Fluttering About

Began the day with a stimulating discussion in our bible class at church. Pastor Petersen is always fun to listen to. The service and sermon was, as always, edifying.

Went to our first congregational voter's meeting after church since joining Redeemer Lutheran Church. Started with a nice lunch of ham sandwiches w/real horseradish. I luv the stuff. And homemade pumpkin pie. Then in less than an hour, we heard reports, elected officers AND adopted a budget.

After Jacob and I got haircuts, I spent a good part of the afternoon lying in the La-Z-Boy dozing and reading my latest novel by Tom Wolfe.

I spent the evening getting prepared for a recruitment trip for the seminary. At 6 a.m. tomorrow morning, the security guy is coming to pick me up and drive me to the Fort Wayne International Airport. Poor me. I gotta go to sunny southern California for 6 days. Actually it's all business. Starting at our college in Irvine and ending up in San Diego, I will be ardently recruiting for the seminary. Amazingly I have been criticized for asking for people to pray for me on this blog, but I'll do it anyway. Please pray for our efforts to identify gifted men for the Office of the Holy Ministry. Pray the Lord of the harvest to send forth laborers. The fields are ready but the workers are too few.

You have been criticized for asking people to pray for you? That's truly sad. I ask this in all sincerity, but honestly...who in their right mind would say, or think, such a thing?

I'm troubled by the extreme elements in our church body and the deeply erroneous points of view that issue forth from them.

God bless your trip!

May God richly bless those who fail to understand the power of prayer and the blessing we receive from it.

May your trip glorify God and enable those who hear and feel God's call to ministry understand that ministry happens in their daily lives already, but begin to see the joy of sharing it with others as workers in the vinyard, trained to clearly distinguish between law and Gospel and proclaim it openly and in love for all people!!

Our prayers go with you Pastor!!! May you return safely to your family with the knowledge that they and you continue to be in our prayers and in His loving Hands!!!

Yours In Christ,
