During a ceremony most likely never seen in this area before, members of the Spirit River Community Church were able to observe and participate in a traditional Tibetan home blessing ceremony that doubled as a celebration of the Dalai Lama’s 85th birthday on Monday, July 6.

The Spirit River Church, which recently moved to the West Bethel Methodist Church location, sold the Isanti building to the Tibetan American Foundation of Minnesota, who will use the it as their own Community Center.
