The installation service was beautiful and joyous and attended by many people. The crowd overflowed the chapel, in fact. Following the service, we had brats and beer on the quad. A band played tunes. President Harrison joined the band for some picking. That’s probably a first! I had to take a picture on my phone so you all could see. Hopefully Pastor Rossow got some better footage.
I was pleased to meet some BJS friends, revisit with old friends, and meet new people. Just a wonderful day and a beautiful celebration. I don’t think I’ve seen so many Lutherans smiling so much in a long time!
