Page 8A Wednesday, October 17, 2018 Burnet Bulletin Burnet, Texas News By Savanna Gregg Burner Bulletin First Lutheran Church of Burnet recently welcomed a new pastor to its congregation. Tim Johnson, hailing from North Dakota, moved down to Burnet with his wife, Sarah, their youngest son Isaak, and dogs, Max and Stormy, in July to begin serving at the church in an area completely different from the one to which he and his family were accustomed. Johnson said many people ask him about the difference in cultures, but he says he and his family are adjusting well. "It was both the culture and the geography," Johnson said. "Right now, it is pretty cold where we're from. When we moved here in July, it was 108 degrees." The call to First Lutheran Church brought its bittersweet moments, as the Johnsons left many family and friends in North Dakota, including their oldest son, Nathan, who is currently attending Minot State University.
