"We simply want to go to a church service on Sundays"

A future church planter should broaden his and his family's horizon, so last Sunday we drove out to visit a different LCMS church, which has been planted a couple of years ago. We checked for worship times and directions on the Web. Church service was supposed to be at 10:30 am. When we arrived, there was a little group of musicians playing outside the High School. When we were looking for the auditorium, we were informed that there won't be a worship service today. Just outside play. Hm. The pastor wore a T-Shirt saying "Don't go to church".

But that was exactly what we wanted to do. So we went to the Baptist Church next door who had a good old-fashioned service going on. We were invited to pot-luck-supper and all. The kids just thought it ended on a bad note, since a lot of people were crying at the altar call, we didn't hear about forgiveness of sins nor did we receive a blessing.

Reluctant Socialites

...that's what Chris and I are this quarter. And the blog suffers from too few updates. Sorry about that.

This year Chris is the secretary of the Student Association, hosts Creation Worldview Workshops, was interviewed on the doctrine of the Two Kingdoms, participated in the "German Days at the Sem" and other things.
