The February 8 edition of The Living Church is available online to registered subscribers. Associate editor Douglas LeBlanc writes in the cover article:

When the city of North Platte, Nebraska, celebrates its 150th anniversary next year, the Church of Our Savior will have much to contribute. North Platte exists today because in 1866 the Union Pacific Railroad extended its line to that point along the North Platte River.

North Platte’s identity as a frontier town — a way station between railroads and covered wagons moving further west — has given Church of Our Savior several brushes with history, and attorney Steve Kay has recorded them with diligence.
