I drove across the country to meet with my editor (Pastor Rossow)

No, seriously, it was a family vacation of sorts.

  • visiting friends in Nebraska and commiserating about parsonages, including the care congregations can show their shepherd
  • the joy and reminder of preaching at an ordination and watching congregations eagerly receive their new pastor
  • being reminded of the slogan, “God’s Word and Luther’s doctrine pure shall now and evermore endure” as carved on a beautiful church
  • ecumenically visiting dear ELS friends in their new southern Minnesota parish
  • seeing family in Illinois
  • reminding loved ones of baptism and it’s comforts
  • meeting with my editor over crepes, country fried steak, omelettes and discussing BJS while my children made a mess worthy of BJS headlines
  • buying novelty gifts for my family at a massive Bass Pro Shop
  • still awaiting another full day of driving with three small children
  • surprise visiting a cousin and fellow pastor in Iowa

Patience is:

  • driving from Wyoming to Illinois via SD, MN, and IA and NE and return without a DVD player
  • waiting for my wife to type this on a tiny smart phone keypad as we hurtle down the interstate

Love is:

  • typing aforementioned post for previously mentioned husband

  1. @Lloyd I. Cadle #8
    You are welcome,
    The ELS may serve as a good moderating force in the discussions that hopefully will take place between WELS and LCMS.
    The difficulty is that (I cannot say for WELS) LCMS has some housecleaning to do first.

  2. @Pastor Joshua Scheer #9 Pastor – Like I always tell everyone, President Harrison is a great man that God has raised up for the task at hand. God will use him in a mighty way! I pray for the leaders of WELS, ELS and the LCMS every day.
