. A native Texan, I completed seminary
in Kansas City, MO, in 1971, serving student appointments in Kansas, and then served churches in Texas 1971-1978, and in Iowa 1978 - 2002.
Most recently, I served I as pastor of the
Terril and Langdon United Methodist Churches,
two very small congregations in northwest Iowa.
Since taking early retirement in June, 2002, I have been employed at MarketLink in Estherville, Iowa, where we are making our home. Over the past few years, and especially through some very difficult times, the music of Darlene Zschech has ministered to me personally in a powerful way.
It is in appreciation of and in support of her ministry
that I have created this website, and hope that it will minister to you as well.
