As a child, Orville G. Hiepler remembers his fathers laconic but eloquent response when asked, Hows it going? The answer never variedhe always replied, It must go! an affirmation that work, life, and the world must continue, no matter what.
Hiepler carried his fathers words and work ethic with him all his life, from his home on the windswept plains of North Dakota to seminary school and into his seventy-year ministry. His passion for saving souls, establishing new churches, and following through on project after project all came down to this simple expression: It must go!
A Prairie Farm Boy Looks over His Shoulder tells the story of Hiepler and how he progressed from a young boy in a one-room prairie schoolhouse to a dedicated Lutheran minister. His willingness to share his life with people no matter where he traveled, lived, or worked is a testament to the saving love of Christ that continues to guide Hieplers life.
Though a loving father and husband, Hieplers true identity is as a ministerand always will be. And while his story may be a look back, Hiepler continues to look forward, because It must go!
