Description

In this interview, Mabel Knutson Pederson discusses the process of changing church services conducted in Norwegian to church services conducted in English at the East Zion Lutheran church in rural Starbuck, Minnesota. The transition lasted from 1925-1951 with two thirds of the services in English by 1951. She also touches on the problems the changeover caused in the community as a whole.
