2nd Trip-Bulgarian Couple Visits Wednesday, December 27th of 2006
One can see the changes of the landscape as they get closer to Duluth. After 2 1/2 to 2 3/4 hours of on the road (2 hour straight drive with no stops), we anticipated entering Duluth as we climbed up a hill and went down overseeing the city. The slope was so dramatic for me that I can feel the air pressure change in my ears. This is very similar to my past experience on a plane as it lands on the runway.

"1000' Walter J. McCarthy Jr. ship entering the ship canal and going under the Aerial Lift Bridge! Duluth, MN."
-"Window Shopping" at the Harbor
We went to the Dewitt-Seitz Marketplace, which was only a couple blocks from the "lift-bridge". Then we checked out this cool "native-american" theme store...
-Drive Around the City
We drove up a steep hill going north from the harbor, which brought some vivid memories from the last time I was here as a kid.
Then we went further north to check out the Duluth International Airport
-Visiting St. Scholastica Monastary
Sister "Maria" shares some history of this "Nativity Scene". This was actually carved from wood that was sent from Germany. The artist was from the nation of Hungary.
After swinging through the catholic school, we drove by the University of Minnesota-Duluth
-Coming South from Two Harbors
We notice the extravagant new development north of downtown Duluth. My Bulgarian friends were just awe of the large "houses/mansions" along the shore. One in particular was the Glensheen Castle.
-Coming West from Superior-Douglas County, Wisconsin
During our road-trip, I get excited on visiting the cities/towns along the way. The only stop on our way to Duluth from St. Paul was Pine City. Before heading back to St. Paul, we first stopped at Black Bear Casino in Carlton. The 2nd of two stops on the way back to St. Paul was Stacy, which we just went through for gas (almost got a full 10 gallong tank for the whole trip and back). At these stops I would post a Gospel-Tract on the bulletin boards by the restrooms, which was made the trip more of a evangelism-oriented trip.
Jesus Movement History
A brother in the Lord from my local church shared with me about how he was involved in the "Jesus Movement" while attending school in Duluth. After going to Duluth, I wanted to "search" more about this...
"Traveling in an old bus and a few cars throughout the summer of 1971, they became one foci of media attention -- long-haired, hippy evangelists who had set out to "evangelize the United States." In late 1971 the group left the "home base" behind in Milwaukee and traveled south to Gainsville, Florida, where musical performances were made for the college crowd at the University of Florida at Gainsville. They found little positive response in Gainsville, and felt they were also being confused with another highly publicized group, the "Children of God." Discouraged by their lack of success, the group returned to Duluth, Minnesota in hopes of forming a permanent community. Shortly thereafter, they felt "burdened by the need of the city," and relocated in Chicago, Illinois-
Religious Movements, from the Library of Virginia
"By February of 1972, JP Milwaukee had grown to nearly two hundred members. The teams returned to the Milwaukee base for a graduation service, and on April 23, 1972, with a year of leadership under his belt, Palosaari embarked on an outreach to Europe with the Sheep and around thirty of the older members. 11 J. W. Herrin took Resurrection Band along with thirty Jesus People, most of whom had been with him in Benton Harbor, Michigan, to minister as "Jesus People USA (JPUSA) Travelling Team." Frank Bass, a Duluth Christian from the traditional church, kept a small number for JP Milwaukee's "Home Base," which was supposed to serve as a coordinating center, while JPM left "Jesus People communes in Duluth and Davenport." 12 Meanwhile, the bulk of JP Milwaukee's number--many of them newer converts--became a part of Pentecostal tent revivalist Bill Lowrey's "Christ is the Answer.""-Jesus People USA
" What happened to the members of Jesus People Milwaukee who remained in the United States? Approximately ten members joined a commune in Duluth, Minnesota.(117) A second group of approximately thirty, led by John Herrin, headed southward to Florida. This group was Jesus People USA, and will be dealt with in greater detail below. Approximately fifty followed Bill Lowery, a travelling tent evangelist.(118) The remainder of the group was supposed to maintain the discipleship training school; however, this effort was short-lived:
That lasted less than a year. A man [Frank Bass], who had been affiliated with Youth for Christ up in Duluth became charismatic during the revival time we were up there, moved down and joined us. And he was left with the youngest and the weirdest group of people out of the Milwaukee [group], and it just didn't fly. . . I don't think he was experienced. I think it was a little bit of a shame that he was left in charge, because here's a guy who just moved out of a family with three kids, working for Youth for Christ, and all of a sudden thrown in a situation where he had to watch over thirty spiritually spooky, weirded [sic], unstable people.(119)"...- JESUS PEOPLE USA: AN EXAMINATION OF AN URBAN COMMUNITARIAN RELIGIOUS GROUP a Florida State University paper
