Meet the Staff Monday - Jim

It's Meet the Staff Monday! Today, meet our second Jim! Jim Ritter has been working at the Collinsville Library since May 2009. He is an ordained clergyman in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod and spent 22 years in parish ministry.  Jim continues to serve the church by filling in for vacationing pastors and by visiting a number of home bound members of his home church.  He is married to Terry and has five children: Tom is a graduate assistant at ULA- Monroe in their media relations department, Andrew is teaching with Americorps in Philadelphia, Mark is a Sophomore at Metro East Lutheran High School, Hannah is in 4th grade at Good Shepherd Lutheran School, and Rebecca is home in heaven after just ten days of life on earth. Jim enjoys walking, is a fan of wildlife art - especially Canada Geese and Ducks, and enjoys discussion religion, theology and conservative politics. Stop by and say hello to Jim next time you see him!
