We’re looking forward to taking our little road tripper out into Texas to see scenes like this (from last Sunday).
Up there on the hill is a building that was constructed in 1912 for St. John’s Lutheran Church of Berlin, Texas (north of US 79 between Thrall and Taylor) and now serves Prince of Peace Lutheran Church on Wuthrich Hill (also north of US 79 between Thrall and Taylor, but closer to Taylor).
St. John’s Lutheran Church merged with St. James’ Lutheran Church of Wuthrich Hill in 1947, and the St. John building was moved to its present location to serve the new congregation, which was named Prince of Peace.

from Annamarie Krieg Kolodziej, mom of Benjamin —
My Lutheran missionary grandfather Rev. Gottlieb Walter served at this church for about ten years. (I have to search the years, around the 1920’s.). There is a wrong fact here, the church actually came not from Berlin but from New Bern, Texas, which does not exist today except for a former dance hall which might still bear the name New Bern. The cemetery still exists too, the graves aren’t going anywhere. My grandparents and great-grandparents, great-aunts and great-uncles are buried there. I also researched Krieg Brothers Chevrolet Company, and wrote a paper on it in the 1980’s. My Aunt Maude offered me a whole boxful of the shop postcards, and I only took a few, to my later regret. She also wanted to give me her bird glasses, and I felt bad to take them. Now my motto is, take everything anybody offers me. Jeremy, we have a lot to talk about.
