A snowy pathway
Walking along Johnny Cake Ridge Road, you will now encounter Minnesota snow along your pathway.
Psalm 85:1-2, 8-13
1 You have been gracious to your land, O Lord; you have restored the good fortune of Jacob.
2 You have forgiven the iniquity of your people and blotted out all their sins.
8 I will listen to what the Lord God is saying; for you speak peace to your faithful people and to those who turn their hearts to you.
9 Truly, your salvation is very near to those who fear you, that your glory may dwell in our land.
10 Steadfast love and faithfulness have met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.
11 Faithfulness shall spring up from the earth and righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12 The Lord will indeed grant prosperity and our land will yield its increase.
13 Righteousness shall go before the Lord and shall prepare for God a pathway.

Located 30 minutes south of Eagan in Northfield, St. Olaf College founded its St. Olaf Choir back in 1912.
