A Long, but Blessed Day
Winkel this morning at Lord of New Life in Midland. Our Lord fed us on Word and Sacrament through His servant, Pr. Kurt Eichinger, and Pr. Dave Reed, who served as our pastoral delegate to the LCMS Convention this past July, presented his report, and led us in a discussion of, the Convention, highlighting the elections made and major resolutions passed and declined. He also shared with us his experiences during his recent trip to Ireland, along with several Irish jokes he picked up over there, using a perfect Irish accent, to boot. Good stuff! :) It was good to see such a good turnout - every congregation in our circuit had pastoral representation, and I think there were only two brother pastors who couldn't make it. I spent the rest of the afternoon bringing the Holy Word and Holy Sacrament of our Lord's Body and Blood to shut-ins (still have a few more to see in the next couple of days), which is always a great blessing, and even made it to the polls to vote, too. And, when I finally got home this evening, I was thrilled to see that my copy of "Christ's Church" by Bo Giertz had arrived today. A good day all around!
