      Yup, it's on the website: John and Georgia Ratzenberger. Don't know what the connection was then, or now.

      Hello, Christopher,

      Is, "Incidentally, the initial Monastery grounds on Vashon Is. were donated by John Ratzenberger, Cliff on *Cheers*", TRUE?!

      I got the sense that he was raised WELS and then CLC; perhaps he became LCMS
      later in life or when he went to college, etc.� Outside of the Midwest it
      can be hard to get to the 'right' kind of Lutheran church.� I ran into that
      problem in Boston and New York, and just had a conversation with my mom
      about it when they were visiting PA.� My sister had the same problem going
      to college in Europe.� Perhaps the same was the case in WA or wherever Fr.
      Tryphon lived at different times in his life.

      One thing we can all agree on is he wasn't ELCA!� :)

      (I'm getting flashbacks of that episode of *Cheers*...� Incidentally, the
      initial Monastery grounds on Vashon Is. were donated by John Ratzenberger,
      Cliff on *Cheers*.)
